4.0 out of 5 stars Yep its Creepy 2 July 2013
By Trail Boss - Published on Amazon.com

There's nothing fancy about this movie. Just good old fashioned story telling. The Director had a unique way of filming that was very effective. I love horror movies where the creature doesn't fool around and there's nothing anyone can do about it. I thought I had the story figured out early but I was wrong and I'm not easily fooled. It had the atmosphere of a excellent stage play and its a story you'll not soon forget.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Horror Junkie's review: a slow pace, lead boots, and over/under acting killed this one 16 Feb. 2014
By Elizabeth Renee Blue - Published on Amazon.com
Well, the horror visual effects were very well done, so I'm sorry the acting and the pacing dragged it down. If the movie was a montage of that and cut out the "acting", I'd like it much better. Ugh! The mother needs acting lessons. She overacted and came off like a histrionic sometimes and yet wooden at others. How does that happen? The kid was one note all the way. The pacing was poor- the story moved like it had lead boots on. Few horror movies have conveyed such a lack of urgency. Ultimately, it bored me. The Tooth Fairy here has no teeth.

4.0 out of 5 stars The key word here is CREEPY. This movie was good, but the creepy atmosphere was excellent and lasts throughout! 24 Feb. 2014
By John's Horror Corner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This movie was good, but the key word here is creepy. Good old-fashioned creepy storytelling done well with an excellent creepy atmosphere.

Written and produced by rookie filmmakers, the long-short of it all is this: In this twisted take on the "tooth fairy" fairy tale, an Italian Malaria ghost wants her teeth back and she'll kill as many innocent people as it takes until one of them happens to randomly figure out why she's killing, what she wants and where to find it.

The story begins when young Helena notices her first loose tooth and inquires about the tooth fairy. Her mother Sophia, like any loving parent, humors her with an all too familiar story. But for the "horror" in this story to take root something must go wrong for Helena and her single mother.

This evil enters their lives after they get a cursed wardrobe with claw marks on the inside. Maybe it's just me and I'm just paranoid or superstitious, but upon seeing claw marks on the inside of a lockable "anything" I'd think twice about it. Like an imprisoning lamp to its genie, this wardrobe had--until now--kept an evil restless spirit at bay.

Following familiar formula, the young child in our story begins to act strangely. Helena buys teeth from her elementary school classmates in the schoolyard with curiously old coins which she couldn't possibly have stumbled across on her own. She also begins producing disturbing drawings.

From there some very creepy things happen, Helena begins talking to an "imaginary" friend, and there are some good scares along the way. Many scenes were VERY chilling.

There's a twist at the end. It was unnecessary; the movie was fine without it. But I had fun with it anyway and it added another dimension to the solid storytelling.

This is no must-see sensation, but it was done very well and it would be a worthy contribution to a dark and stormy night (alone or with a date, etc.). The ghost is presented with fine effects; our evil tooth fairy is creepy, disturbing and nuanced.

4.0 out of 5 stars WHEN TOOTH FAIRIES GO BAD 12 Sept. 2013
By The Movie Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Sophia (Harriet MacMasters-Green) separates from her husband (?) and lives with her daughter Helena (Sabrina Jolie Perez) in Italy, in a town with a strange history. They find an old wardrobe in the basement and move it into Helena's room. Sure enough the wardrobe is occupied by the tooth fairy who is obsessed about teeth as is now Helena. I am just glad my parents kept all my baby teeth for me in a jar.

Once mom figures things out, moving the wardrobe back into the basement doesn't seem to be an option as the piece is functional and makes the room. So she moves a piano in front of it. The haunting escalates. Mom attempts to unravel the history.

The film was done fairly well. I enjoyed the twist at the last ten minutes which should have come about half way through the film. I didn't find the film overly scary even if it displays some originality.

Makes for a good rental. I can't see owning it. Might be one for the eight year old kids on a sleep over.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity unless your John Ashcroft.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slow starter but excellent story. 14 Mar. 2014
By MM&M - Published on Amazon.com

This is one of those movies that 20 minutes into it you're thinking renting it was a mistake. If your patient and willing to settle for the "less than desirable" video quality, it's a good story and has a somewhat haunting ending. Well worth the price of a rental. If re-done with a big hollywood budget and a mid-level cast that stayed true to the original story even better.
