This movie was good, but the key word here is creepy. Good old-fashioned creepy storytelling done well with an excellent creepy atmosphere.

Written and produced by rookie filmmakers, the long-short of it all is this: In this twisted take on the "tooth fairy" fairy tale, an Italian Malaria ghost wants her teeth back and she'll kill as many innocent people as it takes until one of them happens to randomly figure out why she's killing, what she wants and where to find it.

The story begins when young Helena notices her first loose tooth and inquires about the tooth fairy. Her mother Sophia, like any loving parent, humors her with an all too familiar story. But for the "horror" in this story to take root something must go wrong for Helena and her single mother.

This evil enters their lives after they get a cursed wardrobe with claw marks on the inside. Maybe it's just me and I'm just paranoid or superstitious, but upon seeing claw marks on the inside of a lockable "anything" I'd think twice about it. Like an imprisoning lamp to its genie, this wardrobe had--until now--kept an evil restless spirit at bay.

Following familiar formula, the young child in our story begins to act strangely. Helena buys teeth from her elementary school classmates in the schoolyard with curiously old coins which she couldn't possibly have stumbled across on her own. She also begins producing disturbing drawings.

From there some very creepy things happen, Helena begins talking to an "imaginary" friend, and there are some good scares along the way. Many scenes were VERY chilling.

There's a twist at the end. It was unnecessary; the movie was fine without it. But I had fun with it anyway and it added another dimension to the solid storytelling.

This is no must-see sensation, but it was done very well and it would be a worthy contribution to a dark and stormy night (alone or with a date, etc.). The ghost is presented with fine effects; our evil tooth fairy is creepy, disturbing and nuanced.

It's just okay. Better than some but then, not as good as others. If you like this one you should check out "Lights out". It's a much better version of the same kind of ghost I think.

5 stars no less. This is not a good fairy . So don't expect a happy story.

This is one of those movies that 20 minutes into it you're thinking renting it was a mistake. If your patient and willing to settle for the "less than desirable" video quality, it's a good story and has a somewhat haunting ending. Well worth the price of a rental. If re-done with a big hollywood budget and a mid-level cast that stayed true to the original story even better.

A decent paranormal movie that could have stood to have about 30 minutes cut from the running time. There were quite a few portions that felt very repetitive and unnecessary to the story. It felt like they were stretching to fit a running time. The overall story is good, the mood is well established and it was overall an enjoyable movie.

It was okay. Nothing exceptionally frightening.

The plot here is rather like the terrible tooth fairy beast merges with a battered wife. Though there are a few "ewwww yuck" moments (how do you feel about bloody teeth raining down upon your head while you're a patient IN a hospital), the film in its entirety was a little better than just OK. It seemed almost like a couple different story lines showing at the same time.
It wasn't close to fabulous and not close to horrible either.

I had much higher hopes for this movie, the concept was great but the execution left something to be desired.

Absolutely NOT your "typical" posession movie. Very intriguing.
