'The Tooth Fairy'
(Lochlyn Munro, Chandra West, et al / DVD / R / 2006 / Anchor Bay Ent.)

Overview: When 12-year-old Pamela (Munoz) goes on vacation with her family (West, Munro) to a bed and breakfast, the girl who lives next door tells her the "true story" of the Tooth Fairy: Many years earlier, the evil Tooth Fairy slaughtered a countless number of children to take their teeth, and now she has returned to kill Pamela and anyone else who gets in her way.

DVD Verdict: I give the writer a lot of credit for doing this kind of film, I haven't seen Darkness Falls yet but I got this movie from the production company the day they released it. I might of bought it if I had some money, but for a direct to video release for a horror film -- it isn't too shabby. My room mates and I were watching this one last night the moment it came in. I do a lot of work for the company that actually released it, so I will say they did a strong job with the effects of the supernatural -- it isn't every day where you have child characters who are slain in a horror film so this story breaks that taboo. Plus there are some rather graphic scenes in there that I won't mention here because they are too gruesome. Stephen J. Cannell is a writer that isn't too known with the horror genre as far as horror films go, but he's better known for doing the series The A-Team so with this film you're going to see a lot of the minor actors from different horror films and from many Science Fiction televison shows as the main characters in this film. So with that I give a tip of the hat to Cannell for doing a horror film that's got a lot of balls behind it, no pun intended there. It is one of the most shocking works of horror I've seen in a long time, but it is must have for those who want films that are heavy in nature. I have to imagine this horror film as a novel because it more of the scenes might be more horrifying on paper. The deaths in the film are really creative and for them to open everything up with a kid death, it makes it all insane. I recommend this for anyone whose read Macey's novel, Sacrifice, or Terry Vinson's work in print. The movie if given a bigger budget, will be one of those everyone will remember. I will remember this one for many years, but wish something like this was done when I was younger. It shows a lot of tenacity and the scenes where the witch moves really fast, I won't give away the details in that one but it has a lot of nice featurettes included with it. As a horror writer and a fan of horror, I can appreciate this kind of film. It is a great film to watch with a group of friends who have weak stomachs, order a pizza and watch them puke it up while you're smiling and have a straight face.
