It was supposed to be nothing but a Christmas-themed drinking game among teenagers when one of them, Chance (Norma Mendiola), suggests to do a "naughty list", with each of them putting their darkest secret on a piece of paper ... but then Chance claims the game is real, and when an elf doll appears to whoever it is from their midst, they have to either follow the elf's (usually pretty malevolent) instruction, or they die in a way related to their darkest secret. At first, nobody takes it seriously, but then Cali (Melissa L. Vega), guilty of a hit-and-run incident, is killed in a car crash, Tiffany (Erika Martinez) almost overdoses on cocaine. The others are soon visited by the elf as well, and deal with it with varying degrees of success, but only Clover (Deanna Grace Congo) and Leah (Stephanie Marie Baggett have the smarts to actually try and track down Chance, who started it all - but all they learn is that she, too, is a small part of a bigger game, and she doesn't have any idea how to get out either. What makes the situation even more dangerous though is that another supernatural killer, the Krampus-like Christmas Reaper, has entered the scene, butchering those who haven't yet been killed by the elves ...

 

Yes, Elves is a slasher, and it doesn't for one moment try to deny or even hide the fact, and truth to be told, sometimes its overly ambitious premise gets a bit in the way of things. But that said, while not exactly the re-invention of the wheel, it's a pretty entertaining formula movie, as it takes itself seriously enough to bring the elves-theme across convincingly without falling back on post-modern irony, and it has all the suspense, jump scares and violence in all the right places to keep the viewer glued to the screen. And of course, a solid cast doesn't hurt one bit, either.
