Teeth

Every now and then you stumble across a story about some film you never heard of, and it makes you want to jump out of your skin. This is such a story. First, observe the banned poster (via Empire):Now read the Cinematical story, which if you looked close enough at the poster and then recoiled, you already can guess:
    While the film is already out on DVD here in the states, across the pond Teeth is gearing up for a June 20th theatrical premiere. And to coincide with that, Empire has released a "banned" poster for the horror-comedy about a wholesome teenage girl who learns she has teeth inside her vagina. Of course, these teeth remain a minor issue until our hero decides it's time to start experimenting sexually with the opposite sex.
Gahhhh!!! At least it is an original idea. Still... gahhh!!!

This sounded very familiar and sure enough FilmFreakCentral.net gave it 1 1/2 stars in a 2007 Sundance capsule.

"Call me prejudiced, but this isn't a universal human story, it's a story that explicitly revolves around straight sex. Having a gay director tell it is kind of like having Spike Lee direct Ordinary People."

Oh, this is not an original idea for a story -- it's a very old one, actually. Just Goodle "vagina dentata" for some creepy linkage.
