Linden Porco in Leprechaun Returns (2018)The gold obsessed pint-sized Leprechaun at the center of this horror franchise has been to Vegas, the hood, and outer space before getting an abysmal reboot in Leprechaun: Origins. Now he’s back to battle eco-friendly sorority sisters at the very site where it all began in the 1993 film Leprechaun. Following the same trend that began with this year’s Halloween, this sequel ignores everything that came after the first film and centers around Lila, the daughter of Jennifer Aniston’s character Tory Redding. The Leprechaun is revived anew, back with more puns, limericks, and B-movie thrills all for the pursuit of his gold. And over the top gory kills, of course.From the outset, Lila (Taylor Spreitler) is introduced as our lead heroine, but a familiar face quickly outshines her; original film survivor Ozzie (Mark Holton). Ozzie’s affable charm hasn’t faded one bit, despite the 25-year gap between films. He does seem a little wiser, and he provides enough exposition to bring anyone who may not have seen the original film up to speed. Unfortunately, he’s not a main character, and we’re handed off to the rest of the college kids that will later become Leprechaun fodder. Besides Lila, there’s the neurotic leader Rose (Sai Bennett), perpetual drunk Meredith (Emily Reid), and the most likable character aside from Ozzie, Katie (Pepi Sonuga). Along with two fairly disposable male love interests, this is the group in which we spend most of the runtime with.Really, though, you didn’t sign up for another Leprechaun movie for these characters, you signed up for a murderous little green monster. Linden Porco assumes the role made popular by Warwick Davis, and he does an admirable job. Porco is clearly relishing every tongue-in-cheek rhyme, limerick, and sexual innuendo-filled pun, and this version of the character also brings with it a meta-awareness. In one of the Leprechaun’s earliest scenes, he’s admiring himself in a shard of glass and asking, “When did I get so good looking?” An overt wink to the passing of the torch. More importantly, the gore delivers.leprechaun-returns-picture-e1543346459254Director Steven Kostanski, an Astron-6 member and one half of the duo behind The Void, is also a talented special effects artist in his own right. Between his directorial experience and extensive special makeup effect experience, Leprechaun Returns is easily the most polished and most aesthetically pleasing sequel of the franchise. The kills are every bit as outlandish as you’d expect from this series, and they’re practical effect driven. If you want gory irreverence, this is it.DSCF9304-e1543861852609Writer Suzanne Keilly brings that same splatstick sense of humor she honed in her work on Ash vs Evil Dead, and some of the same gags crossover here as well. Outside of tried and true B-movie horror and humor that pummels its characters with gross-out gags and guts at every turn, Keilly also tries to subvert the sorority girl stereotype with her characters. These eco-friendly girls are far more power tool-wielding brainiacs than outright hippie, with only faint traces of familiar airheaded behavior.leprechaun-returnsDespite the splatstick humor and the surprising polish, it still doesn’t quite work. These girls may defy cinematic definition of a stereotypical sorority girl, but they’re still not very interesting characters. When we’re spending most of the runtime with them, it can get a little tedious. The rules of the Leprechaun’s return and his overall goals are also a little loose and vague, making the narrative feel sloppy. More importantly, this film spends a lot of time nodding to the original, but never even attempts to move the series forward. In other words, Leprechaun Returns feels like a more lighthearted redo of the original, but doesn’t add anything new. It even recycles some of the same jokes and visual gags.leprechaunIf you’re a fan of the Leprechaun series, then there’s a lot to appreciate in what Keilly and Kostanski have created in Leprechaun Returns. It never takes itself seriously and delivers on the splatstick gore and outlandish death sequences. Tie-ins to the original film, including the return of Ozzie, serve as loud echoes of why this series has 8 entries. But while there’s a lot of charm to be found, it’s also sloppy in its world-building and doesn’t give us anyone to truly root for. It doesn’t feel like anything we haven’t already seen before, either.

