Extra Info

Who has never dreamt of leaving behind everything, packing their bags and starting all over in a new country? That takes courage, you say? Wussies! The Nordheims, a wholesome American family, are brave enough to set sail to some godforsaken place in Norway. For daddy Bill it’s a dream come true to finally go back to his ancestral roots. Carol, his wife, isn’t too sure about this odd country that whips up dishes that sound more like Ikea furniture than actually edible things. And the kids, Nora and Lucas? Horrified at the idea they’re to spend the rest of their lives in this spermatozoid-shaped country that has nothing but moose, ice foxes and Burzum to keep them company while freezing their asses off. But young Lucas is going to meet another life form in the shed in their yard, an ancient elf, who is the perfect gentlemanly neighbor for as long as they stick to three simple rules: no bright lights, no excessive noise and no big changes. But if you know daddy Bill is planning to turn the shed into a B&B and wants to throw a gigantic Christmas party to which the whole neighborhood is invited, you can count on it that things are going to get ugly…

For those of you who want to extent their Christmas monster movie diet of GREMLINS, KRAMPUS and RARE EXPORT, director Magnus Martens has the perfect present for underneath the Christmas tree. A family film in which said family is being besieged by pitchfork-wielding bloodthirsty elves! And we’ve checked: even during Easter the film is whole lot of jolly good fun!
