This debut feature from Mitchell Lichtenstein (son of Pop Art painter Roy Lichtenstein) brings the myth of the "vagina dentata" to life in the form of innocent high school virgin Dawn (incredible newcomer Jess Weixler). At first frightened by her budding sexuality and her ... um, unique adaptation, Dawn soon discovers it's the perfect thing for getting revenge on sex-crazed teenage boys. By mixing the dark suburban wit of Welcome to the Dollhouse with the gory excess of Troma Films, Lichtenstein creates a taboo-tweaking horror comedy about puberty, sexuality and man-eating ladyparts. 88 minutes R.
