One day, her face is burnt in a fire in her house, she becomes sensitive to light and uses a china mask to protect her face against light. When two children are not found in the town, Matilda is blamed by the population and burnt in a fire, as if she were a witch. She claims to be not guilty and curses the whole population of the town and their descendants, stating that when each child loses the last tooth, she would come to get it, and if the child looks at her, she would kill him or her.

The closing credits run for 11 minutes. This is because without the extra time, the movie would have been considered too short to release theatrically. See more »

It is said that over 150 years ago, in the town of Darkness Falls, Matilda Dixon was adored by all the children. Whenever they would lose a tooth they would bring it to her in exchange for a gold coin, earning her the name, the Toothfairy. But fate was not kind to Matilda. One night fire tore through her home leaving her face horribly scarred.

I'm keeping this one short. Darkness Falls is way too predictable, boring, and lackluster in every way. I enjoyed the intro, mildly, and at least the Tooth Fairly "sounded" scary. That's where the good news ends and the bad news begins. No actors stand out, no scene stands out, and the monster really doesn't stand out. This movie seriously sucked. I didn't like any of the cardboard characters and couldn't care one way or the other if they died tomorrow or lived forever. Everything that took place was just far too convenient. The electricity goes out, the batteries in the flashlight die, the generator runs out of kerosene, and, oh my god, here comes the Tooth Fairy. Oh, and the line "Stay in the light." is said about 30 times too many. I could go on but I'll spare you. Here's a quote from the box: "For sheer terror, it runs rings around The Ring." Hahaha!!! How much were you paid to say that? This film was not needed and I beg the company not to put out a sequel.
