Leprechaun 4: In Space [1997]

[Cross-posted on the Bad Movie Night Facebook page.]

Sometimes a movie is so obviously bad that you feel almost like it is giving you, the viewer, the middle finger just for bothering to spend any amount of money to watch it. This time the movie literally ended with a giant middle finger on the screen. But how could you be offended really when you voluntarily chose to watch a movie called Leprechaun 4: In Space?

Imagine if Alien and The Fly were smashed together into one movie but with the addition of a malicious leprechaun who attacks a space ship in an effort to retrieve a humanoid alien the space marines have captured who he was trying to convince to marry him to piss off her father. Makes total sense, right? I can't really explain the details of this movie in a manner that makes sense because they don't even make sense in the context of the plot so instead I will give you list of things that happen:

  • A drill sergeant-esque officer who appears to be missing part of his skull has had it replaced with fiberglass.
  • The space ship has a 70s disco for the space marines to hang out in.
  • A man births a leprechaun out of his penis.
  • Said leprechaun wields a light saber.
  • A woman flashes her breasts as an indicator that she is going to kill someone.
  • A talking head is actually mostly robot. Then he becomes mostly spider/scorpion.
  • The attractive female scientist makes out with the main buff Marine.
  • The leprechaun becomes giant but this has little impact on the final battle.

  • Also worth noting?  This movie has a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes and at least two sequels with "Hood" in the title. I smell potential.

    Adam's Grandma's Review: "A little bit of everything."

    Still thinking about the penis birth? Allow me to end your curiosity 
    (In hindsight, my whole review could have been just this video.):
