When you think about horror franchises that require new installments, the Leprechaun series really isn't the first one that comes to mind. Hell, they've sent that little green motherfucker 2 Tha Hood (twice!) and to space. What other worlds are left for a knee-high maniac to conquer?
Well, don't tell that to Astron-6 member Steven Kostanski, as the Canadian splatter maestro (who helped helm The Void) is bringing that gold-grubbing asshole back with Leprechaun Returns. The only sad part? Warwick Davis has been replaced as the titular Irish menace, with Linden Porco (Channel Zero: Butcher's Block) stepping into the character's silver-buckled shoes.
If this trailer is any indication, it doesn't matter, as the spot promises a seriously goofy time at the movies, full of gore and super dumb jokes.
Take a look:
Hot damn, that looks like an ill-advised mess (which means I'm already requesting a screener copy). My personal favorite gag? The mailbox kill. Whoever thought of that nonsense deserves a Nobel Prize.
Leprechaun Returns hits VOD December 11th. Stock up on Jameson and call your peeps.
