First, it was Beetlejuice. Then came Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein Lives. Now, it’s the return of yet another haunted house from 2020’s limited daytime showing: Revenge of the Tooth Fairy.
The scariest of the three mazes from last year, Tooth Fairy relied mainly on traditional jumpscares, but did so in a setting that was as creative as it was creepy: an old manor that had been overtaken by “yellow-clawed fiends” – better known as Tooth Fairies – who extract teeth by force from those who inexplicably aren’t willing to hand them over to the creatures. A storybook-esque narrative frames the whole experience, using both voiceover from a disembodied narrator and verses written out on the stately walls, which makes the proceedings all the more gruesome and chilling. Which isn’t to imply that the proceedings weren’t disturbing to begin with – these depictions of gore can best be summed up as “dental torture,” which is precisely what we did in our review from last year. It’s this interplay of story and scares that helped make this haunt the favorite of the Orlando Informer team in 2020, and we’re sure it’ll also help Tooth Fairy anchor the whole haunted-house roster for 2021.
Need a refresher on what Universal’s full description of Revenge of the Tooth Fairy is? No problem:
The innocent traditions of the tooth fairy hide a darker ritual. All children must give up their baby teeth to the goblin-esque tooth fairies or pay a gruesome price. Step into an old manor that has been overrun by yellow-clawed fiends who extract teeth by force. It’s an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.
Revenge of the Tooth Fairy will join Beetlejuice, The Haunting of Hill House, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Universal Monsters: Bride of Frankenstein Lives, and HHN Icons: Captured at Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights, which runs for a record-breaking 42 select nights, from Friday, September 3 to Saturday, October 31.
