Night Teeth - What We Know So Far

It feels like it's been a while since we've had a really fun vampire movie, doesn't it? We're talking about an entertaining horror-thriller that doesn't take itself too seriously, in the vein of "The Lost Boys." You would think there would be vampire movies like that all the time, but they're actually relatively few and far between. What gives?

Well, it sounds like Netflix is going to try to change that with its upcoming movie "Night Teeth," which will premiere on the streaming service later this year. "Night Teeth" is about a driver who is hired to chauffeur a pair of beautiful and mysterious women for the night. They turn out to be more than he bargained for. We don't know too much about the TV-MA movie beyond its basic premise and its creative team and cast, but that's enough for us to be excited about its potential. We can't be sure if it has a "Lost Boys" vibe, but it seems more likely to use throwback vampire films as inspiration than, say, Netflix's most recent vampire horror movie "Blood Red Sky." Here's what we know so far about "Night Teeth," which production company 42 describes as "an electric, youth-driven thriller with a genre twist."

What is the release date for Night Teeth?

Currently, no specific release date is publicly scheduled for "Night Teeth," but it will be released in 2021. According to What's On Netflix, the film was supposed to shoot from February to April of last year, but production was halted partway through due to the pandemic. It resumed production in September 2020 and was reportedly filmed in New Orleans and Los Angeles.

"Night Teeth" is written by first-time screenwriter Brent Dillon and directed by Adam Randall, whose previous films include the 2019 Helen Hunt-led thriller "I See You" and the 2017 hidden superhero gem "iBoy" with Maisie Williams.

The production companies behind the film are 42 and Unique Features. 42 has already made several Netflix movies and shows, including this year's sci-fi action hit "Outside the Wire," the sci-fi crime thriller "In the Shadow of the Moon," and the animated limited series "Watership Down." Unique Features' production history includes Freeform's "Shadowhunters" and Netflix's visually innovative animated limited series "The Liberator."

Who is in the cast of Night Teeth?

"Night Teeth" has an impressive cast.

The cast, per Deadline, is led by Jorge Lendeborg Jr., who, since making his film debut in 2014, has appeared in supporting roles in blockbusters like "Spider-Man: Homecoming," "Spider-Man: Far From Home," "Bumblebee," and "Alita: Battle Angel." He's playing the chauffeur in "Night Teeth."

His passengers are played by Lucy Fry and Debby Ryan. Fry is known for her performances in "Bright," "11.22.63," and "Godfather of Harlem." She also notably played a vampire in the film "Vampire Academy." Ryan is best known for starring in the Disney Channel series "Jessie" and has since transitioned into adult roles. She starred in the controversial Netflix series "Insatiable" and appeared in the acclaimed indie drama "Horse Girl," also on Netflix.

Supporting roles, per Deadline, are filled by Alfie Allen, best known for playing Theon Greyjoy on "Game of Thrones"; "Vikings" star Alexander Ludwig; Raul Castillo, who's best known for the HBO series "Looking"; "Mad Men" scene-stealer Bryan Batt; and Marlene Forte, who's been in everything from "Altered Carbon" to "Knives Out." "Euphoria" and "The White Lotus" star Sydney Sweeney confirmed to Flaunt that she has a role in "Night Teeth" but didn't say more about who she's playing.

What is the plot of Night Teeth?

Here's the official description of "Night Teeth" from Netflix: "A young chauffeur picks up two mysterious women for a night of party-hopping across LA. But when his passengers reveal their true nature — and a dangerous underworld lurking in the shadows — he must fight to stay alive."

We know their "true nature" is that they're vampires because the Netflix landing page for "Night Teeth" is tagged "Vampire Horror Movies." Also, you know, vampires have night teeth. Deadline adds "This is a film about three young people stuck together for the night. Within the confines of this vehicle, it's the changing relationships; the suspicion, attraction and threat are all part of it."

So far, the only footage we've seen from "Night Teeth" is in Netflix's star-studded 2021 film preview video, which includes a brief shot of Fry and Ryan walking and exchanging a look that says they're up to no good.
