Welcome to the month of March everyone. I don’t know about you but this year is certainly flying by for me! What are the first things you think of related to March? I think of four leaf clovers, the color green, and Leprechaun. Yes, you read that right. Mr. Leprechaun himself. While four leaf clovers and the color green may give you warm fuzzies, Leprechaun murders people. You know what? I don’t blame him. All he wants is his pot of gold and he continuously gets screwed over. This is the primary reason Leprechaun is PopHorror’s Villain Of The Month. You may not be very lucky finding your pot of gold, Leprechaun. However, the family at PopHorror still love you.


Hey! Where did you go Leprechaun? Well, while he perfects his disappearing act, let’s discuss how he became a villain. It all started with a man named Dan O’Grady. He stole the Leprechaun’s pot of gold and buried it. Little did he know, the Leprechaun followed him home in the process. Sadly, O’Grady’s wife is murdered, which is a big price to pay for stealing a pot of gold. Before O’Grady is killed as well, he manages to trap the Leprechaun in a crate by placing a four leaf clover on top of it. He then attempts to burn the crate. Ironically, he suffers a stroke and the Leprechaun is stuck in the crate for ten years. Let’s review. One. Leprechaun’s pot of gold was stolen. Two. He was stuck in a fucking crate for ten years. If that doesn’t qualify for villainous behavior, I don’t know what does.


I could listen to Leprechaun speak all day. He certainly has a way with words, especially ones that rhyme. Let’s take a look back at some of his most memorable sayings.

Leprechaun: Ah! Try as they will, and try as they might, who steals me gold won’t live through the night.

Deputy Tripet: Say, aren’t we a little young to be out this late? Leprechaun: No. I’m 600 years old.

Leprechaun: For pulling this trick, I’ll chop off your dick!

Leprechaun: A friend with weed is a friend indeed, but a friend with gold is the best I’m told.

Leprechaun: I’ll take it from you, homie, you’ll see, cause you know the Leprechaun is the real O.G.

Girl: How tall are you, sweet thing? Leprechaun: How tall am I? Uh, about 3 foot 6. Girl: 3 foot 6? Leprechaun: Yeah, but I make up for it in other areas, if you know what I mean? {Pause, then dial tone} Leprechaun: Hello?


Pogo Stick Demise (From the film Leprechaun) – Mothers across the nation were right about the pogo stick being dangerous. Leprechaun found the toy very useful when he used one to repeatedly stomp on a pawn shop owner. I never owned a pogo stick. Now, I never want to.

Blowing Up Botox Style (From the film Leprechaun 3)A casino employee in Las Vegas had one wish: to be young and beautiful again. Leprechaun is all too happy to make her dream come true. Too bad his concoction causes her entire body to explode into millions of pieces.

Pot Belly – (From the film Leprechaun 2) – People are always eager to make wishes for the Leprechaun to grant. A greedy man wishes for a pot of gold. So, Leprechaun allows one to materialize inside the man’s stomach. Ouch!

Full Frontal – (From the film Leprechaun 4) – Leprechaun goes where most movie killers do not with this one. In the fourth installment of the Leprechaun franchise, he actually gets reborn. Yup. He emerges from some poor guy’s penis. That event, in itself, is enough to kill the guy. Well done Leprechaun.

As you can see, Leprechaun whole heartedly deserves the honor of Villain of the Month. He exudes confidence, a sense of humor, and a deep rage within. Plus, he is quite the prankster. I would hate to see what he would do if someone didn’t wear green on Saint Patrick’s Day! Congratulations Leprechaun! We appreciate you! As for the readers, what are your favorite Leprechaun movies? We would love to chat with you about them!
