Trivia

Due to an extremely low budget spent on buying teeth, the tooth fairy was actually a human woman disguised as a fairy, since hiring a real fairy would've maxed out the films budget. See more »

Goofs

In the beginning of the movie Helena already has very well developed adult incisors. Later, her mother acts like it's the first baby tooth that's coming out. See more »

User Reviews

 
A horror committing suicide.
20 January 2013 | by gothic-fictionSee all my reviews

This movie simply started...GREAT! I loved it, it seemed a bit rushed, but dunno, maybe it wanted a new approach, trying to get us into the story faster so it can offer chilling thrills and stuff...but NO.

Started nicely to get our attention and then, what goes up, must come down. It sucked, it really sucked, I mean dear God, how can a movie just kill itself like that? The acting was getting worse by the minute, the uber cool "twist" already explaining itself to us, and the killings made pretty much no sense to be honest. Ofc, one might say (as i did when the time came), "this ending is the only one that could save the movie a little", but still, I mean you see it coming a mile away so dunno about you, but i for one, felt bored as heck from min 20 i think.

Therefore, I should recommend "Darkness falls", "Sinister", "Dead silence", if you want to watch a horror with a tooth fairy/a haunted house/ a too good of a twist. All in all, i say avoid this one, not much to see, i mean seriously, the camera work, dialogues, acting, logic...bad...so BAD. And now consider yourself warned! Have fun!
