The Movie: Teeth
Since this shindig is part of our lady-themed movie party series, the movie we chose is VERY VERY, um, lady-themed. Though this one is not directed by a woman, it does pass the Bechdel Test with flying colors and offers a fascinating take on female sexuality. Oh yeah, and it’s so. much. fun.
- What is Teeth? A coming-of-age / horror film about a teen with a toothed vagina. Just trust us on this one.
- How to Watch: We rented it from Amazon for $2.99.
- Running time: 1 hour 34 min
- Rated: R
The Snacks: Teeth-themed
We got inspired, what can we say? Here is how to make…
- Apple Dentata (aka Apple, Peanut Butter, Cashew Teeth Snacks)
- Teeth Cheese Plate
- Gory Pomegranate Wedges
The Drink: Fresh Bloody Mary
This is our fresh-tasting version of a bloody mary. Healthy with all the nice veggies, not-so-healthy with all the vodka. Check out the full recipe here!
The Pre-Game Activity: Making Valentines Out of Garbage!
Parties never get boring when you add activities, so before popping on the film, we had a little craft session making Valentines with friends – out of garbage and recycled materials. We used a broken umbrella, fabric scraps, paper bags, and anything else we could get our hands on.
Here are some of our masterpieces. Our buddies are crazy and creative:)
Want more inspiration? We’ve got some ideas for writing fun, feministy Valentines for your lovies.
Did you try this party at home? What snacks did you make? What did you and your friends think of Teeth? (In our party, there was some debate as to whether the film was feminist or not. What did you think?) Other parties you want to see us do? We want to hear from you!
