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>

If the Leprechaun was turned to stone in the 1970s and was not reverted to normal until present day, that would make the events of Leprechaun (1993), Leprechaun 2 (1994), and Leprechaun 3 (1995) (Leprechaun 4: In Space (1996) was set in the future) impossible, as the Leprechaun would still have been stone.

Worst. Movie. EVER!
28 April 2002 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

My friends and I rented this movie thinking it might be fun to laugh at a bad movie...but this movie is so bad it's not even laughable. It's, plain and simple, the worst movie ever -- bad acting, bad directing, bad writing, bad everything. I'm ashamed to say I saw it and I think I'll spend the rest of my life purging it from my memory.
