Season of the Lep: Day 1

Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood (2003)

Straight to video in 2003, “Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood” was the sixth film in the Warwick Davis little-green-horror franchise, and the second one set in the ganja jungle of “the hood.” The first featured Ice-T in a supporting role; this snags Sticky Fingaz (of Onyx, remember?).

I’m embarrassed to admit that this is the only part of the hexalogy I haven’t seen. But in a five-star review on Amazon, one Johnny Bottom (“insane and lonely guitarist”) offers this helpful synopsis:

Ghetto Queen finds the treasure and passes it around to her homies. They buy what you’d expect, cars, jewelry, weaves, gold teeth, and an ample supply of marijuana. Well our little green friend ‘don’t play dat’. He kills with a bong, rips your fillings out, takes an electric razor to the eye, kills the rival gang, burns in a furnace, is shot with hallow point rounds (filled with four leaf clovers ha ha ha!!!), but best of all he kills two cops and steals their car. How can a leprechaun drive you ask? Easy! He rips the leg off one of the cops and uses it because he can’t reach the pedals. Classic.

Stay tuned for more goodies in this Season of Shamrock Shakes Season of the Lep!
