Our Score
This tacky debasement of a charming Irish legend is too juvenile for adult tastes and too gruesome for children. Three teenagers free nasty leprechaun (Warwick Davis) who's been trapped in a crate in a farmhouse for ten years and he then goes on the gory search for his stolen pot of gold. Made up of nothing but low points - the nadir being mentally disabled Mark Holton being lacerated in the face by a silver shoe buckle - the unfunny repartee, forced whimsicality and endless running around with characters shrieking "There are no such things as leprechauns!" and "Gimme back my gold!" add shoddy insult to blarney injury. Friends star Jennifer Aniston appears in this bargain-basement exploitation film, something she would doubtless prefer to forget.

Summary

A teenager and her father move into a house where a leprechaun was imprisoned by a man who had stolen his gold. The mischievous monster is accidentally freed from his captivity and embarks on a killing spree as he attempts to recover the treasure that was taken from him. Horror, starring Warwick Davis and Jennifer Aniston.
