Storyline

He's been in the country side, he's been downtown, he's been to Las Vegas, he's even been in space, now that evil Leprechaun is in DA HOOD! Three young rap artists are looking for a break. They need money to buy some music equipment so they can go to Las Vegas and enter a contest. They meet up with a local pimp named Mack Daddy who agrees to "hook them up", but later declines. The rappers want to get even with him so one night they break into Mack's place and steal a lot of his jewelry, gold, and even the medallion from an ugly looking statue. Shouldn't have done that! Because without the medallion, the statue transforms into the Leprechaun, who goes on a killing spree looking for his missing gold, once again! And the song says it all, "there's nothing' scarier than a Lep' in the hood!" Written by Dylan Self <robocoptng986127@aol.com>

Leprechaun: Death to he who sets a Leprechaun free. Steal his gold, it will corrupt your soul, you see. For many a moon the legend has grown, death toll increases, solution unknown. Beware the evil wanderer in search of his loot, lest you suffer the wrath of his golden flute. Flee while you can, the future's not good- for no one is safe from a Lep in the Hood!

Leprechaun in da ghetto, everybody!
27 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Why? WHY? WHY??!!! First of all, why do they keep making these movies? The first two movies were okay with me but going to Vegas and being in space, get the hell out of here. In the first three movies, the leprechaun chased only white people in the country side (Leprechaun) for a pot of gold; for a bride in California (Leprechaun 2), and more gold in Vegas (Leprechaun 3). I couldn't stand to see Leprechaun 4 in Space where even Debbe Dunning of Home Improvement couldn't get me to watch that piece of crap. Now the Leprechaun's back in Los Angeles in the ghetto side where a bunch of rapper wannabe's get in the little green guy's way while he's doing justice to those that get in his way regardless if they're good or bad.

The only noticeable person was Ice-T as a greedy executive while Warwick Davis probably needed the money to play the green guy again.

Skip this movie!
