While "Leprechaun" might have earned its franchise by being a film that was a ton of fun and slightly scary at the same time, the formula was already running thin by the time that "Leprechaun 2" came out. That being said, this is a long living franchise and I wasn't looking forward to spending a whole lot of time with the films. Yet here I am writing my review for the third film whose sole foundation is that we get to see our titular villain stalking around Vegas and killing folks in even more ridiculous ways. Take it for what it is, but "Leprechaun 3" is still a terrible, terrible film.
"Leprechaun 3" tries to hold onto the formula by having our monstrous and greedy leprechaun wind up in Vegas as the statue he was left as in the end of of the first sequel. Once again we are treated to him losing a piece of his gold from his stash as he's unleashed by an inept pawn shop owner to kill his way through a low end casino called "The Lucky Shamrock." Ironically, "Leprechaun 3" makes the second look like it tried with its relatively new spin on him finding a bride. This one goes back to the basics with him sniffing out his missing shilling (yes, he actually can smell it and yes, he does rhyme shilling with killing about a dozen times) and killing anyone that gets in his way.
|Yes, that's her outfit for most of the film.|
|I wonder if I can find that statue prop to buy on Ebay.|
|The essence of this film in one picture.|
