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 a distant planet, a power hungry Leprechaun kidnaps a Dominian princess, Princess Zarina, and plans to make himself king, but not if a bumbling brigade of space marines have anything to say about it. Their commander is a mad scientist by the name of Dr. Mittenhand, who's half machine thanks to one of his "experiments". Once on the planet, Leprechaun is blown up, but quickly is reborn through one of the marines (ala Alien) and wreaks havoc aboard the ship, meanwhile Dr. Mittenhand plans to use the princess for his experiments to make himself whole again. But now, after many of the marines are killed, Leprechaun turns Dr. Mittenhand into a grotesque monster and plans to blow up the ship. The remaining marines have to stop his evil plans and blow *him* up. Written by

According to Dave Tripet, the executive in charge of production for the first three movies, this film originally started out as a spoof of Apollo 13 (1995). A senior Trimark executive saw the promo art for Apollo 13 and immediately had artwork made up replacing Tom Hanks's face on the poster with the Leprechaun's face, and this is what started the script work for the movie.

The cut that Dr. Mittenhand puts on Tina's thigh is viable before he attacks her. In fact it is first seen when her pants are taken off her in the crawlspace. See more »

Possibly the best movie involving a Leprechaun in space...Ever!
Leprechaun in space has all the qualities for this years Oscars... despite the fact that it did not come out this year. The leprechaun displayed so much soul in the film i forgot that he was trying to kill at all. i even cried when he blew up for the third time, never mind that they used the same footage as the first two times he blew up. Brilliance pure brilliance. Not once did I wish for my eyes to be gouged out as i did while watching the atrocious "Astro Zombies." Ever scene captures your heart, from when the leprechaun comes out of a mans penis, to the totally unnecessary breast shot. The world would be a better place If there were more films like Leprechaun and less like "Trucks." Four out of Four puke buckets.
Also check out "Leprechaun in the Hood" and the fantastic miniseries "The Voyage of Mimi."
