An American family fulfills their dream of returning to their roots after inheriting a remote cabin in the mountains of Norway. However, they are in for a big surprise. An elf with a nasty temper lives in the house’s barn. When the family starts to infuriate the creature, a raw and bloody struggle for survival ensues.
French sales and co-production house Charades co-founder Yohann Comte called the film “one of those fun rides you rarely come across.” Adding.. “It’s a privilege to work with XYZ Films for the first time and it’s so Impressive that 74 Entertainment managed to build this ambitious artistic bridge between American classics and Norwegian mythology. We all love a mean elf.”
One of the film’s producers said the following about director Magnus Martens: “He has the sentiment we were looking for and the direct knowledge to the mythology – but also the know-how to make a film that will kick absolute ass all over the world.”
