After capturing a true leprechaun and stealing his pot of gold, Dan O'Grady thinks life is just great. That is, until the leprechaun wants his pot of gold back and becomes an Irishman's nightmare. LEPRECHAUN features an early starring role from FRIENDS actress Jennifer Aniston.
Shay Duffin learned a very valuable lesson: never steal gold from a leprechaun. Ten years ago, Shay returned to the United States with 100 gold pieces he stole from a little green Irishman. The eponymous fellow followed Shay to America, but Shay suffered a massive heart attack that left him incapacitated. Years later, a new family moves into Shay's abandoned house. Little do they know, they'll have to contend with the angry leprechaun still busily searching for his gold.
