As with plenty of other horror franchises that ran out of steam, the "Leprechaun" series takes its fourth entry and haphazardly decides to throw it "in space," if you couldn't tell from the awkward sounding title. While "Leprechaun 3" showcased a film in transition from a 'little horror' to 'no horror,' returning director Brian Trenchard-Smith seems to completely abandon the horror elements and drive the film straight into comedic territory. To be honest, this film is purposefully made so awkward and bad that it just might end up being the one I watch the most out of sheer hilarity. While the concept of a killer leprechaun terrorizing a massive group of inept marines on a space ship seems ridiculous, know that everyone involved with "Leprechaun 4" seemed to think so too.
Whether you like it or not, "Leprechaun 4" has nothing to do with any of the previous films. While the first three entries had small connectors between them (as asinine as they might have been), this film simply says 'fuck it' and just starts anew. This time around our greedy and violent villain is intent on marrying a space princess so that he may kill her father and then her to become a king to satiate his greed. Yet, some silly marines are intent on stopping him from his intergalactic bride and he has to go through the old slasher routine to get his way.
