Penis Devoured By Toothed Vagina

[rating:7/10]

Vagina Dentata is a classic folktale of a toothed vagina capable to chomping an unwelcome penis off of a man during intercourse. Sounds fun, doesn’t it? Well, maybe not, but it does sound like a great idea for a horror comedy. Myths regarding killer anatomy definitely fall into the category of “things that should be made into a movie” in my book, thus when I heard of a film with a plot surrounding Vagina Dentata, it shot directly to the top of my Netflix list. However, after watching this film (yet before writing this review) I decided to look the myth of the killer cooch up in Google. One would assume that this type of thing could never truly happen, but upon this further study it seems to be a possibility according to at least one medical website:

Dermoid cysts are derived from the outer layers of embryonic skin, and they are capable of growing hair and teeth and bones, anything that comes from the outer layers of the embryo. They can occur anywhere.

That said, 2008’s indie film Teeth goes beyond dermoid cysts and right into full on razor sharp chompers. Dawn O’Keefe (Jess Weixler) doesn’t realize that her vagina is inhabited by the flesh-eating bicuspids until her Jesus-freak church-going boyfriend suddenly decides to forcefully rape her. The result of said attack, he loses his life, and, of course, his member.

Her boyfriend is not the only victim of the killer canines, as a boy from school and her half brother find themselves in some wacky mishaps of the wang, as well.

It’s easy to see that the film is going to be an entertaining one from the start, when a young boy and girl start playing “I’ll show you mine if you show me yours” and the boy loses a finger. Disappoint you, this film will not. Not only does the film tackle some legitimate sexual issues in our society while coupling said issues with a ridiculously wonderful sense of grotesque fascination, but it also doesn’t shy away from showing some very realistic gore in the form of mutilated man flesh. The social commentary does possibly fall a bit short at time, but with such a ridiculous tale of awesomeness, who cares?

See the film, unless of course you are squeamish or scared of vaginas.
