i want me gold!

My most vivid memories are about things that scared me when I was a kid. When I was little, about 7 or 8, I saw the movie LEPRECHAUN. It completely terrified me. In the middle of the movie I finally got up the courage to leave the room and ran to my bedroom and jumped on the bed from 3 feet away so anything under the bed couldn’t grab me. Then I spent all night lying awake terrified that leprechauns would come up the side of the bed while I was asleep. A couple of years ago when I was about 23, I watched LEPRECHAUN on T.V. and I couldn’t believe how cruddy it was. It’s amazing what crap will scare a kid. To this day I’ve never been a fan of leprechauns.


UNK SEZ: Agreed! I’m not a fan of Leprechauns either! They really need to start working on their public image, as it stands , even when they are not killing people, they come across as profoundly greedy and woefully prone to obsessive compulsive disorders and Napoleon complexes. If I had magical powers I think I could find something better to do with my time than go on and on about how great my bucket of gold is and how everyone wants it! Get over yourselves, leprechauns! Nobody cares!

I remember watching Leprechaun in about the 6th grade when I briefly lived in Tennessee.  Oddly, I remember watching it at a friend’s house, in a finished basement where a large TV lived.  But I don’t remember which friend lived in that house.  And all I remember from the movie itself is Jennifer Aniston getting chased by the titular Leprechaun, who was driving a go-kart with a pitchfork strapped to the front.  Memories are weird.

I love the Leprechaun series! great kills, funny situations and awesome one liners from Warwick Davis, who also played Wicket the Ewok in Return of the Jedi. I especially like Leprechaun in space, In the Hood and Back 2 Da Hood.

I almost have a little respect for the people who make these films. They are shrewd ones. They HAVE to be in on the joke – I mean LOOK at those titles: LEPRECAUHN IN THE HOOD? LEPRECAUHN IN SPACE?
It’s like they are saying “We know our movies suck and we are in on the joke”. As long as people pay to see them they will keep making them. I can hardly wait for LEPRECAUHN AUDITIONS FOR AMERICAN IDOL!
