The premise of the short, which debuted on the Crypt Monsters Facebook page earlier this month, is a pretty cool homage to the teen horror flicks of yore.

An attractive young lady in on the phone with her boyfriend and tells him to come over to the house she’s babysitting at.

She promises her beau that she will put the kid to sleep and finally gets the kid down, despite his best efforts to stay awake.

Once in his bedroom, he tells his Elf on the Shelf that he wishes he was real because then he could do whatever he wanted.

The boy falls asleep but his Elf comes to life in a horrifying manner.

Watch – But Beware! This Ain’t A Kids’ Toy:

You’ll never be able to look at the Elf on the Shelf the same way again.
