Life for a tooth.
As a young boy, Kyle Walsh (Chaney Kley) claims to have seen the fearsome Tooth Fairy kill his own mother. He also claims that having seen her, she wont stop until she also kills him. Years later, and still haunted by the experience of that night, Kyle must return to Darkness Falls to aid his childhood sweetheart, Caitlin Greene (Emma Caulfield) and her kid brother Michael, the latter of which who seems to be at risk from the Tooth Fairy this time around. Can Kyle confront his fears and end the 150 years of terror that has blighted Darkness Falls?
Pretty much despised by the discerning horror-phile, Darkness Falls, to me at least, is a creepy, interesting and totally enjoyable thriller/ghost picture worth reappraisals. From the excellent, and chilling opening credits (where we nicely have a back story to work from), to the final confrontation, Darkness Falls ticks most of the ghostly requisites that is asked of it. Scary demon (troubled children with night terrors should be explored more in cinema I feel), cannon fodder bullies, cannon fodder obnoxious coppers and a constant sense of unease and dread. All of which is provided in Jonathan Liebesman’s (“The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning”) film. It’s with the sense of dread that I feel that this deserves a better reputation. Hand on my heart I know the film isn’t a scary boo jump picture, something that is unforgivable to many genre supporters, but atmosphere goes a long way to creating a good thriller/ghost story picture. Darkness Falls has it in spades, and it’s also a film that is a nice antidote to the blood beast torture sub-genre of film that seep out from the multi-plexes on a seemingly weekly basis.
Any expectation of an outright horror film should be quickly extinguished prior to a first time viewing, and if noise annoys and staccato editing bugs you? well stay away. Also don’t line up if one demands great acting in a budget restricted piece such as this, since both Kley & Caulfield are only adequate at best. But give it a go if you understand that a preposterous plot, and preposterous set pieces are a pre-requisite for horror films of this type. I say that since I’ve seen many comments decrying Darkness Falls for the unbelievable elements – only to then search their other comments to find praise for even more ludicrously plotted pieces! Or give it a go knowing it’s more about the creeping stalking menace side of horror, or that it’s also an action thriller as well as an uneasy story. Maybe just maybe you will enjoy it for what it is? Otherwise I guess you will be looking forward to “Hostel 22” or another “Jason Attacks The Eiffel Tower” movie… 7/10
This was an interesting watch. Though not great, it had moody ambience in spades, and I’m intrigued of what the future holds for director Liebesman. Worth a watch.
Spend a little time in the fun house…
Darkness Falls follows closely in style to films like John Carpenter’s “The Fog”. The modest budget of the film is offset by an imaginative use of style, lighting and sound.
All the negative reviews on this film have me wondering if today’s horror film aficionados are so jaded that they have forgotten that sometimes a visit to a fun house can be as much fun as spending an hour or two with Hannibal Lector. If you can give up your concept of needing to be hit over the head with shock, you can have a good time with the film. It’s not a dog by any measure.
This is an old fashioned scary movie. It’s a “Popcorn Film”. It does not pretend to be high art. The tight running time is a credit the director. In short…it was not great, it was not bad, it was a fun little ride.
Better with the deleted scenes
I saw this on cable with almost all the deleted scenes reinstated — including the “classroom” scene that isn’t even included on the DVD. It was a _much_ better film than the cut-down version. I wish I could find or tape this expanded, reinstated-scenes version. It’s a dang shame that some directors think they have to cut some of the best little parts out of their films to make them “better” and they just ruin them. In this film, the deliberate slow pacing in the first half makes the no-prisoners-taken pacing of the 2nd half much better, but you must have the full version, not the truncated one, to see this! I don’t care for “Freddy Kruger” films or “Jason” films, and the remakes of “The Thing” and “The Blob” were just stupid compared with the originals (like the remakes of “Phantom of the Opera” were), and some viewers don’t like “DF” for its use of dialogue and lack of gratuitous gore, but for me those old-school qualities made this film work. I idea that an unreasoning something will get you no matter what, even if it takes 12 years, is true horror, but “Kruguer” and “Jason” films are so heavyhanded that there’s no surprise. You know the creep is always going to get the next person. In “DF” you never knew who was next, or who would even be “up” to be next. But you really need to see the long, uncut version!
