Movie Info

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. Chuck Bowman (A Kiss So Deadly) directs, from a teleplay co-authored by Cannell and Corey Strode.

One Guy's Opinion

Like just about every other direct-to-DVD splatter film released from Anchor Bay, this represents the bottom of the barrel for creativity.

Audience Reviews for The Tooth Fairy

½

A slasher movie twisting the friendly Tooth Fairy into a wretched "witch" who steals the teeth and souls of children. If you find that concept exciting, you will enjoy this much more than I did. The "witch" carries a hatchet and dismembers adults and children alike. The blood/gore is fairly high in this one. The story is ridiculous, the acting is merely standard, and the direction is choppy and misguided. If you are going to call her a witch, give her supernatural powers or occult ties, not a hatchet and penchant for blood-letting.

Not too bad of a movie. I thought when Bobby went through the wood chipper was a little cliché. Overall it had a good story. The ghost children was a nice touch.

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.
