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.
On his 1000th birthday, a mean Leprechaun gets to choose a bride by making her sneeze three times, then she's his...only the bride he chooses is the daughter of his slave (who fouls up the wedding) so Leprechaun must wait until his 2000th birthday to claim the woman of his nightmares. The descendant of the woman he wanted to marry already has a boyfriend: a brave young boy named Cody, who lives with his swindler uncle Morty and together they run a tour company called Darkside Tours. Leprechaun soon wakes up, kills a bunch of people and kidnaps his bride to be. It's soon up to Cody to save her, and only wrought iron can destroy a Leprechaun. Morty has an idea, but it soon goes horribly wrong when he gets too greedy. Cody ventures into Leprechaun's home to save Bridget, but little does he know that a leprechaun's home has many surprises.

The Leprechaun is back only this time its a different one even though this isn't really explained but it must be a different one because the film starts 1000 years ago. It's the Leprechaun's 1000th birthday and as we all know (of course we do) a Leprechaun gets to pick himself a bride every 1000 years (hmmm are they making up legends here?). So the little guy promises his slave that he will set him free after he has his bride. Little does the slave know the Leprechaun choice of bride is none other than his daughter. All the Leprechaun needs to do is get her to sneeze three times, and he does this. The slave then runs off gets killed and the Leprechaun says he ruined his chance. Now I don't get this bit. He got her to sneeze three times so why then wasn't she his wife? All the slave did was run away, how did that stop him marrying his daughter? But anyway, we cut o 1000 years later and low and behold that's today. It's the Leprechaun's birthday again and he has his eyes on a new bride. This films seems to completely disregard the first film as some of the rules have completely changed. For instance in the first film it was a four leaved clover that killed the little guy, in this one its iron. But in the first film he came out of the safe in the shop just before he killed the guy with a pogo stick. In this one they put him in a safe to try and kill him, what's going on there? There are some really good scenes in this film that I liked a lot. Seeing the Leprechaun getting drunk was great. All the little people egging him on was superb. Some of the acting was terrible though. most noticeably by the girl that played Bridget. The guys that played Cody and Morty were OK and Morty was a great character, and of course Warwick was great as the Leprechaun despite his constant terrible rhyming. There was a bit more gore in this one but not really enough for the sort of film it is. Low budget horrors like this need gore if you ask me. The directing was ok with some strange shaky angles and the whole cave place where the Leprechaun lived looked pretty good. On the whole it probably wasn't as good as the first but was still an enjoyable little B movie.
