Wishlist Fulfillment: LEPRECHAUN Complete Box Set Arrives Sept 30!

Leprechaun Complete CollectionNot too long ago I had a feeling this may or may not happen.  And here it is, the Leprechaun collection is hitting Blu-ray this fall.  You may remember it as the star of my St. Patty’s Day Blu-ray Wishlist piece a few months back.  The crazier, more ridiculous and cheaper this series gets, the more I tend to enjoy them.  This box set will also contain the WWE Films reimagining of the series Leprechaun: Origins as well.  So you get all 7 Leprechaun films in one shot.  Lionsgate is very much doing what Universal did with the Chucky set last year, which is a very smart move.  Most the information below is about Origins, but keep looking and you see this will be a complete set.  And yeah, I’m one of the few pretty stoked this is coming.

    Nice!! Every March, I have myself a Leprechaun-athon and I find myself entertained every time. I’m hoping for some behind-the-scenes footage of Jennifer Aniston from the original film. And Rodman Flender gave a really good commentary on the Idle Hands DVD, so I’m hoping for a repeat performance here.

    I’m not too sure how I feel about Hornswoggle replacing Warwick Davis, though… as I don’t even like him as a WWE character/performer. But I’m trying to keep an open mind. 🙂
