Unrelentingly Powerful Horror Film With Uniquely Devastating Vision
An utterly terrific horror film from gifted director Drew Daywaite with screenwriter Anthony C. Ferrante penning a stunning script based on leprechaun legends. The Baton Rouge locations give this motion picture a truly fresh, unique look and add to the atmosphere of unease and surrealism. While this is a terrifying film with some haunting imagery, it is also a story of human relationships, family, and greed. The characterizations by William Devane and Billy Zane are superb and it is indeed their most powerful performances in years. Azure Parsons is also especially good as a courageous deputy who is dedicated to her community. The creature itself is one of the most ghastly and shockingly frightening created for cinema in some time and it's necessary to look away at times because of the intensity of the bloody action. The climax is incredibly shattering and breathtakingly exciting. Overall, a very rewarding cinematic experience from a visionary director.
