Horror in a Casino: Leprechaun 3 (1995)
Perhaps LEPRECHAUN 3 is not the worst ever horror movie with a casino theme, but it must get close to it. The film received a zero percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, though extraordinarily it received a high rating on the Internet Movie Database.
The film, released in 1995, stars Warwick Davis who plays the Leprechaun. It is the third in a series of six Leprechaun films all of which center round a rather nasty killer leprechaun who refuses to be parted from his hoard of gold.
In Leprechaun 3 begins the Leprechaun has magically been changed into a statue and sold to a pawn shop in Las Vegas however, when the store keeper removes a medallion from him he reverts to being a Leprechaun and kills the store keeper.
Scott McCoy is a student recently arrived in Las Vegas. He helps out and subsequently falls for a girl named Tammy who is having problems with her car and gives her a lift to the Lucky Shamrock Casino, her place of work. However Scott hangs around and loses his cash at roulette. He visits the pawn shop, finds the dead body, notices the Leprechaun’s missing coin, gets granted a wish, and wishes for a winning streak.
He returns to the casino where his wish comes off, but he is robbed and later attacked by the Leprechaun which bites him before he gets away. The bite causes him to slowly take on Leprechaun traits including an Irish accent. It could have been a better ending for Scott if he had wished for his streak in an online casino like “www.jackpotcity.co.uk/online-slots“- at least the leprechaun might have had a bit more trouble getting into his house!
Suddenly it seems that everyone can have a wish. We will not reveal any more of the plot, not so much to avoid a plot spoiler, but you are unlikely to believe it. But in the end, the Leprechaun is defeated and is incinerated along with his gold. Everyone lives happily ever after, that is until Leprechaun 4.
We go along with Rotten Tomatoes, zero stars.
