Unfortunately, Leprechaun 2 did not have the financial success of the original Leprechaun; the result was that the third film in the series was not given a theatrical release. Instead, Leprechaun 3 was released direct to home video in 1995.

At the beginning of Leprechaun 3, we learn that Lubdan the leprechaun has somehow been changed into a statue by the application of a magical amulet. Next thing he knows, he’s sold to a Las Vegas pawn shop! When the amulet is removed from his neck, Lubdan is once again a living, breathing leprechaun, and one who is not happy about his change in form, and is even less happy to find that his magical gold coin is being passed around Sin City. The result is a leprechaun on a murder spree.

Time hasn’t had a lot of meaning so far in the Leprechaun films, what with that whole waiting-a-thousand-years-for-a-bride thing, but the franchise’s 1997 offering ventures boldly where no leprechaun has gone before. Leprechaun 4: In Space takes us into the future and into outer space.

Apparently, enough time has passed from Leprechaun 2 (more than the three real-world years) that the leprechaun is looking for a new honey. Lubdan uses all his financial resources to turn the head of the alien Princess Zarina. When promises of his vast fortune aren’t enough to seal the deal, he reverts to the method that worked so well for him in the past: abduction. A group of space marines rescues the Princess, killing him in the process. Unfortunately for Princess Zarina’s knights in shining armor, Lubdan is reborn and seeks out the woman he believes was stolen from him, killing merrily as he goes.
