By Lawrance M. Bernabo HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Early on in "Hatchet Job: The Making of The Tooth Fairy" featurette on this DVD the actress who plays the titular character in human form comments that this movie is not for little kids. I mention this because at one point in this direct to video 2006 horror film I was actually thinking that the best explanation for what was happening was that this was indeed a horror movie made for little kids. But that was before the combination decapitation (male) and topless (female) scene, which made it clear that they really were not making "Baby's First Horror Film," even if the ending is as family oriented as any horror film I have ever seen.

We begin back in 1949 in Northern California when Elizabeth Craven (Karin Konoval), a disfigured witch, developed the nasty habit of killing young children after they had lost their last baby tooth. Then we jump to the present, where young Pamela (Nicole Munoz) and her mother Darcy Wagner (Chandra West) are spending the weekend at the newly opened bed & breakfast of Peter Campbell (Lochlyn Munro). Of course the B&B used to be Elizabeth Craven's creepy old house and guess what happens to Pamela when she falls down and bangs her face? You get the general idea, which is really all you are going to get because it was never clear to me why killing kids after taking their last baby teeth was so important to the old witch. Pamela makes friends with Emma (Jianna Ballard), who is obviously a ghost. This matters because since Pamela is the only real kid around the Tooth Fairy is going to have to start taking out the adults at the B&B (which includes a brief appearance by P.J. Soles from "Halloween").

2.0 out of 5 stars not your Father's tooth fairy Dec 15 2007
By falcon
Format:DVD
this movie is similar to Darkness Falls,and The Boogeyman(2005)but it's
also much more graphic than both,and not as good as either.it's also
slow and fairly predictable.it's also got shades of Deliverance and the
Amityville Horror.plus,we get some new age flavour thrown in the mix
and for me,some of those scenes come off as a
motivational/inspirational sermon.really,this movie is a hodgepodge of
almost everything.even though it is gory,the makeup effects are not
very realistic looking.in fact they look kinda cheap.aside from all
that,there is some really awful clichéd dialogue.and i won't say
when,but there is a point where a couple of the character's actions
were not authentic or believable,given the circumstances.nobody in
their right mind what would have acted this way.once you watch the
movie,you'll know what i mean.there's also some gratuitous nudity for
nudity's sake.it just wasn't necessary at all.the good news is that the
acting was actually pretty good.better than this movie
deserves.so,after carefully weighing the evidence,id say this movie was
passable,but not good.my verdict for The Tooth fairy:2/5

3.0 out of 5 stars The first 87 minutes is 2 stars & the last minute earns 1 more June 2 2007
By Music Lover in Omaha - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Whew. Where to start? I rented this for one reason only. I like Clare Kramer, and true to form, was not disapointed as she again gives a good performance. The film however is sex and gore and gore and sex. Yes I know it's rated 'R' and what was I suppose to expect? Okay, I can live with the topless pair of vampire girls who garble out some kind of speech as they run around seemingly aimlessly just causing mayhem and the gore, though excessive really didn't seem out of place considering the setting. Within all this depravity enters Lisa (Clare Kramer) who becomes the vampire with the heart of gold. Even though it's not beating, it's still a heart of gold. The depiction of vampirism as a drug type addiction was pretty cool and the spectacle of a couple vampires trying to kick the habit was my second favorite part of the film. My favorite part was the ending. After all the sex, after all the gore and the chase and the slaughter, this film ends with a tender finale that renews one's faith in the goodness of mankind. Awwww, wasn't that just so sweet? I don't think I would watch this again, but it was worth a one time viewing. Bottom line: If you're thinking about buying it, rent it first. You might love it. Then again you might just change your mind about buying it. By the way, it says that Ellie Cornell is in the cast. I love Ellie Cornell too, but I didn't see her. If I did I didn't recognize her. Oh well.

2.0 out of 5 stars Blood Addiction. May 27 2007
By That Review Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Oh Lord..

I love Vampire movies, and this kinda delivers. more like near dark though and that was just ok admittedly far superior acting to this train wreck of a film. but the Idea of a pair of drug addicts becoming vampires, and then becoming addicted (following addictive behavior patterns) to Blood! its just sad that the execution of such a great idea was so poor. and I truly love vampire films, even most of the B style vamp flicks but this? My Personal Recommendation is: if you Must see this film RENT ONLY 2 star and thats being generous because of the blood addiction idea. and some funny gore (gore being funny here is bad trust me) Avoid...

3.0 out of 5 stars Rethinking the whole put the baby tooth under the pillow tradition April 29 2007
By Lawrance M. Bernabo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Early on in "Hatchet Job: The Making of The Tooth Fairy" featurette on this DVD the actress who plays the titular character in human form comments that this movie is not for little kids. I mention this because at one point in this direct to video 2006 horror film I was actually thinking that the best explanation for what was happening was that this was indeed a horror movie made for little kids. But that was before the combination decapitation (male) and topless (female) scene, which made it clear that they really were not making "Baby's First Horror Film," even if the ending is as family oriented as any horror film I have ever seen.

