Elfie Hopkins, a 22 year-old animal-loving slacker, stoner, and wannabe detective, lives in a sleepy hunting village. Haunted by the death of her mother, Elfie seeks solace and inspiration from the old school detectives in The Maltese Falcon and Chinatown. She entertains herself, along with her geeky best friend, Dylan, by investigating the villagers and upsetting everyone with their imaginative allegations. Things get serious however with the arrival of a family of trendy city dwellers, the Gammons, who weave seductive tales of adventure and entice the villagers with offers of exotic hunting holidays around the world. Despite not being immune to the Gammons charms, Elfie soon smells a rat, and snaps into full detective mode. Her mundane existence is about to be blown apart. Blood quickly starts to spill in the village, and it s no longer just the blood of animals. Elfie discovers the villagers are not making those flights and when she finally uncovers the truth, it s darker than she could ever have imagined...

It's the story of a plucky inspiring teenage detective called Elfie (Jaime Winstone) who, along with her fellow stoner friend Dylan (Aneurin Barnard) stumble across their first major case when a suspicious new family move into their neighbourhood.
The first half is really quite entertaining, we slowly learn more about this strange family, and I couldn't help but love Elfie for her spiritedness and determination to find a story there, whilst also noticing that her 'friend' obviously would like her to be more than that, and she is in fact the reason he has remained in the sleepy village instead of heading for university.
Towards the end, things get much more violent and bloody, with the characters dropping like flies. It's both funny and gory, but not something you'll want to watch again shortly after. I enjoyed 'Elfie Hopkins', and it was certainly better than the DVD cover might lead you to believe, but firmly one to watch on a lazy afternoon if you don't wish too concentrate to hard on a movie.
The audience is left in the dark as to what is going on, if anything, as things have an explanation outside of the Gammons.
This is a cult film which is a light dark comedy, pardon my oxymoron. Elfie operates in an amateur fashion using 1980's technology. She clearly plays her hand too soon. Just a fun cult popcorn film.
Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.
The single disc opens to three film trailers then goes to main screen offering play, scene selection, extras [2 deleted scenes, making of, trailer and Little Munchkin—a brilliant 10 minute short drama and the catalyst for the main film] and audio set up [5.1 or 2.0 only].
There are plenty of false trails as the story slowly winds its way, the suspense growing as the film progresses to its gruesome conclusion. Some strong language and bloody violence and gore toward the end make this a surprise 15 rating. Unfortunately the publicity for this film acts as the plot spoiler [lose a *] and gives away the main plot twist, so the less you know, the better it will be. For that reason alone it gets a solid **** rating, otherwise ***** if you know nothing about it.
