Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood

"As stupid as you'd guess it is...only even stupider than that."
1 stars

We now live in a world in which there are six separate "Leprechaun" movies.

Whether or not this is a good thing I'll leave up to you. Frankly I'm sick to death of the whole sorry series, and this comes from a guy who's been known to love the cheapest and cheesiest horror movies under the sun. But let's face it: the Leprechaun's run his course already. After two separate visits to "tha hood" (and a foray into outer space, don't forget) where else is there for a murderous leprechaun to go?

Better yet, don't answer that. We don't want to be giving anyone script concepts for the inevitable Leprechaun 7: In tha Mood. Obviously a movie with a title like Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood is pretty much beyond reproach; if I dismiss it as mindlessly stupid carnage punctuated by awful gallows humor uttered by Warwick Davis in green makeup, well that's pretty much what the filmmakers were shooting for in the first place. So I'm a bit stumped.

An evil leprechaun kills the people who took his gold. There's your plot. And since the word "hood" is in the title, it's only fair to assume that the soon-to-be-dead people are mostly black people. This is called "catering to a certain demographic". Hey, don't blame me, folks. Blame the guys who package urban-oriented entertainment with heaping helpings of pot-smokin', slang-talkin', no-respect-havin' stereotypes that are apparently less offensive when they're made FOR the race that they're humiliating.

Whew, sorry. I somehow got off on a socio-political diatribe while discussing a film entitled Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood. Where was my head at? You want the bottom line? The lep kills people. Most of them quite gorily. None of the splatters are nearly clever or creative enough to warrant a recommendation in the face of such amazing stupidity. One of the highlights sees a stoner getting skewered through the belly with a bong. That's what you're thinking about renting, people.

Yeah, I know these movies are stupid on purpose. I can get behind that approach on occasion. Just keep these damn Leprechaun movies away from me already.

Surely six of 'em is enough to satiate the rabid "Leprechaun" fanbase.
