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>

Goofs

If the Leprechaun was turned to stone in the 1970s and was not reverted to normal until present day, that would make the events of Leprechaun, Leprechaun 2, and Leprechaun 3 impossible, as the Leprechaun would still have been stone (this time line error does not affect the events depicted in Leprechaun 4: In Space, as that movie took place in the future).

Quotes

[first lines]
Leprechaun: Death to he who sets a Leprechaun free. Steal his gold, it will corrupt your soul, you see. For many a moon the legend has grown, death toll increases, solution unknown. Beware the evil wanderer in search of his loot, lest you suffer the wrath of his golden flute. Flee while you can, the future's not good- for no one is safe from a Lep in the Hood!

Textbook Definition of 'Flawless'
23 February 2005 | by FiletMignonMediumRareSee all my reviews

My gratitude towards the convivial director, Rob Spera (Stray Bullet , Midnight Temptations 2). Leprachaun in the Hood provides viewers interested in all genres with a nail-biting plot. Several aspects, from make-up work to writing, made this film a Must-See.

First off, my hat goes off to Warwick Davis (Leprachaun , Willow) for staying in this knee-slapping series. Davis, who plays a nefarious anti-diffident Leprachaun, pitches in catchy rhymes throughout the film which add a jocular feeling to the film. Davis massacres his rivals in draconian fashions. For example, Davis uses a 'gust of wind' to penetrate a hole through a character's chest. After this instance, viewers may contemplate as to what Leprachaun's next killing style may be. Even though scenes may be laconic, Doug Hall makes his writing debut by creating original scenes which put the viewers on the edge of their seats.

Also, the make up crew does such a prestigious job on Leprachaun, which leaves viewers in a state of consternation as to how the stymie was done. If you think Gollum was good, think twice. Warwick simply has congenital qualities which make him master the role of Leprachaun.

Tremedous acting performances are contributed by Ice-T and the enigmatic appearance of Coolio. The movie is a straight-out battle between good and evil. The characters have no fervents for each other nor any rueful feelings. The film conveys quite an inspirational message: Avarices will ultimately enervate our souls and bring an egregious life to the one(s) who seek those avarices.
