A Biting Analysis

| 4/9/2008 4:14:25 PM

If your idea of ultimate genital danger is a pair of zip-fly jeans and a burned-out light bulb, you haven’t seen the movie trailer for Teeth. The film, which is the subject of a great analysis by Nerve, tells the tale of a high school student with a unique anatomical feature and her unfortunate bedmates. Nerve contextualizes the film by exploring the history of vagina dentata mythology, from the demon Asmodeus of Judeo-Christian legend to toothed vaginas in Native American parables.
