  • - Why do you look so short?

  • Audiences love lots of corn.

  • (guitar riff)

  • - You know this is the fourth Patty's Day

  • since I started doing this show

  • and somehow I've never gotten into

  • the Leprechaun franchise

  • which is a shame really because it's the most

  • nineties franchise of them all.

  • It had all the nineties cliches.

  • There was one in L.A.,

  • one in Vegas, one is space, two in the hood,

  • and the first one was the one with Jennifer Aniston.

  • Now that the franchise has gone full halloween

  • and created a direct sequel to the original film

  • ignoring the canon established by all

  • those movies in between,

  • it seems only fitting to spend this St. Patrick's Day

  • reviewing the series.

  • Now, it all started when creator Mark Jones

  • decided to make the jump from

  • TV to film and setting his sights on horror

  • decided to make a cross between the Lucky Charms mascot

  • and Critters,

  • which when you hear it,

  • makes so much sense

  • regarding the tone of these movies.

  • The first one was a pretty straight forward

  • movie about an evil leprechaun.

  • Guy steals a pot of gold from said leprechaun.

  • Leprechaun follows him back to the U.S. and

  • gets trapped in a crate.

  • Years later, Jennifer Aniston's family moves in

  • and her friend mistakenly frees him.

  • And things get all kinds of murdery from there.

  • And like I said, it's exactly what you expect

  • from an evil leprechaun movie.

  • For the second one, things step up there nineties-ness

  • because nothings said nineteen nineties like

  • setting a sequel in Los Angeles.

  • But of course let's also break out the old standard of

  • supernatural being stumbles on a girl in modern times who

  • is a descendant of their ancient love.

  • One of my other favorite things about the Leprechaun series

  • is that they give zero (bleep) about

  • continuity film to film.

  • He gets blown up in the first one

  • impaled on rote iron in second one

  • and then the third one opens up with him

  • having been transformed into a statue

  • thanks to a magic medallion.

  • It's like they were actively trying to be

  • the tropiest horror series of all time.

  • And they actually might have been.

  • Number three opens up in Vegas and the leprechaun,

  • in statue form obviously,

  • has been sold to the Pawn Stars or something.

  • And guess what they do right away?

  • They take off the medallion so he comes back to life

  • and goes on a rampage

  • searching for gold coins in Las Vegas.

  • This was also the first time one of the sequels went

  • direct to video which is also one of the most

  • nineties things you can do.

  • Now I am pretty sure that there's a rule

  • that if you are a horror franchise

  • that operated in the late nineties

  • you had to go to space.

  • Jason did it, Pin Head did it.

  • So I can't blame the Leprechaun franchise here.

  • They were just following the rules.

  • But what they did when they got there?

  • Oh boy (sigh)

  • Yeah, Leprechaun in Space.

  • It takes place one hundred years in the future

  • and the leprechaun is trying to hook up

  • with an alien princess?

  • This whole movie is insane.

  • At one point the leprechaun transforms himself into the clap

  • and then bursts out of a guys penis.

  • And honestly, I don't know what else I can say

  • about a movie where that happens.

  • So, part five.

  • Yeah, also bonkers.

  • And despite being made in 2000

  • it's still super nineties.

  • It features Ice-T as Mack Daddy Onasis

  • coming across the leprechaun in the statue form

  • from the beginning of Part 3

  • and stealing a golden flute to become

  • a successful music producer.

  • I'm going to be honest here.

  • I haven't seen this thing in a very long time

  • but even the synopsis is problematic.

  • And the worst part is even after the

  • leprechaun rap at the end

  • yeah you heard me

  • they still decide they need a second

  • Leprechaun in the Hood movie.

  • Now in all fairness, Leprechaun Back to the Hood

  • You know what?

  • No.

  • They used the number two and spelled the with an a there.

  • There's no fairness.

  • Let's just move on because by the time they

  • finished that one, we were even at a point where

  • Warwick Davis was done with the franchise.

  • And so was everyone else.

  • There was one weird reboot thing with

  • Hornswoggle from the WWE

  • but raise your hand if you saw that one.

  • Exactly.

  • However, that brings us to the latest entry

  • which is the one that's going full Halloween.

  • It picks up twenty five years after the original film

  • and forgets all the sequels

  • which I think is really something we should all be jealous

  • of its ability to do.

  • Leprechaun Returns is actually a Sci-Fi movie.

  • Not the genre but the TV network

  • and for some reason

  • they released it just before Christmas.

  • It has Lila,

  • daughter of Jennifer Aniston's Tory from the first film

  • heading back to the cabin

  • again from the first film

  • because her and her friends want to tear down and

  • build a sorority house in the middle of nowhere.

  • Despite warnings from Ozzy played again by Mark Holton

  • who will always be Chubs from Teen Wolf to me,

  • the girls inadvertently awaken the leprechaun

  • who proceeds to go on a murderous rampage

  • searching for his gold.

  • You know, really getting back to the basics.

  • Which after the rest of the movies,

  • is actually a welcomed change.

  • Now like I said

  • this aired on Sci-Fi in December

  • so you can't be blamed for missing it

  • but now is as good a time and

  • arguably a more seasonable time

  • as any to check it out.

  • And let us know what you think.

  • Is the latest film a return of Leprechaun?

  • What's your favorite movie in the franchise?

  • Let us know in the comments

  • Or remember Fright Hype and Crypt TV are

  • all over the internet.

  • Until next time keep the horror on the screen

  • and off the street.

- Why do you look so short?
