Storyline

Twenty-five years ago, a young woman and her friends stopped an evil Leprechaun by shoving a four-leaf clover in its mouth and watching its melting body fall into a well in North Dakota. What happened to his pot of gold is anyone's guess. Today, the property is run by the AU Sorority House of a premiere Eco-science college. A group of students decide to spend their summer vacation turning the house into a perfect "green" living abode. And it would be challenging enough, without the depraved Leprechaun they unwittingly revive. Now he's back and determined to get his gold by teaching these ladies a lesson in murder. Except, they aren't having it. The women band together to find his gold and add, taking down the Leprechaun to their course load.

Trivia

News reports online claim Warwick Davis is taking a break from horror movies. He didn't say he was done with Leprechaun though. He mentions at the end of the article he'll do some more horror again when his son turns 18. So there is still a chance he may return again as The Leprechaun in a future sequel. See more »

Super Cheesy
13 December 2018 | by mikedegrootSee all my reviews

Not surprisingly at all, this movie is really, really cheesy. They pretty much all are. This film takes the Leprechaun franchise and introduces it to modern society with every cliche you'd imagine. Smartphones, drones, selfies, and Prius jokes are the only things that are really new here. Making a return are the dumb limericks, bad jokes, cheesy effects, over-the-top kills, and subpar acting.

Overall, if you want to turn your mind off and watch a senseless movie (and who doesn't every once in awhile) you could do much worse. But then again, you could also do much better. If you're a fan of the original movies, you'll probably find some value to it. If you were not a big fan of them, this one won't change your mind at all. Very mediocre and low budget. 5/10