untitledA young couple, Catherine and Francois, are attempting to escape from a figure who eventually catches and drags Francois to his death. It also grabs hold of Catherine just before she arrives at a monolith in a grassland. Four American college friends, Sophie, Ben, Jeni, and David are vacationing at an Irish countryside at Sophie’s behest. The driver, Ian, lets them go at the monolith seen in the beginning. Sophie, who is a history bachelor, takes note of the monolith’s symbol before heading to a local bar with the others, where they meet with a friendly old man, Hamish, who tells them about the history of the village: it was formerly a mining center for gold obtained in a nearby cavern, but when the gold ran out, the population dwindled. The four agree to be taken to a cottage where they can begin hitchhiking to the cavern, though they are wary of Hamish and his grumpy son, Sean. untitledThat night, Jeni investigates a ruckus outside and glimpses a figure sprinting past the window. She wakes the others, who discover that Hamish and Sean had locked them up. A figure suddenly enters the cottage through the fireplace and forcibly takes Jeni’s gold earring. After a brief struggle which sees David’s leg being bitten by the monster, the four escape the cottage and race to the village hall, where they hide in the cellar. From a mythology book, Sophie learns that the monster is a Tuatha Dé Danann, also known as the leprechaun, who owns the gold that the villagers sought after. In return for the gold, the villagers have to sacrifice at least two humans each year as “compensation”. The leprechaun lusts after gold, but it can be repelled by a certain symbol, the same one carved into the monolith, which serves as a barrier beyond which the being cannot get out.

The four are confronted by Hamish, who confirms that the villagers sacrifice tourists each year to avoid having to sacrifice themselves, and Sean, who has grown weary of the unjustified sacrifices and eventually lets them go. The four take the offer to escape by an old woman, Mary, who is revealed to be Hamish’ accomplice. The four are then tied to trees as offerings for the leprechaun. The monster arrives and bites Jeni’s tongue, but David manages to break free and releases the other three, though at the cost of his life. The remaining trio head back to the cottage to set a trap to kill the monster, but the leprechaun tricks Sophie and Ben to strike Jeni with their axes, killing her.  Sophie and Ben fetch Hamish’s truck but is cornered by the leprechaun inside the village hall with the keys. The leprechaun eventually gets hold of Ben and kills him by ripping his spine out. Though cornered by Hamish, Sophie is given a free pass by Sean, who pushes Hamish into the cellar where the leprechaun kills him. Meanwhile, Sophie boards Hamish’ truck but crashes midway while trying to avoid the leprechaun. She resumes her escape on foot and when the leprechaun finds her she distracts it with gold coins, then decapitates it using Francois’ knife, which he had left in the prologue. Sophie finally manages to cross the monolith to safety just as a second leprechaun is revealed, before continuing her escape.Image result for leprechaun originsThis really isn’t such a bad movie after all the negativity its pretty much what I expected! This is nothing like the original Leprechaun movies, there’s no comedy,  no green outfits, this is a straight up serious horror slasher about the true origins of the creature. Why they tried to sell the movie with Dylan Postl I don’t know as you would never really ever guess its him! The blood and gore effects are not bad either, the cast is not that bad either just your usual young bait for the kills, this is a small budget film but its still great fun I think, I liked the serious approach and the fact the leprechaun never spoke and is more now a monster! This is one of the more exciting re-boots in a while!

CAST

Warwick Davis (Harry Potter)
Tangi Miller (The Other Brother)
Laz Alonso (One on One)
Page Kennedy (S.W.A.T.)
Sherrie Jackson (3 Wise Women)
Sticky Fingaz (Blade: The Series)

Image result for leprechaun back 2 da hoodThe film opens with an animated prologue revealing the origins of leprechauns, stating that they were summoned by a king to protect his gold. After the death of the king the Leprechauns returned to their places of origin, all except one (Warwick Davis) who through the ages slowly became corrupted and obsessed with the gold he still guarded. In the present, Father Jacob (Willie C. Carpenter) finds the leprechaun’s gold and intends to build a youth center. Jacob manages to banish Lubdan the Leprechaun, summoning demonic hands which drag him underground, but soon after dies of injuries inflicted by the leprechaun during the fight.
Image result for leprechaun back 2 da hoodOne year later, two friends Emily Woodrow (Tangi Miller) and Lisa Duncan (Sherrie Jackson), have their fortune told when the clairvoyant Esmeralda (Donzaleigh Abernathy) who warns them that they will attain great wealth soon, but it must be denied as it will come at a great price and summon a terrible evil. While having a barbecue at the abandoned youth center construction site with Lisa, their stoner friend Jamie Davis (Page Kennedy) and her ex-boyfriend-turned-drug dealer Rory Jackson (Laz Alonso), Emily falls through a hole and discovers the Leprechaun’s gold in a tunnel where it was hidden by Father Jacob. Evenly splitting up the gold, the quartet of friends use it to fulfill their fantasies, unaware that by taking the gold they have released Lubdan the Leprechaun, who begins stalking the group (killing a guest by impaling his chest with a bong, taking one of his coins at a party held by Jamie, prompting the police to temporarily arrest him). At the salon where Emily works the Leprechaun sneaks in and, after killing a regular customer, Doria, on the massage table by breaking her neck, attacks Emily, who barely escapes and warns Rory and the recently released Jamie, who rush to get to Lisa’s. In her house, Lisa is attacked by the Leprechaun and manages to fight him off for a short while, but is killed when the Leprechaun claws her in the stomach, with her friends finding her body.

While Emily and Jamie want to return the gold, Rory does not and takes off with it; shortly after realizing Rory is gone, Emily is attacked and chased outside by the Leprechaun, but is saved when Rory has a change of heart and comes back for her. Searching for Rory, Lubdan stops by his house and kills Rory’s profligate girlfriend Chanel (Keesha Sharp) by tearing out her jaw, reclaiming the gold she used to make a tooth while Rory and Emily are stopped and harassed by Officers Thompson (Beau Billingslea) and Whitaker (Chris Murray). After the Leprechaun appears and kills the two officers, Emily and Rory escape and regroup with Jamie, only to be confronted by a machine gun wielding group of Rory’s drug-dealing rivals, led by Watson (Shiek Mahmud-Bey) and Cedric (Sticky Fingaz). Planning on killing Rory for infringing on their territory, Watson and his gang are all disposed of by Lubdan, while Emily, Rory and Jamie drive off in Watson’s car (which Lubdan latches to the bottom of for a short while) and go looking for help from Esmeralda.
Warwick Davis and Page Kennedy in Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood (2003)
Told to use four-leaf clovers against the Leprechaun by Esmeralda, Rory laces the hollow-point bullets of his gun with clovers Jamie finds in the marijuana Rory had earlier sold him. When the Leprechaun arrives, Rory shoots him several times with the clover bullets, only for his gun to jam before he can finish the Leprechaun off. Rory and Emily are given the chance to run with the gold when the Leprechaun is distracted by Jamie, who is quickly wounded with a baseball bat to the leg, and Esmeralda dies in a magical duel with the Leprechaun. Followed to the roof of the building, Rory tries fighting Lubdan and is knocked out, though before the Leprechaun can kill him, Emily taunts him by throwing some of his gold into nearby wet cement and lures him into the ruins of the youth center, where she tosses his gold into a furnace before knocking the Leprechaun in with it.
Warwick Davis, Beau Billingslea, and Christopher Murray in Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood (2003)
Believing the Leprechaun is dead, Emily returns to Rory, only for Lubdan to renew his attack on them. Knocking Emily off the roof and leaving her barely holding on, Lubdan taunts her, but is shot several times in the middle of his speech by Rory, who had fixed his gun. Shooting the Leprechaun repeatedly, Rory runs out of bullets, but distracts him long enough for Emily to hit Lubdan with the chest of coins, sending him off the rooftop and into the wet cement below, where the Leprechaun sinks and becomes trapped with his gold. The film then cuts back to the animated prologue like the one at the beginning, and Lubdan digs himself out of the ground, leaving on a cliffhanger.Image result for leprechaun back 2 da hoodLeprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood is silly, but funny in some moments. The problem is that the pothead and drug-dealer characters are non-likable and extremely ambitious, with the exception of Emily and Lisa; therefore the devilish Leprechaun becomes not as bad as he should be. The scene with the leg of the policeman is hilarious. This was the final time Warwick Davis would play the Leprechaun.

Warwick Davis and Barima McKnight in Leprechaun in the Hood (2000)Los Angeles rap artists Postmaster P. (Anthony Montgomery), Stray Bullet (Rashaan Nall) and Butch (Red Grant) accidentally free a Leprechaun that was imprisoned by record producer Mac Daddy O’Nassas (Ice-T) 20 years earlier. The Leprechaun hunts the friends in order to recover his magic flute, which places listeners of its tune in a euphoric trance. After killing some people, such as a reverend, DJ artists, and a hot girl, the Leprechaun reaches the three friends at Postmaster P.’s home. When the rap artists and the Leprechaun engage in a fight, the Leprechaun kills Stray Bullet by making him shoot himself in the mouth with his own pistol while Postmaster P. and Butch stare in horror. Butch visits Postmaster P. at his grandma’s house and convinces him to use a joint laced with four-leaf clovers to strip the Leprechaun of his powers in order to steal back the flute.
Image result for leprechaun in the hood
Postmaster P. and Butch then visit the club in which the Leprechaun has taken up residence. In order to gain entry they dress in drag. Postmaster P then disenchants the Zombie Fly Girls[clarification needed] by having them smoke one of the joints laced with clovers. The duo then goes upstairs to find the Leprechaun who wants the dragged up Postmaster P. to give him a blowjob. Before proceeding any further, the Leprechaun smokes the clover laced joint and passes out. The rap artists take the flute and head downstairs where Mac Daddy shoots Butch, killing him. Postmaster P. retaliates by shooting Mac Daddy three times. No longer under the effects of clover, the Leprechaun comes downstairs and uses magic to pin Postmaster P. against a girder. Postmaster P. then distracts the Leprechaun, allowing the bullet-ridden Mac Daddy to hit the Leprechaun with a wooden chair. Immediately, the Leprechaun uses magic to explode Mac Daddy’s torso, but with the last of his strength, Mac Daddy throws the magic amulet in the air.
Leprechaun in the Hood (2000)Cut to a dark stage with much fog and a silhouetted Postmaster P. rapping about how he’s finally made it. He moves to the forefront where his eyes are hidden behind sunglasses. He removes the sunglasses to show that his irises glow a neon green, which indicates that he is under the Leprechaun’s spell. The camera pans to the front row, in which the Leprechaun sits wearing the same glasses as Postmaster P. The film ends with the Leprechaun rapping about being an evil Irish leprechaun.Leprechaun in the Hood (2000)So, at sequel number five, I think it’s safe to say fans know what they’re getting into with these films and whether or not they’ll find it enjoyable. Leprechaun still has enough moments to get my viewing.

Image result for leprechaun 4On a remote planet, the Leprechaun attempts to court a princess named Zarina, in a nefarious plot to become king of her home planet. The two agree to marry, with each partner planning to kill the other after the wedding night in order to enjoy the marriage benefits (a peerage for the Leprechaun, the Leprechaun’s gold and jewels for the princess) undisturbed.
Image result for leprechaun 4
A platoon of space marines arrive on the planet and kill the Leprechaun for interfering with mining operations. Gloating over the victory, one of the marines, Kowalski, urinates on the Leprechaun’s body. Unbeknownst to Kowalski, the Leprechaun’s spirit travels up his urine stream and into his penis, where his presence manifests as gonorrhea. The marines return to their ship with the injured Zarina, whom they plan to return to her homeworld in order to establish positive diplomatic relations. The ship’s commander, the cyborg Dr. Mittenhand, explains his plans to use Zarina’s regenerative DNA to recreate his own body, which was mutilated in a failed experiment. Elsewhere on the ship, the Leprechaun violently emerges from Kowalski’s penis after he is aroused during a sexual act. The marines hunt the Leprechaun, who outsmarts them and kills most of the crew in gruesome and absurd ways.
Image result for leprechaun 4While pursuing Zarina, the Leprechaun injects Mittenhand with a mixture of Zarina’s DNA and the remains of a blended scorpion and tarantula, before initiating the ship’s self-destruct mechanism. A surviving marine, Sticks, rushes to the bridge to defuse the self-destruct but is stopped by a password prompt. Mittenhand—now a grotesque monster calling himself “Mittenspider”—entangles Sticks in a giant web. Meanwhile, the other survivors confront the Leprechaun in the cargo bay, where they inadvertently cause him to transform into a giant after shooting him with Dr. Mittenhand’s experimental growth ray.
Image result for leprechaun 4The ship’s biological officer, Tina Reeves, escapes to the bridge and rescues Sticks by spraying Mittenhand with liquid nitrogen. The only other surviving marine, Books, opens the airlock so the giant Leprechaun is sucked into space and explodes. Books joins the others at the helm and they deduce that the password is “Wizard,” since Dr. Mittenhand previously compared himself to the Wizard of Oz. After stopping the self-destruct sequence, Books and Reeves kiss, while Sticks looks out the window to see the Leprechaun’s giant hand giving him the finger.UntitledLeprechaun 4 – Leprechaun in Space is a truly awful film. But admittedly this is why I bought it – if you like laughing your head off at how bad a film is then this film really is for you. If you are a fan of previous Leprechaun films and are looking for a good watch then you will also like it.

