*The Warlock reads the tag-line*

Warlock: “A vengeful spirit has taken the form of the Tooth Fairy to exact vengeance on the town that lynched her 150 years earlier. Her only opposition is the only child, now grown up, who has survived her before. ”

Mr. America: One cavity too many.

Mr. Wallstreet: PG-13?

The Warlock: That can’t be good.

Mr. America: Never saw it coming!

 

“Two children went missing. They blamed Matilda. They hanged her”

The Warlock: Assholes.

Mr. Wallstreet: They jumped the gun a little bit.

Mr. America: Medusa already beat her to the punch on the whole “Don’t look at her face ordeal.”

 

*Kid spits out blood in sink*

The Warlock: Stop drinking drano kid.

 

*Kid hides his underwear from his girlfriend*

Mr. America: What kind of dance would it be?

Mr. Wallstreet: He must have studied the book on that.

 

*Kyle kisses girl*

Mr. America: They’re supposed to be kids right?

The Warlock: Yup

*Kyle sees a ghost fly by*

Mr. America: Don’t worry, its not the bogeyman, he hides UNDER the bed.”

 

*Kyle pulls the sheet over his head*

The Warlock: That’s really not going to help.

Mr. Wallstreet: Stand up and fight!

 

*Kyle reaches for his flashlight*

Mr. Wallstreet: Reach for your gun, not for your flashlight!

Mr. America: You expect this kid to have a gun?

 

*Kyle’s mom walks down a long hallway after Kyle screams*

Mr. America: Why are the hallways always long in horror movies?

Mr. America: That’s what YOU think.

 

*Larry: “Goodbye honey.” Kyle: “Cat, I’m sorry.”*

Mr. Wallstreet: I think I know why Kyle said he was sorry, she ended up with this loser.

*Camera pans on a tooth on the ground*

The Warlock: Hey, there’s the tooth. Kyle can rest easy now.

The Warlock’s Assessment: I’m shocked. I was expecting evil tooth fairy to be horrendous, instead it was GOOD. Good soundtrack, good suspense, good CGI, I’m stunned. 7 out of 10

Final Grade: 6.5  Very good

 

Bonus:

Mr. America: All my baby teeth are out, I’m safe.
