Earlier this year it was revealed that horror fans will get an 8th entry into the Leprechaun film franchise with the upcoming Leprechaun Returns. We are less than a month away from it’s VOD release, occurring on December 11. Following in the footsteps of this year’s wildly successful Halloween film, the new entry will be a direct sequel to the original film, ignoring the rest of the series. Steven Kostanski (The Void) will be directing, with the role of the titular killer being played by Linden Porco. Check out the brand new trailer below!
The film picks up 25 years after the events of the 1993 original, which found a maniacal Leprechaun doing whatever it takes (including committing gruesome murder) to track down his stolen pot of gold. Leprechaun Returns finds the leprechaun revived in the modern day when a group of sorority girls unwittingly awaken him while tearing down a cabin to build a new sorority house.
