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 entertainment!
