Leprechaun 3 (1995)

Director: Brian Trenchard-Smith

Stars: Warwick Davis, John Gatins, Lee Armstrong, Caroline Williams, John DeMita

A decrepit man enters into a pawn shop to sell a statue of a leprechaun that he claims will bring good luck to the own. The shop owner removes the medallion from the neck of the statue, and the leprechaun wakes up to find his gold. Scot was on his way to L.A. for school, but he is sidetracked by this girl Tammy. He ends up losing all of his money at a casino. He goes to the pawn shop to get more money, when he finds the store owner dead. He finds one of the coins next to the body, and his lucky changes because of the coin. He gets whatever his wishes, but there is a lame magician that wants the coin along with the woman that was dealing at Scot's table. The two try to get the coin away from Scot, while the leprechaun is looking for his last piece of gold. He kills all in his way to get the gold coin.

This one is pretty silly. You have the leprechaun driving and chasing people in a go-cart. Really? It looks like a child in make-up, and no, it is not a little people joke. Pull back your claws. The movie was pretty bad. The background for the casino scenes looked like casino night at the projects. It was all plain and boring. It looked like the movie was shot at Bob's Casino. Just awful.

The acting was what you would think it would be. It was overdone, silly and mediocre. The death scene were really trying to be imaginative. There were some nice effects for a low budget horror movie.

This movie was made to be more funny than anything else. It is the third in the series. It is what it is. It is not a great movie, but it is better than the ones to come. Enjoy?
