Trivia

Leprechaun in the Hood (2000) director Rob Spera was involved with this project in its early stages, and came up with two proposed storylines; one set in Venice Beach, and another set on an island during spring break. However, the positive reaction to the previous film resulted in the producers insisting that the film be again set in an inner city with a cast primarily made up of rappers. Not wanting to rehash the previous film, Spera left and was replaced by Steven Ayromlooi. See more »

He should have stayed outta Compton.
10 February 2017 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

Hairdresser from tha hood Emily Woodrow (Tangi Miller) and her ghetto pals discover a chest full of gold coins and, ignoring a warning from a psychic woman to deny their newfound wealth, find themselves threatened by a malevolent leprechaun.

What has made the Leprechaun sequels bearable thus far is their blatant silliness and camp characters, with the focus on twisted humour rather than genuine horror. Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood plays everything a little too straight for its own good, with not nearly enough in the way of knowingly dumb nonsense: the death scenes are forgettable, and with some of the least likable protagonists of the whole franchise (drug smoking, gun toting thugs with few redeeming qualities), Back 2 tha Hood proves to be quite the painful experience.

The funniest scene in the whole sorry mess is when Leprechaun (Warwick Davis, returning for the paycheck) smokes a bong, but we already saw the little guy get stoned in the previous film (which handled the whole 'G' thang with a lot more fun).
