Leprechauns = Not Scary?

You know, I have to be honest with you. I really like Jennifer Aniston.
I'm 100% on her side in the whole Brad Pitt/Angelina/J.A. love triangle. I also loved her as Rachel Green and I loved her in Picture Perfect. What can I say? I'm on team Aniston all the way.



Oh goodness.

I mean, I guess the plot sounded good on paper, right?

Your luck just ran out is a pretty clever tagline.

And this picture looks pretty creepy:

...so what went wrong? Why am I not scared of this film?

I mean, it is kind of likeable, at best. Watch the trailer and tell me it doesn't soften your heart just a little...poor town in South Dakota:

And, I'm sure people must have liked it, because there were 6 total films, all taking place in different zany locations like South Dakota, Los Angeles, Las Vegas....and my personal favorite with Leprechaun 4 taking us on a trip to outer space...look out Jason Voorhees:

and 2 "Leprechaun in the Hood" films...taking place in Compton...starring Ice-T and Coolio...as themselves...yikes...

here's a clip from Leprechaun 3 that I personally find outrageously awesome:

his rhyming is incredible....

and his accent is also something to be reckoned with.

You know what...Leprechaun isn't scary. it's not scary at all. by any stretch of the imagination. but it's pretty ridiculous and hilarious, and therefore...Monster Bash likes it! It is scary how ridiculous it is.

This website shows the different Leprechauns and their personalities, my favorite is Killian Skywalker...who's yours?

Connie also has created an homage to the Leprechaun series at her Leprechaun center.

Seriously, the more I research this film, the more I'm starting to love it. It's the C.H.U.D. of the now. I love that St. Patty's Day has been included into the horror film genre...when will Easter get on the boat?

As I mentioned the other day, the fact that you have made "Lep" the official abbreviation for "Leprachaun" makes it easier to talk about leprachauns because instead of saying the word, which is often really tedious we can just say "Lep." Like..."Hey...don't go to Ridgewood...there's a leps there."

seriously, the best part about leprechaun in the hood is when he rhymes. but the best one that he says on more than one occasion is, 'lep in the hood come to do no good'! Buah-hahaha!!!

i do like old leprechaun movies though. like number 1 and 2. especially the one with jennifer aniston. i'm on her team too!
