Movie Info

This particularly bizarre horror variant on Joe Dante's Gremlins (1985) was directed by newcomer Jeff Mandel. The ridiculous plot concerns the efforts of a group of Nazis to set the stage for a Fourth Reich by mating one of Santa Claus' elves with a pretty teenaged waitress (Julie Austin). The cast is peppered with former television stars, including Deanna Lund of Land of the Giants as Austin's mother (she kills cats and has a nude scene) and Dan Haggerty of The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams as a drunken department-store Santa who used to be a detective. Even better is Haggerty's predecessor, a cocaine fiend who gets castrated by the Nazi elves. Mandel went on to co-direct Robo-C.H.I.C. (1989), which was almost as bad.

If you have a copy of it for some reason, I recommend burning it and burying the remains in an empty lot and never looking back.

As bad as a B-movie about killer elves can be.

Audience Reviews for Elves


This film is ridiculous! It's not gory, it's not scary, it's just silly. The plot is out of this world! Three bimbos accidentally awaken a murderous elf whilst playing around in the woods. Soon one of them discovers that she is the focus of an evil Nazi experiment involving selective breeding and the attempt to create the next master race. Naturally, the only person who can help her is an alcoholic down-on-his-luck ex-cop now working as a department store Santa. Some of the dialogue is ingenious in its silliness! Especially the conversation between the Santa and Dr. Fitzpatrick. The elf itself is a weird mixture of Marilyn Manson and Coppola's giant bat!Dracula.
