Fear Friday - The Saturday St. Patrick's Day Edition

Fridays at Laughing Vixen Lounge Blog are Fear Fridays where we review a different horror/scary/thriller/classic horror movie. Tonight's Fear Friday is on Saturday to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. So wear your green, have a some spirits and have a laugh at tonight's movie.

Fear Friday - Leprechaun

Tagline - Your luck just ran out

Directed by Mark Jones and released on January 8, 1993 by Trimark Pictures (rated R). Someone steals the little guy's gold and he's not happy about it. After 10 years of being locked in a basement the Leprechaun is freed and ready to get revenge. And his gold back!

OK, so this is a silly romp but never the less fun for the holiday. Hard to believe this one spawned five sequels. That Leprechaun went to the hood, to space and back to the hood again! Oh my! I must admit I've only seen the first one and that's enough for me.

If you like your horror with a slice of cheese, or a few (green) beers, this can be a fun watch. Or if you're a fan of Jennifer Aniston this was her first movie.

Happy St. Patrick's Day and don't take any pots of gold! 8)

Take a look at the original trailer...

Some trivia about the movie...
1. The first film from Trimark.
2. According to Warwick Davis, the movie was originally planned as a scary kids' film, but the studio thought it would work better as a more adult horror, so inserts were filmed to ramp-up the gore-factor.
