2008 Kaedrin Movie Awards: Best High Concept Film

The nominations for the 2008 Kaedrin Movie Awards were announced last week. This week, I’ll be announcing two winners every day, culminating in a post with my top 10 movies of the year and possibly some other wrap-up posts.

Best High Concept Film: Teeth

This film is surprisingly successful considering it’s rather odd and unconventional premise. Our main character is Dawn, a typical High School teenager in small town America. In fact, this town is powered by a nuclear power plant, and Dawn has developed an “adaptation.” She has teeth in an… unexpected… place. A place that is unfortunate for all the males in the movie, especially the ones who attempt to take advantage of Dawn (which is most of them – not something I particularly like about the movie, but still). So yeah, this is about as weird as it gets, but it works surprisingly well. A hard movie to recommend (especially to males), but it is a bit of fun.

And that wraps up the regular awards. Stay tuned for some Arbitrary Awards on Sunday, followed by a top 10.
