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.
On his 1000th birthday, a mean Leprechaun gets to choose a bride by making her sneeze three times, then she's his...only the bride he chooses is the daughter of his slave (who fouls up the wedding) so Leprechaun must wait until his 2000th birthday to claim the woman of his nightmares. The descendant of the woman he wanted to marry already has a boyfriend: a brave young boy named Cody, who lives with his swindler uncle Morty and together they run a tour company called Darkside Tours. Leprechaun soon wakes up, kills a bunch of people and kidnaps his bride to be. It's soon up to Cody to save her, and only wrought iron can destroy a Leprechaun. Morty has an idea, but it soon goes horribly wrong when he gets too greedy. Cody ventures into Leprechaun's home to save Bridget, but little does he know that a leprechaun's home has many surprises.Written by

In the shot of Cody and Morty sitting at the table, you can clearly see a movie poster on the wall behind them reading "Part II, The body count continues..." This is a poster for Friday the 13th, Part 2 (1981), although the top half is hidden. It is also an inside joke, since this is a horror movie sequel and the body count does continue. See more »
When the Leprechaun manifests an illusion of Bridget taking off her shirt, her skin tone and breast size changes when it's just her in her bra then nude. Also it never shows her nude at the same time as her face. See more »
If you couldn't get into the spirit of the first one, I wouldn't bother with this one.
The Leprechaun series is a special kind of series. I liked that they don't exactly follow the first one. The best comic books don't necessarily keep the same parameters; Silver Age Batman is not Christopher Nolan's. I liked that we are basically getting the same Leprechaun villain with a different back story and different powers/weaknesses. Leprechaun 2 has a couple of different things about it.
I liked the fantasy based background story. The Leprechaun lore is explored in this one; it's more about the Leprechaun than the humans response to him. I'm willing to forgo the strangeness of a 1000 year old Leprechaun making his way from the Old World to the New World. I'm willing to forgo his adaptability to the ways of the modern world though he comes from the Dark Ages.
I liked the silly rhyming lines spliced with unnecessary gore. It's nice to have some light- hearted comedy that takes me from point A to point B. Leprechaun is a threat, the good guys fight him, the story ends.
