LEPRECHAUN (Part One)
MYTHOLOGY: Comes from Ireland. Doesn’t like four leaf clovers. His magic is tied to his gold. Obsessed with making shoes.
BEST DEATH SCENE: Jumping on the pawn shop owner with a pogo stick. Great product placement, too.
VERDICT: This movie will always have a soft spot in my heart. It hasn’t aged well over time, particularly Jennifer Aniston’s Valley Girl schtick and basically everything that comes out of her mouth. But the movie still rides a very fine line between horror and cheese that still works. It never forgets that it’s trying to be a fun, scary ride.
