Guy Lodge

A grim horror-comedy that amuses only when it tries to alarm.

Matthew Turner

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.

The Sun (UK)

This film treads a line between camp horror (Ray Winstone's ludicrous butcher providing welcome comic relief) and a violent gore-fest.

Time Out

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.

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.

Peter Bradshaw

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.

I felt like taking my felt pen to the film's poster and turning the overindulged star's name into "J'aime pas Winstone".

London Evening Standard

A poor screenplay and some dubious acting in subsidiary roles make for a misguided horror thriller.

Radio Times

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.
