“Try as they will, and try as they might, who steals me gold won't live through the night!” With those fateful words, a maniacal Irish elf embarked on an epic six-part (and counting) spree of bloody havoc, starting with 1993's Leprechaun. Cinefamily screens the creme de la mayhem in Leprethon!, a St. Patrick's Day horror-movie marathon starting with 1995's Leprechaun 3 (wherein the titular imp goes wild in Las Vegas); then it's 1997's Leprechaun 4: In Space (more absurd than sci-fi slasher sequel Friday the 13th: Jason X); and the real pot of gold, 2000's Leprechaun: In the Hood, an Inner City fiasco mixing up the psycho leprechaun with hip-hop, weed, and Ice-T.
