EVIL ELVES is a Christmas horror film in which a group of friends are haunted by elf dolls which compel them to perform acts of violence.

Violence

One man repeatedly slams another's head with a car door, resulting in strong bloody detail. There is sight of blood spray and blood smeared on a woman's face when another woman beats her to death with a poker. A boy traps another boy in an oven and turns it on, without graphic visual detail. Under the influence of supernatural forces, a man stabs himself in the eye, causing a spurt of blood, and then presses his face against a pillar to force the knife into his head. Other people are shot, strangled or stabbed, resulting in further bloody detail.

Language

There is use of strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker') in addition to milder terms including 'bitch', 'bullshit', 'balls', 'ass', 'son of a bitch' and 'shit'.

Drugs

A woman snorts cocaine. There are also several references to drinks being spiked.

There are scenes of moderate threat including sight of possessed people with distorted faces. There are also infrequent moderate verbal sex references and innuendo.
