We are always hungry for more holiday horror, and this year Netflix is delivering in the form of Elves, a new six-episode series coming to the platform later this month. I Know What You Did Last Summer but instead of a fisherman with a hook, it's The Lorax, and instead of the Lorax, it's actually an evil elven creature. Ok, maybe it's unfair to say "evil" as the elven creatures may just be protecting their home or rebelling against some habitat-destroying, human shenanigans. Either way, this looks like a wonderful fantasy on the brink of veering headlong into horror and we can't wait to check it out. Watch the trailer and check out the official synopsis for Elves below:
Hoping to reconnect over Christmas, a family of four travels to a remote island in the Danish archipelago, only to find it controlled by members of a strongly religious community living in balance with fierce creatures in the woods revealed to be… elves. Real, monstrous beings that inspired the folklore and myths we all know. When the girl in the family finds and brings home a baby elf, she inadvertently disrupts the balance and throws everyone on the island into a life-or-death battle for faith, family and pure survival.
Elves is streaming on Netflix November 28, 2021.
