Storyline

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 ...

Low-Class Fun Comedy-Horror Flick
6 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This gets decent marks only for one reason: it's entertaining. Other than that, it has no redeeming value, is classless, has poor acting and even poorer dialog....but sure was fun to watch a couple of times.

The Leprechaun (Warwick Davis) has some very funny lines and rhymes and is the undisputed star of the show. There are a lot of special effects used for both comedy and for horror. This is the third of about four of these type of films, and the only one I thought worth keeping, mainly for the laughs. Eventually, the quality of the tape was so bad I canned it. Maybe I should check out the DVD, which was subsequently released.

Lee Armstrong provided the female lead role and she was a pretty woman but obviously not much of an actress and few people have heard of her before or since.

If you want something stupid but entertaining, a good mix of horror and comedy, this little dirty Leprechaun should fill the bill....but only this edition. Don't bother with the rest in the series.
