Editorial Reviews

As a young boy, Kyle (Chaney Kley) claimed to have seen the tooth fairy. He also claimed she tried to kill him. Now over twelve years later, Kyle has left the town that never believed him. He has also left behind the two people who thought he was telling the truth, his childhood girlfriend Caitlin (Emma Caulfield) and her younger brother. And when evil again emerges in Darkness Falls, Kyle must return to do battle with the winged creature of doom he saw that night so many years ago. Because evil is back with a vengeance. And it's not leaving without Caitlin's brother.

Everyone thinks Darkness Falls sucks, giving it 2 or less stars. But come on people! It's not that scary, but it's spooky. It makes you kind of paranoid if you just watched it at night. It's quickly become my favorite horror movie, and it's unfair that people won't give it a chance. The actors and actresses are the best of the best, and it definately is worth seeing and buying. Don't listen to the pessimists. It's better than I thought!

As a young boy, Kyle Walsh saw something no one is supposed to see...and live. Less fortunate was Kyle's mother, murdered in a night of raving terror from which Kyle has never recovered even twelve years later. Now he's coming home to Darkness Falls, to confront his childhood fear, and save his beloved Caitlin and her younger brother from a nightmarish doom...

Though it got off to a good start at the box office in 2003, DARKNESS FALLS quickly floundered and is not widely appreciated by many horror fans. Despite its decidedly mixed reviews from fans and critics alike, DARKNESS FALLS won me over the first time I saw it and it continues to entertain today.

Exploring both humanity's general fear of the dark as well as the theme of childhood trauma that can shape one's life forever, DARKNESS FALLS is a fast-moving supernatural thriller that scores high marks for an original concept, interesting monster, empathetic characters, and atmospheric suspense. Chaney Kley captures all of Kyle's angst and obsessiveness perfectly, and Emma Caulfield is appealing as Kyle's childhood sweetheart Caitlin, caught up in a nightmare from which she cannot awake. Children in peril are often a bust in scary movies, but Lee Cormie is excellent in his role as the benighted Michael and provides a highly believable catalyst to bring Kyle and Caitlin back together. The monster is scary and realistic, another knockout job from Stan Winston Studio, and turning the Tooth Fairy legend on its darkside makes for an ingenious and decidedly wicked new bogeyman.

One reason DARKNESS FALLS disappointed at the box office is that it is, after all, a PG-13 film in a genre in which a very hard "R" rating is par for the course.

DARKNESS FALLS is, in my opinion, one of the scariest, most original horror films in years and it will end up becoming one of my guilty peasurres. It is perfet to watch on a dark and stormy night and you won't want to stay in complete darkness anymore. See it, it's very good and do not believe the criticts. they're just rating it badly because they are all comparing it to THE RING, and even though this was excellent, it is no match for THE RING.

Shunned by many critics and worthless to some audiences, I found Darkness Falls to be entertaining and at the same time very engrossing and well done. Director Jonathan Liebesman did a fine job of putting together this film. The actors, Chaney Kley and Emma Caulfield, did a great job acting out their parts in this film and accomplished in making them believeable. The Tooth Fairy's story and past was well described in the beginning of the film and her appearences were something to look forward to throughout the entire film.
The DVD is also very well done. The picture is extremely clear and fully detailed. The sound is nice and pleasing to the ear. The special features are also good. They include: filmmakers commentaries, The Legend of Matilda Dixon, The Making of Darkness Falls, deleted scenes, storyboard comparisons, widescreen and fullscreen presentations, and more. Over this DVD is well done and well thought out. This film is rated PG-13 for terror and horror images, and brief language. It is approximately 86 minutes long.

As a young boy, Kyle puts his last tooth under his pillow and is told by his friend not to peek at the tooth fairy. Awaking from a nightmare, he jumps up and sees shadows moving across the wall. When he pulls the covers down he sees a face covered with a porcelin mask and he runs into the bathroom. His mother then comes out of her bedroom to see what the noise is about. As she ventures into her sons room when the son is begging her not to, she sees nothing wrong. Then sees is attacked by the figure and the boy runs and jumps into the tub to hide. That morning the police come and take Kyle away.
Now over twelve years later, Kyle has left the town that never believed him.

Format: DVD
In "Darkness Falls" the monster in the dark that is coming to get you is the tooth fairy. What you basically have here is a cross between the wrong person being killed a long time ago from "The Blair Witch Project," the creature that only comes out under certain circumstances from the "Nightmare on Elm Street" movies, and the white mask from the "Halloween" movies. Now, what made the first Freddy Kreuger movie work was that there were these clear cut rules that actually came into play with the climax of the film. But in "Darkness Falls" the rules really do not explain what is happening on screen and the gross violations kill any momentum that the story might be generating.
Because the town lynched an innocent woman she takes her revenge by coming after kids when they lose the last of their baby teeth. But she only comes after you if you take a peek and look at her when she comes at night, because otherwise the town of Darkness Falls would have nothing but pre-teens and adults who moved into town. At the beginning of the film she comes for young Kyle Walsh (Joshua Anderson) who had just lost his last tooth, but gets his mother instead. Kyle is institutionalized because it is assumed that he killed his mother, despite the lack of forensic evidence to support the idea, but also because he is now afraid of the dark. But little Caitlin Greene (Emily Browning) believes in Kyle and their paths cross several years later.
Now the problem is Michael (Lee Cormie), the young brother of Caitlin (Emma Caulfield), who can only sleep for about ten minutes at a time because he has been totally afraid of the dark for three weeks.
