Netflix has announced that new six-part Danish drama Elves, written by Stefan Jaworski (Those Who Kill), has begun production outside of Copenhagen and promises to bring back the real, monstrous beings that inspired the folklore and myths we all know.
Hoping to reconnect over Christmas, a family of four travel 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.
However, 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.
Producer, Peter Bose, said: “Elves is a Christmas horror show exploring the premise: what if Elves were real and dangerous? And once again Netflix shows that they dare when others don’t. We praise that Netflix opens the doors to new genres which we couldn’t afford to develop and produce in the past in our local market.”
