Leprechaun Returns (2018)

A direct sequel to the original film, this time with Linden Porco in the main role. Even Taylor Spreitler’s (Amityville: The Awakening) character is portrayed as the daughter of Jennifer Anniston’s Tory Redding from the first movie. Even Ozzie Jones (Mark Holton) comes back.

This was directed by Steven Kostanski, who made The VoidManborg and Psycho Goreman, so he understands exactly what this movie needs to be. It was originally made for SyFy but was later released to DVD and blu ray.

When a team of sorority sisters are tasking with building a green-certified house, they end up bringing Lubdan the Leprechaun back to life. And somehow, miracle of miracles, this ends up being one of the best if not the best movie in the entire series of films. It’s got an odd edge to it and isn’t afraid to have some gooft kills.

I’d love to see a sequel. And after a week of watching eight of these movies, that may be the highest praise of all.
