Leprechaun Origins Trailer

Growing up, few characters scared me from the video box alone more than the Leprechaun. Much like Chucky, there was something terrifying about seeing such a familiar, even lovable icon twisted into a new, frightening form. After a bunch of sequels though, the Leprechaun of my youth became a joke. As horror icons often do.

Enter WWE Studios, which has co-produced a remake with Lionsgate that they surely hope will terrify kids in much the same way as the original film. It’s called Leprechaun: Origins, directed by Zach Lipovsky and written by Harris Wilkinson. WWE wrestler Dylan “Hornswoggle” Postl plays the lead character, who terrorizes two American couples on vacation in Ireland.

Leprechaun: Origins opens hits VOD on August 26, followed by a Blu-ray release on September 30. Check out the first Leprechaun Origins trailer below. Read More »
