Leprechaun in the Hood
When Butch, Postmaster P, and Stray Bullet loot the local hip-hop mogul's studio to fund their demo album, the threesome unwittingly ends up with the secret of Mack Daddy's success: a magical flute. Their gigs instantly turn golden but a blood-thristy Leprechaun and an angry Mack Daddy are hot on their trail, leaving a wake of destruction tainted by politically incorrect limericks.

★★★½ review by Parker on Letterboxd
I always thought it was vaguely racist that, in a franchise where each movie's setting got increasingly weird, some producer thought that "The Hood" would be weirder and crazier than "In Space," but upon finally seeing this movie, it's so much goddamn weirder than Leprechaun being in space. This movie is insane bananas.
★★★½ review by Countess Anya Sanguina on Letterboxd
Lep in the Hood... Up to no good! No matter how horribly cheesy and ridiculous this movie is, I still find it quite enjoyable. Beats all the other sequels, but not better than the first film.

Happy St. Patty's!
★★★★ review by Alan Dorich on Letterboxd
Although it never quite hits the satirical fever pitch of BRIDE OF CHUCKY or JASON X, LEPRECHAUN IN THE HOOD could be the most enjoyable of the LEPRECHAUN series. It drops our favorite gold-hunting monster (Warwick Davis, having a blast) in Compton and facing against Ice-T, who plays a pitch perfect bad guy.
While it could have used a bit more of the mischievous spirit of Brian Trenchard-Smith's LEPRECHAUN 3 (finding Davis in Vegas!), director Rob Spera does a nice job making this trash into a treasure. Obviously, it's not a classic of modern horror (it's a LEPRECHAUN movie, after all), but when you want splattery, ridiculous fun, this more than does the job. Look fast for Coolio's silent cameo.
★★★½ review by Curtis Williams on Letterboxd
OK, this is a great idea for a Leprechaun movie, and they do a good job pulling it off. Totally campy and cheesy, but still a lot of fun. It stars Ice T (this is the performance that landed him the gig on Law & Order) and is centered in South Central LA. The Leprechaun's gold is stolen (big surprise), he comes back for it, smokes weed and fucks people up. Perfect. It's the best of the films, just barely edging out part one.
