LEPRECHAUN (Theatrical Release USA 1993)


Ben Meyers’ rating: 2.7|5.0 Starsìì

Leprechaun has the class act of Warwick Davis depicting a really evil leprechaun. He has an excellent supporting cast. The film made an eight to one box office intake and seems to range in an almost cult classic range of film partially due to the dark side of this leprechaun...no child’s play or nimble tricks here...this leprechaun is down to do business. Kudos to Holly Davis for terrific costume design and the makeup department for its outstanding artistry.

Storyline

When J.D. Reding (John Sanderford) and his daughter, Tory Reding (Jennifer Aniston), move into an old farmhouse, workers accidentally set free a Leprechaun (Warwick Davis) who has been deprived of his bag of gold.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Mark Jones for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producer Mark Amin for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Nathan Murphy (Ken Olandt), Ozzie (Mark Holton), Alex (Robert Hy Gorman), Dan O’Grady (Shay Duffin), Shop Owner (John Voldstad), Mrs. O’Grady (Pamela Mant), Sheriff Cronin (William Newman), Deputy Tripet (David Permenter), Dispatcher (Raymond C. Turner), and Waitress (Heather Kennedy).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. It’s good to see Warwick Davis in this lead role and to see Jennifer Aniston in some of her earlier works. This film is not really a horror film, although it has its moments. The movie has five sequels starring Warwick Davis as the leprechaun. If one is looking for real horror, however, better watches are Saw and Saw II.
