      David W Bernsens a great actor and plays his part well. The movie as a whole has its moments and there's some interesting dental gore but overall it doesn't rise above reasonably good. Not a bad waste of a few hours though as there's certainly much worse out there. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/27/23 Full Review Will S I adore everything about this movie! It's gonzo and mean. Well acted and directed and the effects are beyond believable. Bring on part 3 already! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Tiago S Um filme sem pé nem cabeça, no qual a traição da mulher ele começou a ver todas as mulheres como 'sujas', além de matar o amante dela e ela juntos, tentou demonstrar o que a traição faz a uma pessoa mas é verdade é que foi praticamente o fato de por a temática de dentista que seria o principal assunto em pauta neste filme, mas tudo é muito bagunçado pois nada é correlato só pelo menos depois de semanas ou meses vendo esses filmes que pego no YouTube, o final salvou mas com ressalva que nunca deveria ter indo para o lado do dentista, pois nada se liga a isso além do descontrole psicológico do personagem. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 04/17/22 Full Review Audience Member Original and scary, ages 17+ only (LOL)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Scott B OK, if you read the description you might think that this is likely 1996 B-movie horror cheese. Which it is. But it's more of a finely aged Parmigiano Reggiano than a Kraft American slice. The acting is good, the other characters generally don't make stupid choices, and the close up shots of the dental "work" looks 100% real, IMO. Think I might check out the sequel. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/04/21 Full Review Audience Member i thought this movie was so bad it's good. the effects are amazing and i like how graphic the gore looks. the tomato-meter should at least earn a 30% instead of 0%.
