Forget about the elf and go somewhere else...
Wow! This movie was terrible!
I managed to endure 35 minutes of it, before I gave up out of sheer and utter boredom. Nothing, and I do mean literally nothing, had happened in the 35 minutes.
The storyline was flat and pointless.
The characters were one-dimensional cardboard cut outs that had no personalities and were portrayed by actors whom seemed not to buy into the movie themselves.
There were also continuity errors as well; one scene where the guy found the elf doll it was snowing behind him then as the camera angle changed the snow was gone but it magically returned as the camera angle changed again. And also when the couple was having a conversation about the elf doll in their home, the woman's shirt was alternating between being pulled up or down as the camera angle changed.
For a horror movie then "The Elf" offered little, if anything at all, which would make it appealing to anyone. I didn't find anything worthwhile in the movie. And despite only having suffered through 35 minutes, then I can in all honesty say that I am not returning to finish it ever.
Stay well clear of this movie!
