Summary

A stylish vampire thriller that makes good use of its LA setting. While the story isn’t the most original, Night Teeth is still decent enough to provide its audience with nearly 2 hours of entertainment.

This review of the Netflix film Night Teeth does not contain spoilers.

The best way to describe Night Teeth is that it’s a pretty standard vampire thriller. Whilst it doesn’t bring anything new to the genre, it doesn’t take anything away. The end result makes an entertaining movie, that whilst it could have benefitted from stronger characters, still has a fairly entertaining plot.

Night Teeth follows Benny (Jorge Lendeborg Jr), who after taking a night of moonlighting as a chauffeur, gets drawn into the dark Vampire world. With war seemingly breaking out between humans and vampires, Benny has to unwillingly help the two vampires; Blaire (Debbie Ryan) and Zoe (Lucy Fry) in an attempt to ensure his own survival.

There’s a host of A-List stars that pop up throughout Night Teeth. These include Alexander Ludwig, Megan Fox, Bryan Batt, and Alfie Allen. Whilst it’s left to Alfie Allen to take the role of “main villain”, it is, however, Megan Fox who leaves a lasting impression. As a result, you wonder why she didn’t have a larger role.

As for the ending, it’s as you would expect. Although, there’s nothing wrong with that. Night Teeth never gives you the impression that it would pull the rug and provide you with one of the most shocking/unpredictable endings. No, instead, you have the impression that everyone will get what they deserve. And they do. It’s a satisfying conclusion. Although based on a conversation between two of the characters in the movie’s closing moments, it wouldn’t be too much of a surprise if a sequel was to happen.

Yes, the vampire genre has been overdone (but let’s be honest, which genre hasn’t been overdone?), but Night Teeth has enough story present to warrant the audience watching it. It’s a stylish approach and makes great use of the setting in L.A. Had the film not felt as stylish as it does, then maybe the entertainment value would have decreased significantly.
