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.

Did You Know?


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 »

Diddley diddley dee, ol skool leprechaun is back. The frontal/coronal plane body slicing scene is gory n not for the squeamish.
28 March 2019 | by Fella_shibbySee all my reviews

This film takes place 25 years after the event of the first film n therefore this is the original sequel. It also explains the whereabouts of the gold n how the Leprechaun returns. Makes more sense than all the other sequels. A group of students decide to spend their summer vacation turning the house (into some eco friendly project) of Tory Reding (Jennifer Aniston), now dead. One of the student is Tory's daughter. The small boy, his elder brother n Tory's father ain't present in this sequel but we hav Ozzie (the guy who swallowed the coin in the original). The sequels never explained what happened to him n the missing coin.

This is no doubt a worthy sequel n much much better than the awful 2014's Leprechaun Origins. The guy who played the leprechaun in this film did a nice job but Warwick Davis will always be remembered.

The rhyming jokes r back, the kills r gory n once again the film is set in proper daylight, shaky stuff n darkly shot scenes r avoided. Ther is one frontal/coronal plane body slicing scene, two decapitations, one decapitation with head smashing, tap rod mouth blasting scene, etc.
