What is 'Leprechaun' about?
When Tory Reding (Jennifer Aniston) and her father J.D. (John Sanderford) rent an old, rundown house in rural North Dakota, Tory thinks her only problems are going to be dust, bugs, spiders, cobwebs and no shopping mall or cable TV until 'Three Guys Who Paint' -- Nathan (Ken Olandt), his little brother Alex (Robert Hy Gorman), and their dim-witted friend Ozzie (Mark Holton) -- release a leprechaun (Warwick Davis) that's been crated up in the basement, accidentally brought over from Ireland ten years ago by previous owner Dan O'Grady (Shay Duffin). The leprechaun will stop at nothing to get back his pot of gold and takes to terrorizing Tory and her painter friends.
Total body count is four. In the opening scenes, Mrs. O'Grady (Pamela Mant) panics, falls down the stairs, and breaks her neck after being scared by the leprechaun. When Ozzie and Alex take the gold coin to have it appraised, the leprechaun gets it back by jumping on the shop owner's chest and abdomen with a pogostick. On his way back from the appraisal shop, the leprechaun is stopped by Deputy Tripet, who thinks that the leprechaun is a child in costume. The leprechaun claws the deputy's face, chases him through the woods, and eventually breaks his neck. Toward the end of the movie, Mr. O'Grady, who is living in a rest home, is mangled by the leprechaun and later found in an elevator where he dies of his injuries.
