DARKNESS FALLS
 
The thing about this film is that it had a wonderfully great idea; this could have been a classic. Unfortunately for viewers the filmmakers didn't execute it right; I guess we have to take what we get. With that being said 2 exec. Producers, 3 writers, 4 producers, & 1 director later we have this attempt at a mainstream film. Not to say it doesn't have its moments. I was very pleased with the beginning when the kid peeks and sees her eye that was great. Also to see the mother killed was a surprise, usually in these films the parents check it out, nothing there and the kid looks stupid. Ah but not here, she is executed. Another nice moment is when the Tooth Fairy glides through the trees right before she kills the dumb drunk guy in the woods who was picking a fight with Kyle.

Speaking of Kyle, Chaney Kley {who sounds like JASON LEE} gives an alright performance in a roll that didn't give him too much to do. The same cannot be said for Emma Caulfield who to me didn't make the performance believable. Everyone else in the film does what they can with the script; some of the side performances are good. It's also cool to see the tooth fairy snatch people out of nowhere. Like when they are jumping down the stairs and she grabs the nurse. One thing I didn't get is why Kyle would come back to see the kid for Caitlin, the film tries to say they are romantically linked {Kyle talking to Larry in the car} but that never happens.

As far as the creature goes Stan Winston Studio did an excellent job with the tooth fairy. The long black cloak and the white mask were great. Everything else is well, just average. I recommend renting the film first, if u like it buy it at a pawn shop or something cheap.

The un-scariest movie I have ever seen! It's about the tooth fairy! It's a bad movie about a stupid story involving the tooth fairy. Seriously, who is afraid of the tooth fairy?!! This is worse than "Boogeyman".

"Darkness Falls" is the type of movie that flies in under the radar and hits you with some nice surprises. It's kinda spooky, kinda scary and kinda silly all at once. First of all, it relies on the fact that we all know about the tooth fairy. Then it takes that fact, whips it into a frenzy and turns the sweet ol' tooth fairy into one wicked you know what. The story falls before you like an old fashioned horror flick that relies more on camera angles, suspenseful music and the "potential" for danger. …

Just a dreadful movie in virtually every conceivable way.The setup: Many years ago, in the town of Darkness Falls (yeah, right, a town is going to name itself THAT!!!), a rich, kindly elderly woman gave money to children who came to her with their missing teeth...earned nickname "Tooth Fairy." Later, woman is horribly disfigured in a fire, and is seldom seen, and if she is, she's wearing a porcelain mask. When some kids go missing, the Tooth Fairy is blamed and promptly lynched by the town, who, …

About this movie

Wiki

Humanity's fear of the dark providesDarkness Fallswith some anxiety and fuels some jolts of fear from things popping out of nowhere. A kindly woman, who used to give children gold coins in exchange for their lost baby teeth, was hanged for a murder she didn't commit; in her last moments she laid a curse on the town (which has the unlikely name of Darkness Falls). So over the years the ghost of this woman has murdered various children because they saw her when she came to collect their teeth. In the present day, a boy who evaded her clutches returns to town as an adult in order to help the young brother of his childhood sweetheart--and from there this incoherent, inane movie is one long chase sequence without a glimmer of imagination or intelligence.--Bret Fetzer
