“Flee while you can, the future’s not good – for no one is safe from a Lep in the Hood!”
This month’s guest hecklers:
- Jessie McCoy
- Dylan Reiff
- Shane Hosea
When the star of a campy horror series has already been to space, what’s next? Compton! Broad stereotypes meet painful puns in Leprechaun in the Hood, a film that begins with Ice-T in an afro following a treasure map, and actually becomes more absurd from there.
Aspiring rap artists Stray Bullet, Butch and Postmaster P try to strike a deal with the powerful Mack Daddy Onassis (Ice-T). When it doesn’t work out, they rip him off – and accidentally unleash the vengeful Leprechaun (Warwick Davis), who was imprisoned for 20 years by a magic gold medallion. Now the Lep’s green with anger, ready to maim and murder anything that stands in the way of his treasure – but not before he takes a toke and drops a rhyme or two. Can anyone survive his ruthless retribution? Will Postmaster P stay positive? What happened to Coolio, anyway?
