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.
It was a normal night in Las Vegas, Nevada, all the lights were flashing brightly, until a man with one hand, one eye, and one leg walks into a pawn shop with a statue of a hideous looking Leprechaun. The owner claims it's a good luck charm. The statue also wore a medallion around it's neck. The careless pawn shop owner took off the medallion setting the Leprechaun free, along with his pot of gold that everyone wants and like before, he'll kill anyone who goes near it. Driving into town that night was a young man named Scott who was off to L.A. to go to school. Along the way he meets a sarcastic, but friendly, girl named Tammy. Scott tries gambling but loses everything, so he goes to the pawn shop to pawn his Rolex watch. At the shop, he finds the dead owner and one of Leprechaun's gold coins that grants a wish to its finder. Scott wishes for a winning streak, but what he does not know is that the casino is run by a crooked man who hates to lose. Also in the casino is an ignorant and ... Written by

Night of the Demons 2 (1994) (which was also directed by Brian Trenchard-Smith) stars Merle Kennedy, Zoe Trilling and Rod McCary can be spotted in the casino. Rod McCary is dressed as a priest as an homage to that film. See more »

You Can't Hurt me, You should know that by Now! Another great triumph for this odd Series!
After watching Leprechaun 2, I thought the series from this film and on, with it's oddly absurd scenes and horrible dialogue would soon fall flat on it's face. By watching the trailer, I had a good feeling that this film would be good, but I still wasn't sure. Boy, this one was way up in the series. It beats Lep 2. Even at one stage I thought it was nearly better than 1! I don't, but I definitely think this is the top Leprechaun sequel of the series. I believe after this Lep film, they suddenly went down hill, because they couldn't think of anymore ideas. Here's why I think Lep 3 is such an awesome sequel.
The film's music isn't really heard to the best in my opinion, but it works enough to show the film's true colors. I believe they went back to the more campy/black humor slasher style of the original Leprechaun. They had a great plot like the previous and there were some great characters with absolutely awesome-stupid violence. Even the deaths this time round I felt were funnier.
I mostly have to give props to Warwick Davis as the Leprechaun again, as he did a marvelous job with making him more interactive with the human side of life, which includes meeting an Elvis lookalike or sawing fazio on his magic show with a Chainsaw! All of these elements which I positively praise, I think make this sequel a tad stronger than it's predecessor.
Sure like every Leprechaun film so far, many of the plot lines and the story itself don't make sense, but it doesn't matter. These films are an excellent time waster, because of how funny they are.
I highly recommend Leprechaun 3 as it is definitely one of the best in the series by far.
It'll be 7.5/10 schillings out of 10 me las