Image result for leprechaun 3After being pawned to a Las Vegas shop owner, Gupta, the Leprechaun (Davis) jumps on his back and bites off a part of his ear, accusing him of being a greedy thief. He then beats the Gupta’s legs with his walking stick and notices that he’s wearing leather shoes. He removes one and states that he “appreciates a good pair of shoes.” He looks down and notices Gupta’s sock has a hole in it, revealing his big toe. The Leprechaun takes a hold of his foot and says, “Ah, don’t mind if I do!”, and then proceeds to bite the man’s big toe off. Before he can cause him anymore harm, Gupta reveals that he is wearing a medallion that he found on the Leprechaun’s then petrified body. The Leprechaun runs from it and hides in the basement, where Gupta follows him and is shot in the arm with an arrow from a Cupid statue. He runs back upstairs to call for help, but is strangled to death by the Leprechaun via the phone cord. He is found by college student, Scott McCoy, who has fallen for a casino employee named Tammy Larsen. Scott steals Leprechaun’s coin which in this movie has the ability to grant one wish per person. This one wish can do Leprechaun no harm. This is also the first movie in which Leprechaun can be turned into concrete if forced to wear a medallion.untitled
After striking rich at the casino, Scott is robbed by employees (Loretta and Fazio) and attacked by Leprechaun. He is able to throw Leprechaun out of the hotel window, but in the process is bitten. In the meantime, casino employees (Mitch, Loretta, Fazio) pass the coin around making wishes. Mitch wishes he could sleep with Tammy, Loretta wishes for a new body, and Fazio wishes that he were the greatest magician in the world.
Image result for leprechaun 3Obviously Leprechaun has survived the fall, and, one by one, he kills them off. Mitch is killed after Tammy leaves the room. A porno comes on the television and starts speaking his name. A woman comes out of the television and starts kissing Mitch. Mitch hears the Leprechaun on the television and looks up. When he looks back at the woman, she is a robot. She electrocutes him.

Loretta wishes for her twenty year old body. When confronted by the Leprechaun she tells him she doesn’t have the coin anymore. In turn he blows her up by making her breasts, butt, and lips bigger and bigger, until she explodes. Fazio’s death was the worst of all. He wished to be the best magician in the world. During his show the Leprechaun shows up. Everyone thinks he is part of the show. They do the man getting sawed in half trick. The only thing is the Leprechaun has a real chainsaw. Everyone in the crowd said they wanted the trick to be done, they just didn’t know that there would be that much blood and gore. The whole crowd was disgusted when they saw Fazio was dead, and he was killed right in front of them.  Scott has begun to turn into a Leprechaun himself from being bitten and must fight his urges to steal Leprechaun’s pot of gold. In the end Tammy and Scott burn Leprechaun’s gold, which in this movie has the ability to kill him.Warwick Davis, Tom Dugan, and Roger Hewlett in Leprechaun 3 (1995)Of all the “Leprechaun” films, I found this one the funniest. You’ve got to love his little sayings and remarks. I found the plot entertaining from start to finish, with swell acting and directing, not to mention the comedy! If you want to pick a funny horror flick, rent “Leprechaun 3”, you won’t be disappointed.

