Oh dear – they’ve made a leprechaun horror film

As if the leprechaun stereotype isn’t bad enough, WWE (the wrestling people), who probably should have stuck to the wrestling – have teamed up with Lionsgate to make a film called Leprechaun: Origins, a leprechaun horror film.

The film was shot in Vancouver and tells the terrifying tale of two young couples that happen to be backpacking through the Irish countryside. Of course, the loved-up couples “…discover the idyllic land is not what it appears to be when a town resident offers the hikers an old cabin at the edge of the woods. Soon, the friends will find that one of Ireland’s most famous legends is a terrifying reality.”

It’s a reboot of some leprechaun films that were out in the 90s, such as Leprechaun 4: In Space. We can’t help but think the leprechaun genre should have stayed in the 90s.
