Movie Info

Dan O'Grady (Shay Duffin) steals 100 gold coins from a leprechaun (Warwick Davis) while on vacation in Ireland. The leprechaun follows him home, but Dan locks the murderous midget in a crate, held at bay by a four-leaf clover. Ten years later, J.D. Redding (John Sanderford) and his daughter, Tory (Jennifer Aniston), rent O'Grady's property for the summer. When their new neighbors accidentally release the leprechaun, he goes on a murderous rampage to reclaim his gold.

Audience Reviews for Leprechaun

    As is very frequently the case with horror franchises, the Leprechaun series started out with a pretty silly premise, but took itself quite seriously, then quickly devolved into parody as the sequels came out. That being the case, this first Leprechaun movie is actually not very jokey (at least, not when you consider the fact that the villain of the piece is a three-foot-tall Irishman with a penchant for skipping, rhyming and polishing shoes). The effects are hit and miss, the acting is not very good, and a lot of the movie is shot too dark to make out properly, but Leprechaun really is an okay horror movie.

    Ridiculous, stupid fun. The creature effects on the Leprechaun are actually very well done.

    "No one takes a leprechaun's gold!" The B-horror film Leprechaun is cheesy as hell and unbelievably stupid. Sadistic and wisecracking, Leprechaun is a third rate Freddy Krueger rip-off. Only, there's no real element of danger or fear with the Leprechaun character; as he's a f***ing joke. However, this does mark the film debut of Jennifer Aniston who has a star quality about her, even in this schlock. Warwick Davis on the other hand, chews up the scenery as the Leprechaun. A complete train-wreck, Leprechaun is epically bad.

    Awful film, but it has a campy value.
