Storyline

He's been in the country side, he's been downtown, he's been to Las Vegas, he's even been in space, now that evil Leprechaun is in DA HOOD! Three young rap artists are looking for a break. They need money to buy some music equipment so they can go to Las Vegas and enter a contest. They meet up with a local pimp named Mack Daddy who agrees to "hook them up", but later declines. The rappers want to get even with him so one night they break into Mack's place and steal a lot of his jewelry, gold, and even the medallion from an ugly looking statue. Shouldn't have done that! Because without the medallion, the statue transforms into the Leprechaun, who goes on a killing spree looking for his missing gold, once again! And the song says it all, "there's nothing' scarier than a Lep' in the hood!" Written by Dylan Self <robocoptng986127@aol.com>

One of those ones it's hard to believe they made....
24 October 2002 | by funkyfrySee all my reviews

Almost unbelievably ridiculous leprechaun horror film is the fifth in this goofy, occasionally funny series. Ice-T steals the little green dude's magic flute (first series appearance), the key to show business success (via hypnotism, apparently). When 3 would-be (and I DO mean would-be) rappers rob the music tycoon's house, they accidentally free the evil leprechaun, who hounds them and creates a group of "zombie fly-girls" to exploit the hood. Some funny moments as the self-described) "lep O.G." takes to ghetto style like a fish to water, puffing weed and lounging with his girls. The lep raps and tears down the house in an overly silly finale.

Somebody might've told Montgomery and Nall that this was a joke, but it probably would have made the movie less fun; T at least is hammin' it up in high style, matching verbs with series veteran Davis with panache. Better than the fourth in the series, not quite as much fun as the first.
