'Darkness Falls'
(Chaney Kley, Emma Caulfield / PG-13 / 75 mins / Columbia)

Overview: Kyle (Chaney Kley) returns to his hometown to help save his childhood sweetheart's (Emma Caulfield) little brother who is suffering from the same kind of horrible hallucinations he endured as a kid. The boy may be haunted by the ghost of Matilda Dixon, the original, kindly Tooth Fairy, who was wrongly hanged by an angry mob in the town of Darkness Falls 150 years ago, and has come back seeking vengeance.

Verdict:’Darkness Falls’ is a lame-brained attempt at horror that is just a derivative pastiche of ideas lifted from other bad films and where there's absolutely zero plot, instead of well-crafted suspense we get cheap, and highly predictable scares! And whilst meeting the standards of any and all assembly-line horror movies, its plot makes decreasing sense even by the low standards of B horror flicks! ’Darkness Falls’ is painfully slow to get going and is about as scary as a ride on a minor roller coaster on a wet Wednesday afternoon !
