LEPRECHAUN 4: IN SPACE (Video Release USA 1997)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 2.5|5.0 Starsìì

Leprechaun 4: In
Space fails to keep a steady, energetic pace which, in turn, affects its overall ability to match or exceed the entertainment value of other films in this series. Despite the terrific costuming of Dr. Mittenhead and Metal Head, the lack of steady pacing affects the story’s quality. Even with the efforts by the leprechaun character  (played by Warwick Davis) and the promising premise that the story starts on, it becomes just another film in the series.

Thank you to Director Brian Trenchard-Smith for making the film possible. Thank you to Executive Producers Mark Amin and Andrew Hersch in for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Leprechaun (Warwick Davis), Books (Brent Jasmer), Tina (Jessica Collins), Dr. Mittenhand (Guy Siner), Harold (Gary Grossman), Princess Zarina (Rebecca Carlton), Metal Head (Tim Colceri), Sticks (Miguel A. Nuñez Jr.), Delores (Debbe Dunning), Danny (Mike Cannizzo), Mooch (Rick Peters), Kowalski (Geoff Meed), Lucky (Ladd York), and Computer Voice (voice of James Quinn).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. If the goal is to follow the evil progression of the leprechaun to his final dramatic scenes, this film is a necessary watch to finish the series. Hopefully, the next film in the series, Leprechaun in the Hood, will improve on this film.
