Step aside Chucky, THE ELF is headed home this November!
This Holiday Season All Is Not Calm.
This November, warm up the eggnog, slap on a silly jumper and gather around the TV for the enchantingly frightening tale of an ancient elf doll that comes to life and terrorizes an unsuspecting family in Uncork’d Entertainment’s The Elf!
If Pennywise warmed the cockles of your heart, and if you feel Chucky is the gift that keeps on giving, reward yourself with some quality time with The Elf!
Nick is haunted by night terrors stemming from a tragic murder he saw when he was young. After inheriting an old toy shop, he discovers a cursed elf doll sealed inside an ancient chest with a naughty list of his family’s names written on it. He soon discovers that the elf was an evil conduit meant to unleash a supernatural killing spree during the Christmas Holidays by whomever set it free.
A bloody treat arrives November 7 on VOD and December 12 on DVD with The Elf, written and directed by Justin Price (The 13th Friday) and starring Natassia Halabi, Les Best, and Joseph Daniel Ellis.

My thoughts: Okay, if you didn’t groan and then grin at the fact that someone was making Elf on the Shelf into a horror movie, we simply can’t be friends. I mean, it was inevitable, right? Creepy little dolls that way too many people pull out every Christmas. Add to it the fact that we pretend they get into mischief… That’s just a recipe for a mischievous murderous doll film, am I right?
I don’t do Elf on the Shelf. For that matter, i don’t do dolls either. After I saw Child’s Play for the first time when I was little, I tied all my dolls to their chairs. That wasn’t good enough, so I stuffed them in a garbage bag, put them in a closet, and put a chair against the door. The next day, I threw them away. To this day I have an innate distrust of dolls. So, yeah, Elf on the Shelf isn’t ever happening in this household. Still, I’m a sucker for evil doll films, so the trailer for The Elf had me grinning in unabashed glee!
What are your thoughts? Will you be watching The Elf this November?
