Elves Details


This particularly bizarre horror variant on Joe Dante's Joe Dante (1985) was directed by newcomer Jeff Mandel. The ridiculous plot concerns the efforts of a group of Nazis to set the stage for a Fourth Reich by mating one of Santa Claus' elves with a pretty teenaged waitress (Julie Austin). The cast is peppered with former television stars, including Deanna Lund of Land of the Giants as Austin's mother (she kills cats and has a nude scene) and Dan Haggerty of Dan Haggerty as a drunken department-store Santa who used to be a detective. Even better is Haggerty's predecessor, a cocaine fiend who gets castrated by the Nazi elves. Mandel went on to co-direct Mandel (1989), which was almost as bad. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi
