Director Mark Jones showed us a darker version of how some of us may have envisioned leprechauns. Myself, I always pictured a wee little fella decked out in bright green doing a merry little (no pun intended... ok, yes, there was) jig around a pot of gold, and got his feelings hurt when you took his gold.
The story these four souls have to tell is a bit more than a little (that never gets old) scary.
Making up the cast of this comedy/horror/fantasy that's rated PG 13 is Warwick Davis as The Leprechaun,
Ken Olandt as Nathan Murphy, Mark Holton as Ozzie, Robert Gorman as Alex and before she was famous... Jennifer Aniston as Tory Reding.
There is violence in this film when the leprechaun says "I wants me gold". When it's not returned after he so politely asked, you can bet he'll take it back... with interest. Armed with magic, a short (too easy) reach and big anger management issues, he polishes the buckles on his wee little ( you thought I was going to do it again didn't you) shoes and goes collecting.
I know the leprechaun wants his gold, but he'll only find 3 gold stars at the end of this rainbow.
