YMMV / Teeth

  • Audience-Alienating Premise: If you're pro-chastity and like your entertainment to be family friendly with wholesome morals in general, watching Dawn get sexually corrupted by her foul-mouthed misbehaving peers is likely to make this movie a revolting experience for you. If, on the other hand, you're into sleaze and skin flicks or just like stories in which Everyone Has Lots of Sex in general, you probably aren't going to enjoy watching guys getting their penises bitten off. Feminists won't much enjoy the Lifetime Movie of the Week feel of the movie, and the kind of women who do like Lifetime movies still aren't likely to enjoy the graphic violence and gore. Basically, any Target Audience this movie might have is not going to like certain aspects.
  • Bile Fascination: Probably the motivation for a lot of the people who did watch. Like a train wreck, you might not want to watch, but it's kind of hard to look away...
    • Narm Charm is also a possibility, and any Rape and Revenge afficionado who's in a hurry to get to the "revenge" part might like to see this.
    "I haven't even jerked off since Easter!"
    • Dawn suddenly thinking about The Black Scorpion while trying to masturbate and being too scared to finish.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: The only time we ever see a vagina in the movie is a medical book diagram. The movie ends up remarkably afraid to show what could have been true Nightmare Fuel.
    • Maybe there never was much to see; by all indications, that doctor who got a much better look than we ever did never detected anything out of the ordinary until he started to "test" Dawn's "flexibility" with his hand. Apparently, no one sees the teeth until they bite, and maybe not even then.
  • Paranoia Fuel: Baked into the script, since the Vagina Dentata was basically Paranoia Fuel in all those ancient myths the story cites as well.
