Megan Fox and Sydney Sweeney star in the vampire crime thriller Night Teeth, but the film utterly wastes their abilities, which is why the actresses should star in a prequel. Night Teeth isn’t the first film to combine vampires and crime drama. Blade and even the Buffy the Vampire Slayer spinoff Angel do a better job of bringing neo-noir concepts to the genre than this one. Night Teeth has a slew of flaws, but a prequel starring Megan Fox and Sydney Sweeney might help the fledgling franchise succeed.
Benny (Jorge Lendeborg Jr.), a poor college student with musical ambitions, moonlights as his brother’s driver one fateful night in Night Teeth. When Benny picks up vampires Blaire (Debby Ryan) and Zoe (Lucy Fry), a night of blood-drinking, partying, and general mayhem follows. Victor (Alfie Allen) breaks a vampire ceasefire at the start of Night Teeth so that the villain may take over the vampire underworld. Blaire and Zoe are initially on Victor’s side, but Blaire changes her mind near the end. She assists Benny and Jay (Ral Castillo) in defeating the adversaries Victor and Zoe, but Benny gets bitten and transformed as a result.
The concept of Megan Fox and Sydney Sweeney as vampire overlords is intriguing enough to merit a Night Teeth prequel. We only see them when Victor appears to disclose his plan and subsequently murders them. Night Teeth, in my opinion, wastes Megan Fox’s potential by introducing and then murdering off her character in the same scene. There’s a lot of mystery around Grace (Fox), Eva (Sweeney), and the vampire coven’s inner workings in general. Unfortunately, the movie glosses over this. Night Teeth does, however, leave the door open for a prequel in which the actresses might show off their talents more fully. A film on Grace and Eva, the establishment of the vampire underground, and an examination of their roles within it would be intriguing. Fox could generate the same campy, vicious intensity she brought to Jennifer’s Body, a cult favorite. Eva’s character would be unlike anything Sweeney has seen before. However, she possesses sufficient acting talent to truly inhabit the role, which would only serve to enhance her position as a rising star.
Night Teeth, in my opinion, concentrates on the least engaging plot, and Netflix may repeat the error with the sequel. The finale clearly hints at the prospect of a sequel to the franchise, and if the present film does well enough, the streaming service will have no trouble releasing another picture. It’s understandable why Fox and Sweeney were passed up for the starring parts of Blaire and Zoe. What is perplexing, though, are the tiny parts in which they were cast. If Netflix opts not to develop a prequel with Sweeney and Fox at the lead, the corporation will be missing out on a huge opportunity. watch the clip below.
