SyFy surprised horror fans everywhere a while back by announcing a sequel to 1993’s Leprechaun called Leprechaun Returns, picking up 25 years after the original film. We brought you the news of the official poster and release date a few weeks back. And now it’s available for you to watch via Video On demand and Digital HD!
Leprechaun Returns Synopsis
The film picks up 25 years after the events of the 1993 original, which found a maniacal leprechaun doing whatever it takes (including committing gruesome murder) to track down his stolen pot of gold. The leprechaun menaced Tory Reding (Jennifer Aniston) until he was finally defeated when a four-leaf clover was shot down his throat. Leprechaun Returns finds the leprechaun revived in the modern day when a group of sorority girls unwittingly awakens him while tearing down a cabin to build a new sorority house.
Linden Porco is replacing Warwick Davis as the leprechaun this time around. The cast includes Taylor Spreitler (Amityville: The Awakening 2017, Pepi Sonuga (Ash vs Evil Dead TV series), and Sai Bennett (Lake Placid: Legacy 2018). Mark Holton will appear as Ozzie, the character he played in the original, although Tory Reding will now be played by newcomer Heather McDonald. Steven Kostanski (The Void 2017) sits in the director’s chair this time out with a screenplay by Suzanne Keilly (Ash vs Evil Dead TV series).
