[A to Z] Leprechaun
I should have seen LEPRECHAUN and the sequels before the last year or so. I was a huge B-movie horror fan and I would watch them regardless of how corny they might sound. Who am I kidding? I still do that. Anyway, I was in the Army when this movie first came out. It should have been right up my alley. The premise is pretty simple; after his gold is taken from him, the leprechaun resorts to whatever means he can to get it back.
There have been eight entries into this series. I own all of the movies on DVD because I found a bundle of the original 7 for $7.50 and Leprechaun Returns as a separate DVD for $9.99. If that is not completely accurate then the prices were close to that. At just over $2 a film I can not really complain two much but there are some questionable entries into the franchise. That seems to be the way of things with horror.
I am not disappointed with having watched this entire film series. I would like for them to be remade. If the studio could provide a decent budget, play up the actual mythological aspects, and focus more on horror instead of the cornier side then they could be very good.
