Format: Amazon Watch Party
Director: Who knows and who cares
I watched Leprechaun the first time at a party during what I think was Christmas break 1993. I don't really remember much about it except for that the Leprechaun was a vicious dick and it featured Jennifer Aniston before I knew who she was.
It follows the same pattern as a lot of horror from that era, and this era. People are in a country house of some kind, and a dangerous force attacks. The house actually looks quite a bit like the house from Critters or five dozen other movies of the era. In this case, an Irish immigrant has returned home from a funeral and brought with him a bag of gold he stole from a leprechaun (Warwick Davis). Now in the Western United States, he rightfully assumes he's safe from a magical being an ocean away.
He's not, but he traps the leprechaun in a box for a decade until Jennifer Aniston and her dad show up to rent the house. The movie also features a "hunky guy" house painter for Aniston to latch onto, his kid brother and the guy who stole Pee-Wee Herman's bike playing a moron.
A bit about the thing with Mark Holton's moron...
