Gnomes are not an unknown presence in film, not even in horror. In fact, they have been featured in 2015, including Indian horror films Gnome alone Played by Verne Troyer. However, the mythological creatures were largely ignored in favor of their lesser relatives, trolls, elves, and goblins.

To see gnomes on screen, you usually have to look at the kitsch classic, the garden gnome. Garden gnomes have been the focus of several major films, including a 2011 animated duology. Gnomeo and Juliet and 2018 Sherlock gnomes, comedies that bring classic literature to life using sentient garden gnomes. Also, the other major gnome outing was the 1967 Disney live-action film. Gnome-Mobile.
