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.
When Dan O'Grady returns to the U.S. after stealing some Irish leprechaun's pot of gold, he thinks he can settle down and enjoy his newfound wealth. He thought wrong. The leprechaun followed him and O'Grady barely gets away with his life, having locked the little monster in his basement. Ten years later, J.D. and his spoiled daughter Tory move in. By accident, the leprechaun is released and almost immediately the annoying creature starts to look for his gold, not displaying any respect for human life.Written by

According to Warwick Davis, the movie was originally planned as a scary kid's film, but the studio thought it would work better as a more adult horror, so inserts were filmed to increase the gore and violence. See more »
After the leprechaun breaks Deputy Tripet's neck, he taps on the dead deputy's head three times... the first two times the head moves in the direction it's being pushed - away from the leprechaun's hand, but the third time the head moves the wrong way, toward the hand, breaking the illusion.

Ah! Try as they will, and try as they might, who steals me gold won't live through the night.

this is one of those movies that is meant to be scary, but really is not. i just happen to love that kind of movie. it's great for sitting down and watching with a group of friends for a good laugh. they figured this out later when making more leprechaun movies and not even trying to make them scary. i love the leprechaun series. warwick davis is my hero. if you're up for a good laugh, i suggest getting a group of your friends together and watching this. you must have a good sense of humor and an open mind. if you enjoy this, watch the rest of them. they get more outrageous as they go. i don't recommend this to people who do not find joy in watching silly movies.
