Even Lambs Have Teeth is a horror film about 2 young girls who take revenge on the people that abduct them and keep them captive.
Katie (Tiera Skovbye) and Sloane (Kirsten Prout) are best friends and want to go away for a weekend shopping trip in New York. To do this they first must earn some money so decide to go and work on a Community Supported Agriculture organic farm in the middle of nowhere.
On the way the meet brothers Jed and Lucas, 2 clean-cut good looking boys who they accept a lift from. Rather than take them to the farm they take them home to their mother who drugs them and then they are held captive in metal storage containers to be used as pleasure for the men in the town.
They eventually escape, but freedom is not enough and both girls go to the local hardware store and purchase a variety of “weapons” and return to get the their revenge and kill all their captors.
Overall the basic premise of the story is 2 kills get kidnapped, tortured and abused by a family of small town psychos, although everybody in town seems to be extremely weird. After escaping they return to kill their abusers and captors using a variety of strange, brutal and sadist methods.
To start with the film made sense but after their escape it becomes kind of surreal as the 2 teenage girls who are only interested in flirting with boys become some kind of super detectives, mastermind killers and are able to track, find and brutally murder not only their kidnappers but anyone in town who had abused them.
As a story it just wasn’t quite there and was quite poorly acted, where in the world could 2 scantily clad teenage girls wander around town covered in blood, chaining people to the back of a pickup truck and dragging them around town go unnoticed and no one saying a word of calling the police? But if you like your horror films featuring brutal sadistic murder, of which one was quite inventive then it is worth a watch. If you want a story that that makes sense and is fairly logical then I wouldn’t recommend it.
As I said, if you just watch it for entertainment value rather than a good story then it is fairly entertaining.
