For some, Halloween’s all about dressing up and trick-or-treating.
For others, it’s more about haunted houses and horror movie marathons.
And when it comes to the latter, believe it or don’t, even the tooth fairy has been dragged into the act.
Yes, you might have thought she was all cute and sparkly (and sometimes hyper-commercialized), but at least one movie gives her a dark side.
A very dark side.
A tale of a mysterious woman, a little girl, and her single mother, The Haunting of Helena presents a new twist on the legend of the Tooth Fairy.
After a divorce, Sophia moves to the south of Italy with her daughter, Helena. Their new home, an apartment within an austere building of the fascist age, is a chance for them to start a new life. But inside an old storage room hides a mysterious closet and a buried secret. After the loss of Helena’s first baby tooth, a chilling obsession begins and an apparition haunts her sleep. Dreams become nightmares. Nightmares become reality. When Helena collects her classmate’s fallen teeth with an urgent hunger, it is clear that there is far more to their new home than can be seen. Sophia finds herself in a terrifying fight to save her child while maintaining her sanity.
If you’ve ever had the common nightmare of having your teeth fall out, you might want to skip the “hail storm of bloody teeth” scene posted on Crave.
Have a safe, fun and happy Halloween!
