Leprechaun 4: In Space

Posted on

Not even giving this video franchise a chance to become tired, the folks behind the malevolent, sadistic little man in green now add the inevitable futuristic spin. Leprechaun 4 skips exposition and opens with space soldiers chasing the evil leprechaun (Davis), who is now plotting to take over the universe through an arranged marriage to an intergalactic queen. The script wisely punches up the standard Alien setting with knowing anachronisms (Ray Charles jokes and mirrored disco balls) and an arachnidlike monster, not to mention the bonus oxymoron of a giant midget.
