1-The DVD cover is pretty good, looks scary.
2-The liner notes in the back make it look like a good horror film.
3-No name actors, which is great for a mainstream horror film because you never know who might die next.( besides the main actor and actress)
4-It's about a killer tooth fairy, pretty original idea.
5-I liked the special features especially the documentary on the real-life tooth fairy in that small town who gets killed and supposed to have put a curse on the people who live there.
6-And finally the trailer..looked promising, but decided to watch on Dvd when it came out.
So i guess we all know the outcome of what happened when i actually finished watching this film.
***TAKE IT FROM ME AND 95% OF THE OTHER REVIEWERS..DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME LIKE WE DID***
year's entry in the genre,They,but with a few differences.One,Darkness
Falls has a fairly well fleshed out back story.Two,the acting is
generally fairly good.three,the monster has a reason for being,a
motivation for its actions.also,the monster has a weakness,which can be
exploited.the core storyline is descent for this genre.the movie is
better paced and much better edited.the monster itself is however,not
so great.the look of the creature isn't the problem.the problem are its
movements,which do not look authentic in some scenes.now,the characters
themselves--very little in the form of character development.pretty
much your stock horror characters.none too bright and reacting in ways
which real people(hopefully)would not.yet,strangely likable somehow.you
kind of take pity on them.suspense--there were some tense moments.there
was a fair amount of action.however,at times the film became
chaotic--lots of sounds and sights all at once,including the music.the
only reason i can see for this to fool the viewer into thinking there
is more going on,than there really is,while hiding the movie's
shortcomings.and now the ending.it does nicely resolve things.no cheap
setup for a sequel here. i think it's a better movie than They,but not
as good as Boogeyman .it has a few tense moments with a few decent
action sequences and a decent,straightforward ending without the usual
'unexpected'(but really expected))twist.my rating for Darkness Falls is
Well, getting into the meat of the movie, if there is any. Let us take a look at the corny plot, which consists of a young boy and a young girl being in love since childhood. The boy was hauled off for the murder of his mother, which, if you didn't see this coming, he didn't commit. Flash-forward to the "present time" and presto, her younger brother seems to have the same crap as he had when he was younger, night terrors. Well somehow she gets a hold of her middle school crush who, mind you, lives in an apartment that is full of lights, I mean there are no shadows here baby. Well to make this review shorter, they go after a cheesy looking puppet. **SPOILER** (If you really care). Well, you may have been able to guess this one, the two end up killing the thing in the end and get back together. Yay...Right.
The one good effect this movie did have was the flashbacks or flashes of the "Toothfairy". Another good point was the background story in the beginning, I actually thought this had potential when that began.
One minor fault is where the hell are the boys parents. Not once do we see them, and I imagine any parent who child is seeing ugly women in the dark would be right by their side.
Can I mention another great part in this movie, the song that plays during the ending credits.
All in all this film will not cause you to have a sleepless night, unless your one that has just lost your last tooth...
And remember don't peek...
Somehow I never got round to reviewing this. Which is okay, because everyone's already said everything I have to say about it, but hey.
This movie is probably going to end a lot of careers before they begin, and could have deleterious effects on a few others. I watched it (well, because I like bad horror movies) mostly because Emma Caulfield is hot and I could never stand enough of Buffy the Vampire Slayer to get a good enough fix. This ain't much better, but at least I could sit through it.
The Tooth Fairy (Antony Burrows in his big-screen debut, also a stuntman for the lead actor: what a surprise, a stuntman playing a monster) is a ghost who's been exceptionally pissed at a small town for a hundred fifty years. Every time a child loses his first tooth, he's visited by the tooth fairy, and if he's not asleep... well, trauma. Or the brutal and bloody murder of one's parents which then gets pinned on the kid, as happened to Kyle Walsh (Legally Blonde's Chaney Kley). Kyle, not surprisingly, split town after that for a while. No one believes in the Tooth Fairy (of course), and they all think Kyle's nuts (of course), but he comes back to town to save the son of his high school sweetheart, Caitlin (Caulfield). He's being stalked by the Tooth Fairy, as well.
First, just to get this out of the way: enough with the new age psychology crap already. Oh, boy, childhood trauma. Yeah, that hasn't been horribly overdone. (No one uses the words "inner child," but they're written all over Kley's face throughout. Try not to puke.)
Second, pretty much everything bad you can say about this movie, well, you can say. The acting is hideous, the pace is off, the jumps out of your seat feel more like you settling your butt deeper into the chair.Read more ›
