Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A grim horror-comedy that amuses only when it tries to alarm."
‑ Guy Lodge, Variety
"Elfie Hopkins has a promising set-up and some suitably quirky set design but it's let down by a disappointing script and a one-note performance from Jaime Winstone."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"This film treads a line between camp horror (Ray Winstone's ludicrous butcher providing welcome comic relief) and a violent gore-fest."
‑ Alex Zane, Sun Online
"It's cheaply made, shambolically written, diabolically acted, badly directed and excruciatingly awful."
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Post
"It's a bit of a mess that doesn't serve its decent cast well. Avoid like a stinky kipper."
‑ Anna Smith, Empire Magazine
"There's a hint of camp pleasure to be gained from the film's early soft-focus domestic scenes and late hysterics, but 'Elfie Hopkins' is sunk by a lame script and mannered performances."
‑ Dave Calhoun, Time Out
"It would be interesting to see how many people want to walk out after half an hour. But I bet they stay put for the horribly gruesome bits."
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Mail
"It doesn't totally take off until the final act, but there's evidence here that Ryan Andrews will become a force to be reckoned with."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"There are moments when even the actors seem embarrassed to be there."
‑ Jessica Lambert, Little White Lies
"Gratuitous gore, contrived plotting... and Ray Winstone's butcher cameo deserves to be filleted."
‑ James Mottram, Total Film
"I felt like taking my felt pen to the film's poster and turning the overindulged star's name into "J'aime pas Winstone"."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"A poor screenplay and some dubious acting in subsidiary roles make for a misguided horror thriller."
‑ Derek Malcolm, This is London
"Despite the addition of dark fun and much-needed action, the over-the-top carnage unfortunately intensifies the feature's lack of depth and balance."
‑ Sloan Freer, Radio Times
"Lamentable in script, performance and execution..."
‑ Elliott Noble, Sky Movies