We begin back in 1949 in Northern California when Elizabeth Craven (Karin Konoval), a disfigured witch, developed the nasty habit of killing young children after they had lost their last baby tooth. Then we jump to the present, where young Pamela (Nicole Munoz) and her mother Darcy Wagner (Chandra West) are spending the weekend at the newly opened bed & breakfast of Peter Campbell (Lochlyn Munro). Of course the B&B used to be Elizabeth Craven's creepy old house and guess what happens to Pamela when she falls down and bangs her face? You get the general idea, which is really all you are going to get because it was never clear to me why killing kids after taking their last baby teeth was so important to the old witch. Pamela makes friends with Emma (Jianna Ballard), who is obviously a ghost. This matters because since Pamela is the only real kid around the Tooth Fairy is going to have to start taking out the adults at the B&B (which includes a brief appearance by P.J. Soles from "Halloween"). When the Tooth Fairy kills her first victim I did not understand why she was doing it, but then I realized the motivation was essentially the same for the killing as it was for the choice of the method, a woodchipper: because it was there.

While I did not know anything about "The Tooth Fairy" when I put in the DVD to watch, my expectation was that it would not be like "Silent Night Deadly Night," where a maniac pretends to be a fictional character beloved by children. Indeed, this is more of a supernatural tale that essentially reveals the twisted truth about the kindly tooth fairy who gives kids money for their baby teeth. In folklore the Tooth Fairy is traced back to European stories of elves and brownies who would do helpful tasks or trade treasures for items humans considered useless. But there are also superstitions about how discarded body parts such as teeth or hair could be used for black magic, and this is the approach taken in "The Tooth Fairy" (I have to admit I was hoping for more of an evil elf, like when Anya reveals the myth about Santa Claus being a myth on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"). However, while that was the approach and while there are the ghosts of dead children running around to lend pathos of the proceedings, in the end "The Tooth Fairy" is a basic splatter flick with an old fashioned hatchet as the weapon of choice.

I just did not connect with this hybrid supernatural slasher flick with the little girl as the heroine, even though individually those elements are okay (I was less impressed by Chuck and Henry, the "Deliverance"-type tag-team at the local gas station). You know, if "The Tooth Fairy" had come out in the heyday of the slasher film would have seemed a lot better than it does against the current crop of gore fests, so you will either tolerate it or hate it. In addition to the aforementioned featurette in terms of extras on the DVD there is another promotional quickie and then "Loose Tooth," the audio commentary with director Chuck Bowman, producer Stephen J. Cannell, and actor Jessie Hutch. Note: "The Tooth Fairy" is not to be confused with "Tooth Fairy," a 2004 Amazon Theater short with Chris Noth that featured Jeff Bezos as a security guard.

Final Note: This was the movie where I first looked at the Plot Keywords for the film at the International Movie Data Base. The top ten keywords for this movie were: (1) woodchipper, (2) topless, (3) mulching a person, (4) tooth fairy, (5) tooth extraction, (6), slasher, (7) redneck, (8) nail gun, (9) haunted house, and (10) gore. I wanted to make a point about the relative inaccuracy of this particular list (the hatchet is way more prominent than the woodchipper even if not as memorable and the topless scene is done to set up a joke and not to provide titillation), but I quickly became distracted by the fact that you can click on a keyword and actually come up with the top movies on the IMDB for each category. "The Tooth Fairy" comes in 16th of 17 films featuring "tooth extraction" ("Schindler's List" and "Finding Nemo" are one and two because the movies are organized by their IMDB ratings), but 7th of 10 films on the "woodchipper" list ("Fargo" is only #3, although "The Tooth Fairy" did finish ahead of "Woodchipper Massacre"). This particular feature is going to be a constant source of amusement for me for some time to come.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good for what it is Jan. 6 2007
By N. Durham - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The Tooth Fairy is one of the recent straight to DVD films from Anchor Bay, but unlike the previous movies (Room 6, It Waits) the Tooth Fairy is a surprisingly good, and surprisingly bloody, horror film that for most of it's running time is a real blast. Lochlyn Munro and Chandra West (who still looks great) play a couple who move into an old house, only to find themselves and their young daughter (Nicole Muñoz) terrorized by a demonic version of the fabled fairy that brings you money for your baby teeth. Loaded with some grisly gore effects that are plenty shocking, the Tooth Fairy manages to be riveting, and offers up enough surprises, blood, and nudity to keep you interested. Sometimes the dialogue is a little grating, but for the most part the Tooth Fairy manages to entertain, and is surprisingly good. And oh yeah, it's much better than Darkness Falls could have ever hoped to be. Also featuring original Halloween star and Rob Zombie favorite PJ Soles in what amounts to be pretty much a throwaway role.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as horrible as it seems, but nothing special either Nov. 20 2008
By N. Durham - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
As The Thirst starts up, it wouldn't come to a surprise if one were to think this is an absolutely horrible flick just by watching the first few minutes. Between some horrid acting and just some generally confusing plot elements, it is easy to think this. Still, there's something about The Thirst that keeps you watching, and there's some depraved fun to be had as well, even though that doesn't last quite long. Matt Keeslar (Masters of Horror: Family) and Clare Kramer (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) star as a couple who are recovering addicts, and both get drawn to a vampire clan led by accent-changing Darius (Jeremy Sisto). It isn't long before blood starts gushing like water, and the two face a new addiction while they begin to rebel against their new "family". While there is a great amount of blood, gore, and nasty moments, The Thist doesn't offer a whole lot. There are many times when its small budget becomes too aparrent, and many of the action and effects sequences don't help things either. Even the supporting cast, which includes Serena Scott Thomas, Tom Lenk (another Buffy vet), Neil Jackson (Blade: The Series), and the great Adam Baldwin come off as not being too interested in what's going on. Still, there's enough bloody and nasty moments to hold your attention, and for that alone, The Thirst is worth a look for vampire flick fans.