Image result for leprechaun 2On March 17, 994 A.D., The Leprechaun is a thousand years old. Since that is his birthday, he can choose any woman to be his bride. He picks a young girl of the O’Day family. The Leprechaun describes the girl he has chosen to O’Day, but when O’Day sees that the girl is in fact his daughter, he intervenes with “God bless you” therefore denying the Leprechaun his bride, as the creature can marry any girl who sneezes three times, provided no one says “God bless you.” The Leprechaun captures, tortures and tells O’Day that he will marry his descendant in a thousand years time on St Patrick’s Day, before killing O’Day.Image result for leprechaun 2One thousand years later, St Patrick’s Day in modern-day Los Angeles, a petulant sixteen-year-old girl named Bridget Callum, a descendant of the O’Day bloodline, has gotten into a fight with her boyfriend, Cody Ingalls. Cody frequently has to break their dates in order to support Morty, his alcoholic scam artist uncle. The Leprechaun steals some whiskey and a gold tooth from a homeless man and a gold ring off the finger of Tim Streer, a talent agent. After all of this, he follows Bridget to her house, where a boy named Ian attempts to persuade her into letting him in; she refuses with a swift elbow to his ribs. The Leprechaun then creates an illusion that fools Ian into believing that Bridget is asking him to kiss her, while in actuality, they are a pair of lawnmower blades that start up after Ian shoves his face into them.Image result for leprechaun 2Shortly afterwards, Cody knocks on the door and apologizes, offering flowers, which causes Bridget to sneeze all over his shirt. The third time she sneezes, Cody begins to say “God bless you,” but is unable to complete the blessing when the Leprechaun attempts to strangle him with a telephone cord. After a struggle, the Leprechaun disappears with Bridget, losing one of his gold coins, which Cody soon finds. The police soon arrive, find Bridget missing, Ian dead, and a note from Cody at the scene, leading them to get an arrest warrant out for him. Cody returns to Morty’s house and tells him what happened; Morty says he’s crazy until the Leprechaun breaks in and they barely escape. Morty and Cody then go to a bar, which is filled with people celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. While there, Cody is given a piece of chocolate in a gold wrapper by one of the bar’s patrons. The Leprechaun appears and Morty challenges him to a drinking contest. While the Leprechaun downs whiskey, Morty is actually drinking soda and water. The Leprechaun eventually becomes extremely drunk, so much to the point he can barely use his magic. He distracts Morty and Cody by turning on a jukebox with his powers, leading him to get away. He goes to a coffee shop, where he sobers up. Upon being asked for payment for the coffee, the Leprechaun thinks the waiter wants to take his gold and kills him. Meanwhile, Cody and Morty break into the go-kart racetrack since the office contains a huge safe on wheels made of wrought iron, the only thing that can harm the Leprechaun. Cody traps the Leprechaun inside, but Morty takes advantage of the opportunity to claim three wishes and locks Cody in a store room.Image result for leprechaun 2His first is for the Leprechaun’s pot of gold, which appears in Morty’s stomach, grotesquely stretching it. Morty wishes for the Leprechaun out of the safe for help, and, for his third wish, asks for the pot of gold out of him. The Leprechaun cuts Morty’s stomach open and pulls out the pot, killing Morty. Just then, as Cody breaks out of the store room, a security guard, who has responded to a silent alarm that Morty tripped, enters. Before he can arrest Cody, however, the officer is lured onto the track by the Leprechaun’s impersonation of Bridget and is run over twice and killed by the little green man in his own custom go-kart.Image result for leprechaun 2He attempts to kill Cody for his gold coin, but Cody realizes that as long as he holds it, the Leprechaun cannot harm him, leading him to run to the Leprechaun’s lair to attempt rescuing Bridget. Before he can find Bridget, however, Cody is attacked by the skeleton of William O’Day carrying out the Leprechaun’s bidding. After he defeats the skeleton and overcomes many illusions, he finally stumbles upon Bridget in the Leprechaun’s room with a gold collar on her neck. Suddenly, the Leprechaun corners Cody, demanding that he return his coin. Bridget, who has been picking at her collar with a broken awl, breaks it off, throws it at the Leprechaun’s head, and runs, as Cody follows. The Leprechaun dusts off his hat and pursues them both. In their mad dash to find an exit, Bridget and Cody get separated. When they meet up again, Bridget convinces Cody to leave the coin behind. When Cody is reluctant to part with the coin, the only thing that is keeping the Leprechaun from harming them, Bridget kisses him, so Cody hands her the coin.Image result for leprechaun 2The Leprechaun, who was pretending to be her, knocks Cody across the room and then goes after Bridget. Suddenly, Cody jumps up and shoves an iron crowbar through the Leprechaun’s chest, pointing out that the gold coin was actually the gold-covered milk chocolate. Together, Cody and Bridget run out of the lair, and the Leprechaun explodes behind him. Bridget asks Cody how he knew that the illusionary Bridget wasn’t really her kissing him, and Cody informs her that her kisses are different. She then asks him whether he’s going to keep the coin. “It’s not worth it,” Cody replies and tosses it on the ground. They then share a laugh and walk home.Image result for leprechaun 2Leprechaun 2 has much more great humor, like the scene where he and Cody’s uncle are drinking, and it was just so hilarious to see a leprechaun drunk. “Drink all you want… drink all you can… you can’t beat me… ’cause I’m a lepre-can! Mmmph! Chaun!” LOL! I loved that line. Watch this movie if you are in the correct mood or enjoy the series. Don’t take it so seriously, otherwise, you’re looking for the wrong kind of movie.
