Leprechaun 5 (2000)
Director: Rob Spera
Main Stars: Warwick Davis, Ice-T, Anthony Montgomery
Storyline: A bunch of rappers want a pimp to pay for his doing so they unleash a leprechaun to help.
Review (Spoils): A bunch of rap musicians need new equipment so they join a contest to win the stuff. They make a deal with a pimp named Mack Daddy (Ice-T) who says he can help but when the time of need comes he drops them off cold and dry with the help. The rappers want revenge for the lead on so they break into his house and steal a bunch of shit including a medal from a stone statue. With the medal the statue comes to live as the leprechaun (Warwick Davis). Guess what he goes on a killing spree looking for his pot of gold yet again.
This time the little guy is wrecking havoc in the hood… we have him rapping, lots of F bombs, lots of gold, great one liner, some zombie chicks and the leprechaun smokes a four leaf clover what the Hell!!! We have a film that did not take itself serious and it shouldn’t as it’s the Leprechaun series!
Rating: An afterthought of this film is man you could really drink to this film to the amount of F bombs or certain rap lingo. The movie does not take itself serious but at the same time are entertaining and way better then the last one in space. Hell when are you ever going to see a transvestite have sex with a leprechaun ….never so watch the damn film!
Leprechaun 4 (1996)
Director: Brian Trenchard-Smith
Main Stars: Warwick Davis, Brent Jasmer, Jessica Collins, Rebecca Carlton
Storyline: A space princess wants to separate the leprechaun from his gold
Review (Spoils): My god the mighty leprechaun (Warwick Davis) is now located in space. He kidnaps Princess Zarina (Rebecca Carlton) and plans to make himself king of the planet of Dominia. He kills her father the king but he gets destroyed in the process by a grenade. In this battle we learn that the princess has special regenerating powers (she lost her hand in this battle) and the mad scientist wants to user her DNA to repair him disfigured body. During all this the leprechaun returns and has revenge as he emerged from a penis that urinated on him dead body.
We have some urination on a leprechaun head, leprechaun emerging from a penis, enlarged leprechaun, lots of DNA mixtures, and lots of Jessica Collins in her panties and more exploding fun. We have some blood, sci-fi stupidness and lack of clothes for the sake of it after all it’s a horror film.
Rating: Why do/did people think making horror films in space is a smart idea (outside of the Aliens series)? Dumb and really dumb is what this is. Sure we have some pointless flesh but this series is really hard to take after while as it just goes down the shitter.
Leprechaun 3 (1995)
Director: Brian Trenchard-Smith
Main Stars: Warwick Davis, John Gatins, Lee Armstrong
Storyline: A man walks into a Vegas pawn shop with a statue of leprechaun with a medallion along his neck. The necklace gets removed releasing the monstrous leprechaun onto Vegas!
Review (Spoils): The leprechaun (Warwick Davis) is back and this time he in Vegas. He was trapped in a statue with a good luck medallion holding him but when this was removed the nasty little beast get released. During this a young couple run into each other and fall in love (it is Vegas) but the poor bastard looses everything so he heads to a pawnshop. During this he runs into the body of the guy that removed the medallion but he comes across a gold piece. This leads to a wish and a winning streak. But then there is a fight and he gets bitten by the leprechaun which leads to he slowly becoming one. The coin turns out to lead to curse and the leprechaun starts to kill people off as they start using the coin.
This film is whacked as it involves the classic leprechaun, a chainsaw, a robot, a man who is turning into a leprechaun, an exploding woman, some nasty bites and everyone is trying to sleep with Tammy (Lee Armstrong).
Rating: This is where the series like the Nightmare on Elm Street failed… too much comedy not enough blood and scares. When a series crossed the thin line of funny and never came back. If you’re looking for more dumb than scary then this up your alley.
Leprechaun 2 (1994)
Director: Rodman Flender
Main Stars: Warwick Davis, Charlie Heath, Shevonne Durkin, Kimmy Robertson, Clint Howard
Storyline: The leprechaun is on the hunt for a bride
Review (Spoils): The leprechaun (Warwick Davis) is dedicated a bride for him after his 1000 birthday by making her sneezes 3 times unless someone says “God Bless you”. He travels to the land in search of the woman of his dreams in which she already has a boyfriend. He finds Bridget (Shevonne Durkin) and kidnaps her and her boyfriend Cody (Charlie Heath ) needs to save her. He finds out that only cold iron can destroy the leprechaun so he travels to the home of the fey and tries to rescue her and put an end to the evil beast.
We have some lawnmowers, telephone cord strangling, drunken leprechauns, stomach cuts, St. Pats fun and the tree lair of the leprechaun.
Rating: Too be honest this series is just whacked. We have silly moments and some dumb moments. The acting is very limited and the whole idea of the leprechaun is beyond silly in the horror genre. Grab some green beer for this one if you’re already drunk and got some time to kill.
Director: Mark Jones
Main Stars: Warwick Davis, Jennifer Aniston, Ken Olandt
Storyline: A killer and magic wielding leprechaun goes on a killing spree looking for his pot of gold.
Review (Spoils): A man comes back from Ireland with a pot of gold for his wife. In the truth he brings also the killer leprechaun (Warwick Davis) that wants it back. He gets captured because of the fear of the 4 leaf clover and ten years later after a man and his snotty daughter Tory (Jennifer Aniston) move into the house and accidently release him. Basically from here on in the evil fey wants his gold back, Tory falls for hunky Nathan (Ken Olandt)and he have some poor acting my a annoying man and even more annoying kid.
The film tries with one liners but fails. The film tries with horror and gore and there is some such as nasty bites, scratches and other lame kills. But overall outside of the Warwick Davis great makeup and the screaming 80s-90s of Jennifer Aniston this movie is really dumb. The comedy part of the movie is just downright stupid.
Rating: The first of a long series of silly and lame one liners of a evil fey trying to get his gold back. I guess you can drink the beauty of Jennifer Aniston or bring anytime someone says “My pot of Gold” or “Luck of the Irish” but overall this film sucked.
