So whomever did the promotional material for this movie obviously decided that showing their comely young star half-naked, wearing Uggs with a stamp covering her naughty bits would get more viewers than something more representative of what the movie is about.
Out of curiosity, what would you have put on the poster?

Re: Teeth

Even though she's technically naked, I think this poster is a lot more tasteful.

That's what was used on Netflix's menu.

I think that's giving away too much. I went into the movie not knowing anything about it, and one of its greatest pleasures was the moment when I realized exactly where the teeth were. It's a cool "a-hah!" moment. That poster sort of spoils the surprise.

Re: Teeth

How do you go to see this movie without realizing where the "teeth" are? What did you think it was about?

Re: Teeth

I had no idea there was even a question of where the teeth were. I didn't have any idea or guess what it might be about. My friend had the movie in his home and asked me and another friend to watch it with him. All I knew was that it was called "Teeth". Yes, if I'd gone to see it in a theatre and seen the poster, I might have an idea, but this was one of the rare occasions where I started watching a movie knowing absolutely nothing about it.

Yep, because whenever I see or hear the word "teeth" the first thing that pops into my mind is vagina dentata.

Re: Teeth

What's interesting to me is that movie is seemingly trying to make a statement about how much "secrecy" and censorship surrounds female genitalia, this is most evident in the Sex Ed scene. Yet in this movie what does it NOT show?

And what does it show a lot of?

Re: Teeth

To be fair, showing a vagina with teeth would bump the movie into Troma territory. It would just look ridiculous.

And why does the movie not showing what it's saying is surrounded by secrecy suggest hypocrisy to you? Why not interpret it as one more way to reinforce its theme?
