Plot
Mark Holton, a character called Lila, and the 1993 Leprechaun country house are the three elements that connect this film to the original one. It ignores all previous sequels, unless you consider that the leprechaun of 25 years ago was one of many leprechauns… and if you somehow don’t notice that Warwick Davis, who played the original monster, isn’t reprising his role. Continuity is problematic.
Solar panels, a drone, Snapchat jokes; I guess this is the future, huh? This is the modest slasher that the films in this franchise never quite were. The murders are fun, implausible, and frequent. The special effects are mostly practical, and they’re convincing. Lep’s puns are awful and he’s extremely vocal. He always was. He steals every scene he’s in, of course.
At some point, you start accepting that David was replaced, despite Porco’s high-pitched voice. This movie is nothing we haven’t seen countless times, but if supernatural comedic slashers are your thing, this is quite the stress reliever. This thing is twenty minutes too long, though. At some point, it starts chasing its own tail. It goes from cliché to cliché until an unpredictable third act.
