Leprechaun Goes to Space
Make no bones about it, quality-wise this is sub-Canadian sci-fi television. Bad acting, flat cinematography? And semi-cheap sets.
But we're not here for production values, we're here for bad dialogue, insane plots, horrific jokes and general WTFness. It delivers this in spades. The frame rips off Alien, but also The Fly and those 1950s embiggening movies. There's also a space princess and hypnotizing breasts and...it's really all thrown in with no regard for logic or sanity.
Really, though, isn't that what we want from a movie called Leprechaun 4: In Space?

"I am no longer Mittenhand. I am now MittenSPIDER!!!"
Anyone ever notice that odd films in this series are about recovering the Leprechaun's gold and even films are about him being horny?
Miguel A. Núñez Jr. is in this. Debbe Dunning is in this. There's a dude named Mittenhand. So far so good....What the heck? Why is the Leprechaun not rhyming anymore? Boo!!! Some good gore but also some terrible fx. Maybe these weren't meant to be seen on Blu Ray.
Anyway you get what you expect from Leprechaun in Space...a very low budget Aliens rip-off full of one-liners, bad acting, and goes bat sh*t crazy in the last twenty minutes of the movie.
Maybe I hit my head today but I'm really enjoying these movies so far.
★★★★ review by Schlocktalk on Letterboxd
On 'Life's too Short', Warwick Davis' life is made out to look kinda terrible. Thing is, if you take 'Leprechaun 4: In Space' into account, it seems SO MUCH WORSE! In all honesty, 'L4:IS', as we in the Schlock biz like to call it, is insanely entertaining. Another Brian Trenchard-Smith masterpiece, of crazy visual non-sequiturs, rip offs of ostensibly better films (I'm looking at you, 'Aliens') and one homicidal munchkin's quest for his pot 'o' gold... in space. Because THAT makes sense.
★★★★½ review by Jacob Tender on Letterboxd
Ridiculous concepts. The CGI was dreadful. Makeup looked pretty great at a distance, but the excessive close-ups showed a poor job. Davis improves as an actor. LIGHT SABERS!
This is the perfect bad movie.
★★★½ review by asterrose on Letterboxd
Weird, just overall wierd, but that's what I expect from the Leprechaun franchise. He doesn't rhyme in this one, but that's a flaw/oversight I could deal with. Not really meant to be scary, but that's ok too. However, if the princess decides to scream one more damn time.....
