Watch Leprechaun: In the Hood
- 1 hr 30 min
In 2000, the fifth entry into the Leprechaun horror series was set out. This film was Leprechaun In the Hood, and it was not released in theaters but rather went straight to video. This film would star Warwick Davis reprising his role as the Leprechaun. In addition, Ice-T would star as a vengeful record label producer. The film centers around three young rappers who want to see their demo get some playtime so they can hopefully get the break they've been dreaming of. When Mack Daddy (Ice-T) goes back on his initial offer to help the young hip hop artists, they decide to rob him to settle their score. They unknowingly release the entrapped Leprechaun when they swipe the magic flute from a statue. Soon they are living large and all of their shows are becoming widely popular. However, they have a target on their backs by both the Leprechaun who wants to find the gold that was stolen from him and Mack Daddy who wants to get his flute and make the young rappers pay for disrespecting him. These characters go round and round throughout the film, and within the comedic dialogue, the horror element present in all of the series' films would remain a constant. That element would be the Leprechaun's violent and relentless pursuit of his gold. Trimark Pictures would be the company behind the release of this film, and it would be directed by Rob Spera, otherwise best known for directing Witchcraft, Army Wives (TV), and Criminal Minds (TV). The film was written by Mark Jones and produced by Bruce David Eisen, Darin Spillman, and Mike Upton. The three rapper characters co-starring in the film alongside Warwick Davis and Ice-T were: Anthony Montgomery (Postmaster P), Rashaan Nall (Stray Bullet) and Red Grant (Butch).
