The Five Creepiest Types of Cinematic Teeth

As The Bone Guys have discussed before in great detail, horror villains often get their greatest scare factor from their teeth, whether it be the gargantuan choppers of a great white shark or the razor-sharp incisors of your average vampire.

In celebration of Halloween, we’ve rounded up five of the creepiest types of teeth you’re bound to see on the silver screen, as you scream in delight at the latest slasher flick or horror masterpiece. 

Let’s get into it!

Teeth type: Gross rotten teeth

As Seen On: Sloth in The Goonies, Hell-Cat Maggie in Gangs of New York, a possessed Regan in The Exorcist, Freddie Kruger, the old, chin-biting woman in Drag Me To Hell, Hellraiser’s Chattering Cenobite

Why They Freak Us Out: We’ve all had run-ins with that friend whose breath is really, really bad. The thought of any one of these sets of grody, gross, slobbery teeth even approaching us makes us want to run for the nearest box of mint-waxed floss.

Teeth type: Sharp Fangs

As Seen On: Dracula, Jaws from Dr. No, the Orcs in Lord of the Rings, Christopher Walken’s Hessian in The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Pennywise the Clown in It

Why They Freak Us Out: Just when you thought a murderous clown/seductive Transylvanian count couldn’t get any more threatening, they bare their needle-sharp incisors and crack their powerful jaws, revealing a secret weapon that is much more vicious than the regular ol’ human dentures you’re packing.

Teeth type: Big, crazy animal canines

As Seen On: Jaws, Jurassic Park’s T-Rex, Cujo, the fish Piranha, Lake Placid's giant croc, Sarlacc in Return of the Jedi

Why They Freak Us Out: After 200,000 years of living in the wild, our human brains have a natural ability to turn towards terror as it comes to dying in the mouth of a large ferocious animal. A good instinct for self-preservation, really, when one thinks about it.

Teeth type: Teeth. Where There Shouldn’t Be Teeth.

As Seen On: The teeth-covered Tooth Child in Channel Zero, the ballerina in Cabin in the Woods, Dawn O'Keefe and her private parts in Teeth

Why They Freak Us Out: There’s something jarring about misplaced anatomy, scrambling our natural ability to recognize faces. Or private parts.

Teeth type: Teeth from galaxies far, far away

As Seen On: Alien, Aliens, Predators 1-5, the eponymous organism in The Thing

Why They Freak Us Out: They’re essentially elite apex predators whose advanced evolution has equipped them with sleek killing machines. Right in the same hole you and I use to place Wacky Wafers, cheese, and Hostess Ding-Dongs.

“Sour Candy is almost as bad for your teeth as battery acid…


A report by Northwest Dentistry says sucking on sour candy can be nearly as bad for your teeth as consuming battery acid. Teeth start losing enamel at pH 4, and many sour candies have a pH of 3 or less. Battery acid has a pH of 1.

Several candies have a pH very close to that, including WarHeads Sour Spray (pH 1.6), Wonka Fun Dip Powder (1.8), and Pixy Stix Powder (1.9). Even original Skittles and Brach’s Gummi Bears have a pH of 2.5."
