Review

If all you're looking for in a horror movie are revolting pictures, The Dentist should be a real treat. Other than that, however, this is offensive movie making at its best/worst. Brian Yusna directs this more or less as an infomercial either for or against dental hygiene, take your (tooth) pick. Whatever plot you may find here exists solely as an excuse for displaying the evils a wicked dentist could carry out. What's next? The Gynecologist?
