Darkness Falls (2003) Review:

Darkness Falls adds up to the list of average American ghost movies, this time dealing with the tooth fairy. So to say the least, the story is exactly similar to so many other ghost movies, which really turned me off.

This said, the ghost itself is quite scary and, combined with some great action scenes in the first hour, surprises by its impressive visual in the film’s beginning. The problem is that the ghost is shown way too much and the initial excitation is worn out pretty quickly, making the last third of Darkness Falls boring.

In many ways, this film reminded me of the terribly insipid Boogeyman (2005), one of the worst films I ever saw.

In conclusion, I think that people who are not used to see ghost films (or horror films at all) would probably enjoy this one, but horror fans will have the annoying feeling that they have seen too many of these films.
