It's been three months now that Victoria (Natassia Halabi) has been
together with Nick (Gabriel Miller), despite the fact that everybody has
called him a creep, and despite the fact that she knows absolutely nothing
about his past other than that he hates Christmas. And now, for Christmas,
she has invited her family over to their house in the middle of nowhere -
which does piss off Nick quite a bit. Even worse though is that Victoria's
father (Lassiter Holmes) reveals Nick's secret to her, that he at the
tender age of nine years has stabbed his own father to death and has been
in treatment ever since. But it only gets really bad when people start
dying, and while at first everybody suspects Nick, it eventually becomes
clear that it's actually a small elf doll come to life that does all the
killings - and that cannot be killed before it has offed everybody on its
naughty list ...
Ok, even though The Elf plays it
straight, based on its wild concept it should still be taken with a grain
of salt - as all little creature-slashers of the Child's Play
variety should. After all, this film hasn't set out to be the next Citizen
Kane but to entertain us and creep us out - and The Elf
delivers on those accounts, the fun premise notwithstanding it's a very
tense horror thriller with plenty of suspense, jump scares and fun murder
scenes, and it's carried by a very relatable cast and a directorial effort
that shows deep understanding for the genre.
In all, solid genre
