7:00 pm Q&A

Midnite weekend screenings happen on Friday & Saturday nights (meaning arrive on Friday and/or Saturday night by 11:45pm for seating, the movie starts after midnite)!

Followed by a post-screening Q&A with the film’s writer and director Mitchell Lichtenstein

Director: Mitchell Lichtenstein Run Time: 94 min. Format: 35mm Rating: R Release Year: 2007

Starring: Jess Weixler, John Hensley, Josh Pais, Hale Appleman

Presented with Playwrights Horizons

Dawn (Jess Weixler) is an active member of her high-school chastity club but, when she meets Tobey (Hale Appleman), nature takes its course, and the pair answer the call. They suddenly learn she is a living example of the vagina dentata myth, when the encounter takes a grisly turn.

Also joining the Q&A will be award-winning writers Michael R. Jackson (A Strange Loop) and Anna K. Jacobs (POP!) — the minds behind TEETH’s musical comedy adaptation, which premieres Off Broadway at Playwrights Horizons this month. Discover the genesis of the original TEETH and learn about its bloody journey to the stage in a colorful conversation moderated by horror journalist Ricky J. Duarte.
