The Elf

★½☆☆ – (2017) – A toy elf terrorizes an extremely small family to finish some sort of mischievous cycle.¬† Despite showing signs of life toward the end, getting there is a total drag mainly because no actor seems eager to be working on this project.¬† A drab experience with horror inclusions that could easily be avoided.

Elves (2018)

★☆☆☆ – (2018) – People added to a naughty list are picked off by those possessed by a toy elf. Begins with a scene featuring the worst child actors ever put to film, and somehow gets worse from there. An incoherent mess with unfocused advancements, pitiful murders, and irritating smirks that rip off Truth or Dare.¬†Absolutely miserable.

Krampus 2: The Devil Returns

★☆☆☆ – (2016) – Kris Kringle and his demonic brother punish bad kids and those who intend to stop them. If the intentions were to create a film with no excitement, no character worth caring about, and no reason to follow up the previous dud, then this succeeds admirably. Anyone looking for a film with a purpose and a pulse should look elsewhere.
