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.

Why couldn't this movie pick up where "Leprechaun" left off? I was confused and disappointed to see this film start off with a completely different leprechaun who just happens to look like the original. Although this film is flawed and not as imaginative and atmospheric as the first, it still remains watchable. It helms a slightly decent plot, has a few genuine "jump" scenes, and features crisp, bright costumes and sets. The problem with the leprechaun series is that it takes the leprechaun to new and uninteresting heights when it should try recapturing the atmosphere and fear the original was able to deliver.
