This film starts off with a man named Daniel O’Grady who has just came back home from a trip to Ireland. When he gets home he tells his wife that he is rich because he caught a leprechaun and that the rule is if you catch a leprechaun he must show you where his pot of gold is. After he tells his wife about the gold he goes to bury it. What he didn’t know is that the leprechaun hid in one of his suitcases and went inside the house and when the wife came back in he killed her by pushing her down the stairs. Daniel O’Grady comes back in the house and sees the leprechaun and runs to his room to get his gun and a four-leaf clover, which happens to be the leprechauns weakness. Eventually he is able to trap the leprechaun in a box and put the four-leaf clover on the top of the box which traps him inside. He then tries to burn the leprechaun and the house to the ground but has a stroke which leaves the leprechaun trapped inside the box and held captive by the four-leaf clover. The movie then skips ten years into the future where a guy named J.D Redding and his daughter Tory rent that house for the summer. When they arrive at the house they meet three people that are painting the house whose names are Nathan, his brother Alex, and their friend Ozzie. Ozzie went inside to go to the bathroom and when he comes out he hears the leprechauns voice who is making himself sound like a little kid so someone will help him. As Ozzie goes to the crate to help him he knocks off the four-leaf clover which allows the leprechaun to break out of the box. After that Ozzie eventually finds the gold and the leprechaun starts to make his way around the farmhouse and causes trouble with all of them. This is when we start to see how clever the leprechaun is with his ability to change his voice and his magical powers. We also start too see some kills in this movie and they are pretty good. Overall I really loved this film I thought that they made the story line very creative and putting legends and evil leprechauns into a movie just made it even better. This wasn’t a straight horror movie that will scare the shit out of you it is more of a horror/comedy. The movie is a little scary and has good kill scenes in it but also has hilarious moments that will make you laugh your ass off. The horror and comedy in this movie was combined very well. If you haven’t seen this movie yet I would recommend that you go watch it you won’t regret it. It is a movie that you will get a good laugh and a nice scare.The acting was also very good in this movie and is actually Jennifer Aniston’s first film, but I liked the acting from everyone in this movie. All of the events lead up to a good ending so don’t miss it and make sure you watch the movie. Will the leprechaun get his gold? You have to watch the movie to find out.
I give this movie a 7/10
