Darkness Falls (2003)
Chaney Kley, Emma Caulfield, Lee Cormie
Directed by Jonathan Liebesman
90 Min (?)
Grade C- (Rotten) (2)
Darkness Falls is the typical horror faire. It lacks in originality. The villain, Tooth Fairy, is laughable. It does provide some cheap thrills, and the actual appearance of the villain is very neat.

come on? an evil toothfairy? why cant anyone make a decent horror movie these days? :rotten:

This game kicks a*s! :fresh:

I used to like him. Now I cant stand him.

A guy returns to his hometown to protect people from the Tooth Fairy.

I love good horror movies or even ones that make me jump a lot, but in order for all of that to happen there has to be something left to the imagination. This movie didn't do any of that. I didn't jump once.

I was yelling at the screen and guessing what was going to happen the entire time, like when she went into the bathroom and got something out of the medicine cabinet. I yelled, "Someone is going to be in the reflection when you close the mirror." Shocker! There was someone there.

The tooth fairy's porcelin mask was too close to the Scream mask so it wasn't really frightening. We kept hoping someone would get chopped in half when the elevator got stuck halfway between two floors and of course dropped after that, but nope. This was no Final Destination movie.

I did giggle when all the random insignificant people didn't last two seconds on the screen, but it wasn't as funny as Final Destination and not as scary as any other horror movie I have ever seen. It wasn't truly horrible to warrant an F grade, but it was boring and not scary.
Nice of the folks in Darkness Falls to give their town that name so the shlock-meisters who created this tedious bomb could use the pun as the title of this descent into dreck.

I actually read reviews here from viewers who thought this laff-fest was "scary." These are the same folks recently heard exclaiming: "Oh, my God, was that a cloud in the sky? Ahhhhhh, run for your lives!!!!"

DF is not even worth a $3.00 DVD rental unless it comes with a paper bag full of mind- and mood-altering chemicals. There is not a genuine scare in the whole mess (unless you are a 3-year-old who is scared by loud noises, people shouting inane dialogue, or flashes of light). The most you get out of the plot and action is a sad smile and a shake of the head.

This stinkeroo hardly deserves anymore of the Knight's, time and effort, but there are two things that particularly irked me that I have to get off my chest:
Exposition is clumsily handled with voice-over narration at the beginnning. No attempt to add some mystery to the proceedings and reveal clues along the way. The writers obviously knew thay had a terrible story, so, like, "why bother"?The "horror" begins when children lose their last baby teeth. (No, I am not making this up!) But judging by the apparent age of the kid characters in this mish-mosh, kids lose those last baby teeth anywhere from the age of about 6 to age 14 or so. I'm no dentist, but I don't think the age range is all that wide. Oh well, asking for consistency in this screenplay is like pulling...OK, wheh, just stopped myself before another terrible pun(Viewed on DVD)
This move flat out sucked! I like the fact that at least one critic said this movie was scarier than "The Ring". What a joke! A) "The Ring" wasn't even scary to begin with, B) This movie is not scary AT ALL . It follows every current horror movie pattern -- use special effects (in any way possible), telegraph every scary event, have the characters run from the ghost/murderer/spirit/legend/whatever for 2 hours, and end with the ghost/murderer/spirit/legend/whatever be destroyed in the stupidest way possible!

Seriously...why do all movies use horrible special effects? Is there absolutely no creativity? I mean you tell me which is scarier..."The Shining" or "I Know What You Did Last Summer"? Give me a break. Do yourself a favor...If you were planning to see this movie; don't. Instead, rent something lo-fi from the 70's or even the 80's and you'll be much more scared. Unless of course you're in the mood to make fun of an absolutely crappy movie. Then by all means, you should rent this...In fact, that's the only reason I gave it a "1" rating. At least you can watch this movie and laugh at how ridiculously idiotic it is. I figure that's worth something...

losing a whole day

you ever had a day slip by you unnoticed or time fly by so fast that you lose all sense of time and date? warp speed. our ship has speed ahead 23 hours. we skipped a day. an important day, to which without that day then sunday wouldn't be a holiday routen (our day off). we had maybe 5 hours of saturday, but yet, i still had to stand the sat-sunday midnight to 4am watch. see this vital time frame? without this time frame, sunday (today) would've been a cake day.

It has some great chills in the beginning, but by the end it just becomes flat. Nothing is explained and no real story is apparant other than the little intro. That is what happens when your movie is 73 min long.

One truly scary scene - the opening one.

The rest - crap. Watchable crap, but still crap.
