Shaun vs. Leprechaun Origins (2014)

leporiginsHere it is, ladies and gentlemen!  The long awaited reboot of the Leprechaun franchise, it’s a new take on the Leprechaun mythos coming at us as a serious creature feature as opposed to the off-the-wall absurdity of the older series.  Is a fresh perspective enough to breathe new life into the series or does it come off as a stinky, stanky nugget?  Click to find out!

Shaun vs. Leprechaun (Part 2)

lep2For the six of you who enjoyed the last one, here’s part two of my coverage of the Leprechaun series before getting into the recently released reboot, Leprechaun: Origins.  Click below to see just how crazy the series becomes as the filmmakers come up with new places to drop the Leprechaun.  There was a brief trend of putting horror characters in outer space…Jason was up there, Pinhead was up there, why not a Leprechaun?  But then he makes his way back to Earth in back to back films taking place in urban ghettos getting his freak on with plenty of weed smoking, rap music and hoes.  You wouldn’t think there’d be this much mileage in a killer leprechaun franchise, but here we are with parts 4-6!

Shaun vs. The Wishmaster Series

Wishmasteridea behind “Wishmaster” may not be the most original, but at least in the right hands it could be imaginative and entertaining.  And it was!  Unfortunately in the wrong hands, it can turn into a big turd.  In this case, the series came out with three turds out of the four movies.  I would imagine most people stopped paying attention to the series after the first or second, some may even be shocked to know that there are four of these things.  What’s even more shocking is that they were even made to begin with.  Yes, this will not be a fun venture, but fear not, at least you only have to read about them, I had to live through them.

Shaun vs. Bad Milo (2013)

Duncan suffers from terrible stomach pains caused by stress.  It’s so bad it’s keeping him on the toilet all night sometimes.  Unfortunately, this actually causes a monster to form inside his…colon?…and it eventually gets out and takes out his frustrations for him in some very nasty ways.    Can he handle Milo before someone close to him becomes a victim?  Can I handle a butt-monster movie at all??  Click the link to find out!
