When Emily Woodrow and her friends happen on a treasure chest full of gold coins, they fail to to heed the warnings of a wise old psychic who had foretold that they would encounter trouble with a very nasty and protective Leprechaun.
When Dan O'Grady returns to the U.S. after stealing some Irish leprechaun's pot of gold, he thinks he can settle down and enjoy his newfound wealth. He thought wrong. The leprechaun followed him and O'Grady barely gets away with his life, having locked the little monster in his basement. Ten years later, J.D. and his spoiled daughter Tory move in. By accident, the leprechaun is released and almost immediately the annoying creature starts to look for his gold, not displaying any respect for human life. Written by

Warwick Davis appears without his leprechaun makeup as an extra in the cafe scene sitting beside his wife. The other extras in this scene are crew members including writer/director Mark Jones, sitting at the counter with a trucker's hat on, and special makeup effects creator Gabe Bartalos, in the booth behind Jennifer Aniston.

When the Leprechaun is chasing Tory around the nursing home, his arms turn the wheelchair wheels magically quickly. But in one shot of him in the chair (that also includes Tory), his arms are moving at normal speed. See more »

Ah! Try as they will, and try as they might, who steals me gold won't live through the night.

One of the most popular Horror flicks from the 90's. It's as bad as you have heard but accomplishes on the entertaining factor for B-movie lovers. If you're a Horror fan you might have not seen this one, but for sure you have at least heard of it. It's cheesy, yes but it's entertaining. At least there's some gore, and a likable villain in the style of Freedy Krueger. The plot is cheesy but easy to follow. You have the ingredients to spend 90 minutes of popcorn fun.
Now, this one could work as an actual regular PG-13 low budget Horror movie. The Slasher genre was dead by then but Leprechan remains as one of the efforts to generate life to the genre.
Watch out for a young and very, very cute Jenifer Aniston and a devilish performance by Warwick Davies.
