Films, television cartoons and advertising have popularised a specific image of leprechauns which bears little resemblance to anything found in the cycles of Irish folklore.

Mark Jones, the writer-director, had a career in American television shows. Desiring to make a film, he decided that a low budget horror film was his best opportunity.
Jones was inspired by the Lucky Charms commercials to create a leprechaun character, only his twist was to turn the character into an antagonist.
Jones was further influenced by the film Critters , which featured a small antagonist. Jones brought the concept to Trimark , who were looking to get into film production and distribution.
Leprechaun became the first film produced in-house by Trimark to be theatrically released. Jennifer Aniston, who was an unknown at the time, impressed Jones, and he fought to have her cast.
Shooting occurred over three weeks, beginning at Valencia Studios, where Terminator 2: Judgment Day had recently finished production.
Davis later said it felt "a little blasphemous". For the scene where Davis chases Aniston in a wheelchair, Aniston had to run in slow motion so that Davis could keep up with her, as he had trouble manipulating the wheels.
Jones agreed with this tonal shift, and they shot it as a horror comedy. Gabe Bartalos performed the make-up effects.
Trimark contacted Bartalos to produce a sample. Applying the make-up took three hours, and taking it off took another 40 minutes.
Davis was conscious of the need to stay relaxed and not move, and he channelled his confidence that the make-up effects were properly applied into his acting.
Leprechaun was followed by five sequels: Leprechaun 2 , Leprechaun 3 , Leprechaun 4: In Space , Leprechaun in the Hood , and Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood In , a reboot, Leprechaun: On release, critical reception to the film was negative.
Weiskind concluded, "Forget about the proverbial pot of gold. The movie Leprechaun is a crock. Makos said Davis does his best to be funny, but the film has no funny jokes, making audience feedback probably more entertaining than the film itself.
Harrington wrote that Jones is "so bereft of inventive ideas that he refers to Lucky Charms cereal not once but three times",  and Bourjaily criticized the Lucky Charms jokes as unfunny.
Berardinelli said director Mark Jones has no style evident in the film. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article is about the first film.
