I’m going to start by saying I stumbled across this on Syfy which has some real gems on there (i.e. Never Let Me Go) and also some…I don’t even know if “dud” is the right word. Anyway, I went on guide to see the lineup and THIS is the playing order for the rest of the day: Leprechaun 5: In the Hood, Leprechaun 4 in Space, Leprechaun 3, Leprechaun 2, Leprechaun, Leprechaun Returns, and BACK to Leprechaun 3.
I’ve so many questions. Why is ‘Back 2 that Hood’ on before ‘In the Hood‘? Why are we then going backwards from there? If we’re going backwards, why is Leprechaun Returns at the end? AND WHY DO WE RESET BACK TO LEPRECHAUN 3?! Who made this lineup? Was it their personal list of the worst to the best? Was it the opposite?
Now if you haven’t seen anything from this franchise, I’ll break it down for you: if you take the Leprechaun’s gold then he’ll kill you and take it back- sometimes at the same time. That’s pretty much it. I think in one he also tries to take a girl as his wife, but I have no idea which one that is (although I probably will by the end of the day).
Are these movies scary? No. It’s actually in my least favorite category of all time; horror comedies. So why am I still watching? Because I had no idea they made so many movies and now I must see all of them…also I’m house sitting and don’t have a whole lot to do.
UPDATE: ‘In the Hood‘ has Ice-T in it!
UPDATE: honestly it’s a personal challenge to finish all these movies at this point because the struggle is getting real
PRO TIP: clovers can make leprechaun’s temporarily vulnerable apparently, but not touching their gold avoids the problem completely
