NIGHT TEETH MOVIE REVIEW
As October comes to an end, it’s time to look back on the spooky outings we’ve had a chance to sample, one of which comes from Netflix: “Night Teeth”. Jorge Lendeborg Jr. stars as Benny Perez, a freelance driver taking over for his brother who’s plunged into a night of vampiric espionage when he’s stuck peddling around vampires Blaire (Debby Ryan) and Zoe (Lucy Fry). A plot to end a long truce with humans and take over the vampire world in one night of carnage with Blaire and Zoe as the tools of destruction has poor Benny fearing for his life, for the life of his brother who leads a coalition to protect the truth, and also weirdly dealing with him having a huge crush on Blaire. With Alfie Allen coming in as the mastermind, does this thriller earn its comparisons to works like “Collateral” and “Vampire: The Masquerade”? Find out as Chad, Davey, and Rae sink their teeth…into “Night Teeth”.

Davey Peppers (Staff Writer, Audio and Video Editor, Screener Squad, Eye on the Prize)
Many words have been used to describe Davey Peppers. Words like “Eh” and “Please go outside, just once”. He studied film and advertising at Southern Illinois University – Carbondale, because two degrees in fields with terrible job placement is better than one, and currently runs the YouTube channel Game Mechanics. He is easily distracted by shiny things and even the most basic passing mention of a movie being sad. He can be found on Twitter as well as staring at a blank wall wondering what the point is, and if his spending so much time staring at walls is the reason he’s not funny.
Chad Halvorsen (Screener Squad)
Chad Halvorsen currently resides in Milwaukee, WI, where he produces and edits commercials, films, and everything in between. He was always a fan of film/television growing up, spending days in the Summer, making (terrible) home movies with his brothers. Little did he know that passion would carry on into adulthood. Since 2006, Chad has worked for several agencies in various departments. Shooting, producing, editing, production management, directing, and when forced to, writing copy. In 2015, Chad decided to take the big leap and become a freelancer. Since then, he’s produced content for Lyft, AT&T, Target, and Discovery Network. His passion lies in entertaining people, making them feel better, even for a moment. All the pain and suffering of this business is worth it, if even just one person views his work. Chad is a frequent podcaster, most notably posing as a co-host for the podcast “The Film Illogical Society.”
Lyrae Anderson (Screener Squad)
You can call me Rae. You can also call me a film lover. I’ll watch it all — small screen; big screen, and everything in between. I have attended and worked for Fantastic Fest and South by Southwest for many years. I married a film geek as well. While we don’t agree on everything, we agree on our love of movies.
