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 Leprechaun (Warwick Davis) is on a remote planet trying to woo an alien princess and become king, but a less-than-elite team of space marines arrives to stop him. With plenty of homages to Alien and Aliens, this movie is ridiculously over the top, but what were you expecting from the title?
