As maestro TV producer Stephen J. Cannell's latest foray into feature work, The Tooth Fairy represents the latest direct-to-video entry in an unofficial series of slasher films that resurrect friendly characters in a horrific vein -- from the 1997 Jack Frost to the 2005 Gingerdead Man. This particular outing begins with the legend of a woman known as "The Tooth Fairy," who lures unsuspecting children to her home with promises of gifts in exchange for their lost teeth, and then butchers them. The film implies, at its outset, that the homicidal slayer is long gone -- and that her home is being converted to a cozy bed and breakfast. Everyone believes the story -- until a young girl and her mother check into the inn. The child happens to be on the verge of losing a tooth, and all hell breaks loose.

Critic Reviews for The Tooth Fairy
The screenplay is hilariously awful, with such howl-inducing lines as, 'Life isn't a Harry Potter novel,' and 'What kind of whack job takes a Hyundai?'
The gore scenes deliver in spades, and I give a lot of credit to the filmmakers for keeping the monster away from making stupid jokes as it kills people.
Audience Reviews for The Tooth Fairy
The acting sucks but I think that's down to the director more than the cast. It's just so insipid.More
This is a very disturbing movie. The opening scene I thought was just a little too much...and the part where she chops off his penis was a little too much too. The blood\gore is very common in this movie, especially from the children. There are very bloody\graphic\painfu parts in this film, but it is a very good movie and has a very creepy\eerie story.More
