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

The German VHS copy of Fatal Past, includes a rare trailer of Leprechaun 2 that shows scenes that weren't in the final film, including a scene where Bridget is smiling and looking at Ian and telling him she has a boyfriend and doesn't want to make a mistake. another shot at the race track where the Leprechaun uses his magic to let Bridget win a race she was losing, and scenes with Ian and Cody drinking at the bar instead of Morty, another character taking Bridget home and being shoved aside as he tries to kiss her with the Leprechaun watching angry from a tree.

Bridget bends the needle of the awl when she tries to stab the Leprechaun with it. It is bent differently when the Leprechaun picks it up. 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.
