Trivia

Star Dylan Postl stated that he had never seen any of the previous Leprechaun (1993) films, and he has since chosen not to view any, as he wanted his performance to be his own creation, without the influence of the prior films. See more »

Goofs

Cat growl, laughable horror.
27 August 2014 | by EDMPinguSee all my reviews

Oh my god, i have never seen such rubbish. I actually took the time, to write to Zach Lipovsky and explain what the problem was with the movie ( did i call it a movie? , i mean, extended trailer to another B movie ).Oh IMDb labels it as a horror.. Really? Lost boys came out years ago, was a 15, and had way more horror attraction than this movie. Do yourself a favour, and don't pay to watch it, wait until it comes out in the bargain bin. That was the worst 90 minutes of my life, wasted. I'm not sure what anyone else thinks of this film, but Blair witch was better. Sorry, it's my first review, and i will apologize for the lack of substance. Feel free to watch it yourselves, and um ... have something else to do while you're watching it.
