Tilly has inherited a manor house. Soon, she will learn just how she has managed to inherit it when an evil leprechaun begins to stalk her down, taking out anyone in its way – for his gold!

“The silliness here, including a spoof ‘cash for gold’ advert, the gold tooth that Chrissie Wunna sports towards the end, and dialogue like “you take me gold and then you try to go for me family jewels…how dare you”, indicate that Leprechaun’s Rage isn’t crying out to be taken too seriously. Only once does Warren take a stab at out and out nastiness, with a bit of eyeball squashing violence.” Gav Crimson

“Focusing on a mix of laughs and scares is not a bad thing to be honest, especially considering how daft the original concept was – a man-sized leprechaun, a guy in what looks like a bad Halloween costume of a leprechaun at that […] It’s ridiculous, it really is, but leaning into the absurdity of it all, focusing on the leprechaun’s twisted sense of humour really works…” Nerdly
