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.
Residents of a small backwoods community summons the murdeeous demon of vengeance himself for revenge against a local mortician who wronged there deceased love ones, while a town physician seeks to kill those involved in it's summoning.
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.

Denise Richards was a major contender for the role of Bridget. See more »
A direct quote from the first movie reveals the leprechaun's age to be 600 years, not 2000. It is, however, never stated that this is the same Leprechaun from the first film. The fact that the Leprechaun was killed in the first film, supports this. See more »

I remember catching this film on UPN back in 2001, and it was surprisingly more scary than the original. Don't get me wrong, the original wasn't as scary or as a nightmare as this one; this time as the trailers said, "He's Back!" This time Leprechaun (Warwick Davis) is on the search for his bride after his latest 1000 birthday and wants to breed more leprechauns. Like the first movie, he wants his gold after it has been stolen or has been retrieved by the main hero of the film. Most of the death scenes are more violent than the last film, but than, again, its just a movie. On a lighter note, you get to see Clint Howard as a tourist; Sandy Baron (Seinfeld) as the hero's partner; and Michael McDonald (MadTV) as one of the Leprechaun's victims.
