This leprechaun is not chasing after you to put the blue diamonds and green clovers back into your bowl of cereal! This demonic little imp is on a vindictive murderous spree against anybody that steals his gold! He quips, he laughs, he stabs, and chops. It’s hard to take this movie serious in any fashion. The killer is a damned Leprechaun wearing little knee high socks and a shamrock adorned hat. This film has the dubious distinction of starring a pre-Friends, pre-nose job Jennifer Aniston as the female protagonist. This film developed a franchise (as all horror films tend to) and each subsequent sequel was more ridiculous than the last: Leprechaun 2 and 3, Leprechaun 4: In Space, Leprechaun: In the Hood, Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood. The original is silly fun. It’s a kin to listening to Freddy Krueger of the Nightmare on Elm Street films cracking wise as he slices and dices, but with a maniacal killer a third his height and half the fashion sense.
