When Emily Woodrow and her friends happen on a treasure chest full of gold coins, they fail to heed the warnings of a wise old psychic, who had foretold that they would encounter trouble with a very nasty and protective Leprechaun.
It was a normal night in Las Vegas, Nevada, all the lights were flashing brightly, until a man with one hand, one eye, and one leg walks into a pawn shop with a statue of a hideous looking Leprechaun. The owner claims it's a good luck charm. The statue also wore a medallion around it's neck.

The Leprechaun runs riot in Las Vegas.

Also featuring a jaw-dropping human-to-leprechaun transformation, and the goriest death so far when a magician literally gets cut in half! Yuck. Plenty of funny one-liners ("Do you have Health Insurance?" "Yes, Green Cross!") and a great cleavage-revealing costume worn by the female lead for 90% of the film make this well worth your time. What was the point in the medallion though, or the completely irrelevant Elvis stand-off? Oh well.. 5/10
