Leprechaun- Origins poster

UPDATE: Here’s the full trailer for Leprechaun: Origins.

I love the original Leprechaun series which is (almost) always highly entertaining thanks to the very talented Warwick Davis.

This movie just looks terrible. Not scary, not funny, not worth seeing.

When the acting in the trailer (you know, the lines they picked to best represent the movie!) are so bad that they make me cringe, that is a problem!

Are any of you Crappers planning to check this reboot out?

What’s your favorite movie in the original Leprechaun series?

    Just like all my other WWE Films DVD purchases I’ll give it 6 months or so and pick it up for 50p in a two for one offer at my local pound store.

  2. Thomas Moffatt says:

    The most I see anything referencing Hornswoggle I ultimately think “Gooker of the Year”…

  3. Mighty Vastardikai says:

    I used to think that Hornswaggle was the worst thing to happen to an over character since Dink the Clown was put with Doink.

    Then I remembered, Dink didn’t score pinfall victories over Skip and Rad Radford after Doink’s character left WWF.

  4. John C says:

    Just looks like any other recent boring horror remake trailer. Oh no someone looks out a window….”JUMP SCARE” which only a 8 year old doesn’t see coming. For my bad movie enjoyment I await the Rifftrax crew doing Sharknado coming in July.

  5. Anon says:

    I’m afraid I can’t be interested in a Leprechaun reboot.

    Now, if it was a remake of Leprechaun In The Hood…

  6. Doc75 says:

    i saw the trailer earlier today. honestly it seemz more like a teaser than anything. you dont get one single good look at the leprechaun. my wife n i were huge fanz of the seriez but are not gonna be seeing this (oddly enuff) on pay per view. az far az favorite leprechaun film? thats a toughie. ive enjoyed em all honestly. i just wish theyd kept Warwick Davis on n maybe go with the ideaz of leprechaun on a pirate ship or Leprechaun in the old west. but sadly looks like its not gonna happen.

  7. Jeremy says:

    Another homerun from WWE Studios eh?

  8. Budnick says:

    A Leprechhaun reboot. I’ll give it a look.

    They started to get ridiculous with that other series.

    Leprechaun in Space is so bad. So very bad.

  9. The Doctor of Style says:

    A horror movie poster pretty much loses any scariness when it features the name “Hornswoggle.”

  10. Mister Forth says:

    For me, this leads me to say “I WANT FINLAY BACK! BUT I STILL DON’T KNOW HOW!”

  11. Anonymous says:

    Not gonna lie, this doesn’t even look all that bad to me.

  12. WrestleTrekker says:

    As a person who hated the original, I plan on hating this one just as much.

  13. TMS says:

    I don’t think I could force myself to see this, even if Vince paid me.

  14. Anonymous says:

    At least it’ll be better than Leprechaun in the Hood.

  15. Cracker says:

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news after so much work, but it doesn’t look that bad. It looks like standard b-grade horror, which is what it is supposed to be. I won’t be seeing it in the theater, but I wouldn’t be seeing it no matter how the trailer is. Nothing in this screams (no pun intended) “classic movie!”, there is nothing in this that screams (there it is again) “worst thing ever!”

  16. Thomas says:

    Meanwhile, Batista has Guardians of the Galaxy coming next week, and is actually drawing good notices for his performance as Drax the Destroyer.

    Somehow, I don’t think Hornswoggle will quite make such an impact, unless he proves to be spectacularly awful. The worst thing that could happen to this movie is that it be “meh”.

  17. John Matrix says:

    It can’t be any worse than the original.

    • "The Big Cheese" Paul Kraft says:

      “Fuck you, Lucky Charms!”. C’mon, the original had Warwick Davis, Jennifer Aniston, and Mark Holton (AKA: Francis from Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure)! How can you go wrong?!

  18. AdamX says:

    The original was a favorite series of mine.

    I loved part 4, the only time I felt bad for horror in space was Jason X. Kane Hodder deserved better as his last role under the mask.

    As for this I’ll likely Netflix/Syfy it.

  19. jedi&^$ says:

    anybody else think that the creature looks like pumpkin head? they should of called this pumpkin head origins.

  20. jedi&^$ says:

    this looks like a pumpkin head movie not leprechaun. numb skulls at wwe

  21. AK says:

    “WWE superstar” heh heh heh heh chortle.

    Maybe if he was repackaged as the CLB.

  22. Anonymous says:

    The greatest film of all time.

  23. Chris says:

    Speaking of all things horror, have Wrestlecrap ever inducted “Monsters Brawl” In which “The Witch Bitch” battles Cyclops, Jimmy Hart is the ring announcer and Kevin Nash shows up?

    Just saw this last night and…well, I’ still speechless.http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1716753/

  24. Thomas Moffatt says:

    Why has it not been referenced that Hornswoggle is already a two time gooker winner?

  25. Sean Bateman says:

    RD, get ready to induct.
