Reboot Time: Leprechaun gets another chance with helmer Zach Lipovsky

05.28.2013

With the reboot of EVIL DEAD being so successful, maybe other franchises in horror have a chance, right? Allow me to present exhibit A:

LEPRECHAUN.

Is there any possible way that you could reboot this franchise which launched the career of Jennifer Aniston (no, that was FRIENDS) and had "LEPRECHAUN IN THE HOOD" as part of the series of films? It was a horror comedy that wasn't meant to be serious in any sort of way. How could you be with a tag line like "Your luck just ran out"? Will the reboot realize the lack of fear when it comes to a Leprechaun? Not sure. Details on this flick are slim.

What we do know is that Zach Lipovsky, a visual effects veteran who was a finalist from the Steven Spielberg and Mark Burnett produced reality show ON THE LOT will serve as the helmer. WWE star Hornswoggle will play Leprechaun this time around. The role has long belonged to Warwick Davis, who has done much cooler things.

I remember back in middle school when everyone was like, "Have you seen THE LEPRECHAUN? It's so creepy!" I would reply, "That doesn't sound creepy at all. Have you seen SUSPIRIA?" (Thanks for that dad!) Instead of typing out a synopsis, I'll just show you the original trailer for a reference...not like you need it.

Really Don't Care

This movie and its reboot had/have zero effect on my life but I will say that was the most poorly edited trailer I have ever seen. Random sound effects, characters speaking without any sound, guns going off but no sound. I know it was a low budget movie but Christ that was awful.

I never saw any of the movies. Looking at the Leprechaun himself, I never thought he was interesting or scary. Check out the gems in the trailer: "We're like... really scared." and "It's out. It's out of the crate." Wow.

The scariest thing I saw as a kid was Nightmare on Elm Street 3. The part when Freddy cuts Phillip's veins out and uses them as puppet strings to move him around stays with you for a while. That and the monster people from The Kindred.

That was actually rumored to have almost happened. About the same time Freddy vs Jason came out. I think they wanted to have a bunch of killer vs killer films like chucky vs leprechaun and Michael Myers vs Pinhead, etc.

Leprechaun is one of my favorite horror films of all time, alongside Halloween, Friday the 13th, NOES, and Child's Play. The film scared the hell out of me when I was a kid.

I'm not against a proper reboot with the tone being more serious like the first couple of Leprechaun films were before the Hood saga. It's just that I can't see anyone else but Warwick Davis in the role. The little guy owned and scared the hell out of everyone as the Leprechaun and I feel that's going to be the biggest

The little guy owned and scared the hell out of everyone as the Leprechaun and I feel that's going to be the biggest challenge of this reboot...trying to find someone just as good, terrifying, and funny as Davis was in the role.
