When Mike McGavin asks the librarian about books on the occult, he is referred to section "666". In an American library, which uses Dewey Decimal Classification, books on parapsychology and the supernatural would be reserved in 130. 666 is actually for ceramic and allied technologies. See more »

Bizarre plot
13 June 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The best thing about Elves is most definitely the plot. The acting is so-so, the elf itself (yes, there's only one elf) is OK but a bit cheesy looking when you get to see it. You don't get to see it very much sadly. I didn't really get bored whilst watching Elves, which I was thankful for. The bizarre plot keeps you wondering what will happen next, especially after revelations about in-breeding and Nazis. There is one hilarious line when the girls brother says "Is everything going to be alright?", to which she replies: "No Willy, granddad's a Nazi".

The main problem with Elves is that it doesn't really do much. Yeah, the plot is bizarre, but the film doesn't really do it justice. You don't get to see much of the elf, so really the film is more like a bizarre story being narrated by the characters, as opposed to an actual film.
