You would have to be drunk on whiskey or high on some premium ganja (like my main man and OG evil leprechaun Warwick Davis) to find anything good about this pile of excrement.
So much was bad from the barely awake acting to the amateurish effects and cheap sets. Everyone involved with this should be ashamed with themselves and strike it from their IMDb pages. And that cheap ass goblin make-up that was supposed to be a demonic leprechaun was very pitiful.
How anyone could think that making a movie about a murderous evil leprechaun was something that should be completely devoid of any humor is a total mystery to me.
Final Verdict: This may be the worst thing I have watched this entire calendar year. It is uninspired, slapdash, boring and terrible in every way that a film can be terrible. Do yourself a favor and stay as far away from this stinker as you can.

I bet the 8% who liked it were Hornswoggled into it.
And that is my other problem…I don’t think Hornswoggle was actually playing the leprechaun in this movie. there were times when the leprechaun looked like a normal sized man.
Hmm. Interesting. Very interesting.
