It doesn't offer anything new to the genre, but chugs along pretty well until the plot holes begin to pile up.

This update of the Tooth Fairy legend takes the familiar and tries to make it terrifying but horrendous dialogue and weak performances will aggravate even the most forgiving horror fans.

Yet another ghost story that insists there's nothing more chilling than a professional woman charged with raising a child on her own.

Audience Reviews for The Haunting of Helena


A brutal opening and truly creepy ghost unfortunately are the only objects of interest in The Haunting of Helena, a ghost story with promise that is squandered. The few genuinely nightmarish moments cannot bolster the rest of the film which tends to drag and fizzle instead of build towards a rewarding climax.


How bout haunting of Helena's teeth? why just haunting of Helena? Movie is sort of like the ring. Don't help the crazy tooth fairy ghost!

was watching this on a live stream. got about 30 mins into it, but i just couldn't take it seriously.
