This year marks the 30th anniversary of the release of the cult classic horror film Leprechaun. To celebrate this, the entire collection of films is coming to Hulu. There are eight films in total and I personally haven’t seen them all, so this is my chance to experience a Leprechaun movie marathon! The film will debut on Hulu on October 1.
The original film, which is the best I’ve ever seen, starred Jennifer Aniston AND Warwick Davis. The film is a horror comedy directed by Marco Jones. It follows the story of an evil goblin, determined to reclaim his stolen pot of gold. After being trapped in a crate for 10 years by Dan O’Grady, the leprechaun is accidentally freed by Tory and her new friends in North Dakota. As they try to survive and figure out how to defeat him, the leprechaun terrorizes them with his magical powers and his murderous intentions, stopping at nothing to recover every last coin from his pot of gold.
This is the film that launched the franchise! Here is the complete selection of films:
Leprechaun 2 (1994)
Leprechaun 3 (1995)
Leprechaun 4: In space (1997)
Leprechaun in the hood (2000)
Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood (2003)
Leprechaun: Origins (2014)
The return of the elf (2018)
It was also confirmed earlier this year that the series would be revived with a reboot. Erin Westerman, president of production for Lionsgate’s Motion Picture Group, said: “Thirty years after its debut, this franchise still casts a spell and we are thrilled to bring it back with a new vision. Roy [Lee] and Miri [Yoon] we are two of our most trusted producers, especially for this genre, and we are thrilled with Felipe’s vision for the film as a director. In his hands, this movie should be very scary and very funny.”
