          A thousand years ago, the Leprechaun left a bloody trail when he ripped through the countryside in search of his stolen pot of gold. Now he's back in the big city using all of his deadly tricks to snare the girl of his nightmares. His bloody quest becomes more deadly when her boyfriend steals one of the Irish monster's precious gold coins. The town soon discovers two dead bodies and a trail of gold dust leads them to the Leprechaun's lair.

"Cry as you may, cry as you might; its going to be one hell of a wedding night."
               - Leprechaun

         When it comes to the Leprechaun films, one must realize two things:
             - 1. they could be considered more comedy than horror
             - 2. great actors need not apply
         Yeah, they might not have the best acting, but that doesn't mean they aren't entertaining. Take Troll 2 for example. It's ranked as #30 on the IMDB list of worst film of all time. (As of Halloween, 2007) The reason Troll 2 has such a huge cult following is because how unbelievably horrible it is. I'm not saying Leprechaun 2 is as bad as Troll 2, but you can see how films can gain huge popularity without A-grade actors and massive budgets the size of Rosie O'Donnell's ass cheeks. (I hate that fat bitch.)
         After the surprising success of the first Leprechaun, featuring a young Jennifer Aniston, it was inevitable they would create a sequel. One year after it's release, Leprechaun 2 emerged. To be quite honest, I didn't feel a sequel was necessary. Many horror writers attempt to create the next mega-famous villain. (Freddy Krueger, Pinhead, Leatherface, ect.) If a writer succeeds in conjuring the next Jason Voorhees, it's a potential goldmine... and they know that. So time after time we are bombarded with villains who are less than superior and, quite frankly, boring. Amazingly, the unlikely Leprechaun slipped through the bullshit and became a household horror juggernaut! Who would've guessed back in 1990 that a midget (Warwick Davis, also known as Willow) dressed as a leprechaun would rise to the top ranks of horror fame and fortune?
         First of all, Leprechaun 2 has a completely different feel and plot direction than the first. The film begins 1000 years in the past with the leprechaun attempting to claim a bride. If the woman he chooses sneezes 3 times, she will be his slave for eternity. (Lame, I know) After his first attempt fails in the year 994 A.D., he goes dormant in a cave under a huge mysterious tree. His plan is to follow the bloodline of the woman he lost to claim a future relative. Interestingly enough, 1000 years later, there is a young hottie just waiting for his shriveled up leprechaun dick! Of course she protests, people begin to die in bizarre ways and the leprechaun continues his shoe cleaning fetish.
         There is a small body count, but the methods the Leprechaun uses to kill makes up for it. The best one to watch for is when the leprechaun tricks a man into thinking a woman wants him to suck on her tits. In all reality, her tits are actually 2 lawnmowers propped up so the spinning blades are in his face. Think the guy fought the urge to nibble on those puppies? Fuck no! The result is impressive. (See the video clip below.)
         The best acting is Sandy Baron's portrayal of Morty, the drunk owner of the haunted tour attraction "Darkside Tours" in Hollywood. Every scene he appears in is executed perfectly. Besides him, the cast is mediocre. We can't forget Warwick Davis though. There isn't one midget on this planet who could pull off the role of the leprechaun better than he. Well done Warwick!
         Buy the "Leprechaun's Pot of Gore" (to the right) for all the laughs and horrors of the first 5 Leprechaun films. It's 100% worth the money. And it's cheap as fuck!

          - The only film in the series to have an alternate movie title: One Wedding and Lots of Funerals.

          - The guard dog Andretti, is a reference to race car driver Mario Andretti.

          - Body count: 5

          - When Cody and Bridget are talking after the film's prologue, a bus passes by with a billboard poster of Geronimo along with the film Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit being displayed at a local theater.

          - Mistake: A direct quote from the first movie reveals the leprechaun's age to be 600 years, not 2000.
