teeth (Daniel Gray and Tom Brown, 2015)

Mouths are strange places as every horror fan knows. They are full of hard, piercing weaponry set amid wet, fleshy muscle and sensitive, waiting nerves. It is also the main portal to our insides, a place where good things should go in and bad things should not come out (but sometimes do anyways). Daniel Gray and Tom Brown’s teeth (2016) is not just preoccupied with mouths, but also with dead things and dissection – a combination not designed for the squeamish. Richard E. Grant‘s narration offers a sense of dignity to this rather ghoulish short, ably offering some misdirection to the thud of the film’s ironically deadpan, matter of fact conclusion.
