VIDEO: Leprechaun: In the Hood (2000)

It’s a blast from the past as we present the first review Cheapus ever made! Once you’ve sunk low enough to send your horror franchise into space, the only place left to go is the hood, apparently, as Warwick Davis faces off against rappers (namely, Ice-T and a guy who was on Star Trek for four seasons and only had ten lines) in Leprechaun: In the Hood, the fifth movie in the Leprechaun saga. The saddest part is this did well enough to justify a sixth one, also in “the hood”.

    This is really funny for a first-time video review; you got good early.

    I can’t say too much about the movie itself, and not just because I haven’t seen it. The concept doesn’t just look dumb (almost Garbage Pail Kids-level dumb), it comes off as more than a little condescending towards its “urban” audience. Its characters aren’t just portrayed as dumb, they’re portrayed as a brand of dumb clearly rooted in racial stereotypes. I don’t think I could have mustered enough interest in a review of a film like this unless the reviewer has a good track record.

    Got any new new reviews coming up? I noticed you’d been gone awhile.

    Maybe it is just me, but I can’t help but think, that the “zombie fly girls”-idea is extremely sexist and misagynistic. I mean, that Leprechaun mind-controlling them etc. No… just no.
    No movie for me.

    And that comes from a guy, who likes Charlies Angels (the movies) and Catwoman – but possibly it has something to do with the fact, that in those movies, the characters were alive and active and not just mindless automatons in sexy dresses. At least the “characters” knew, that they were either dressing stupidly or so – and at least “they had a saying in that”… with which I mean, if the author would have bothered to come up with an explaination WHY Halle Berry is running around half naked, it mostly would have been “I like that clothes” and not “those are my work clothes, I am a sexy dancer and now I am a mindless automaton and a slave to the Leprechauns will.”

    And Travis Maywheather was in this?
    Oh god, do I have something to ask him, when he is on Fedcon. ^^
