We watched Leprechaun in the Hood, as you probably expected we would. Kumail Nanjiani is our guest, and he put this bad movie to the test. I realize these rhymes aren't great, but this movie isn't exactly first rate. Contain your howls and shrieks, and we'll see you back here next week!
Episode 22 — Leprechaun in the Hood

Great episode! Dealt with all the best parts of this outrageous film.
To answer Kumail's question about why 'bling' wasn't used in the film, I'm pretty sure bling hadn't really reached critical mass as a phrase by the time this was written/made. Had it been made a year or two later I'm sure it would be called "Leprechaun In the Hood: Pot Of Bling" or something...

Paul's correct about this film not being campy. There are a few jokes sprinkled throughout, but things get really serious toward the end. When the guys are dressing in drag to trick the leprechaun into smoking a four leaf clover joint, and then Postmaster P almost has to perform a sexual favor on the leprechaun, I was really worried that this was going to turn into an SVU episode. And the final battle in the bar features a crying Postmaster P, as everyone is dying. I think they had to throw in that leprechaun rap at the end just so viewers wouldn't be depressed.

I caught the first 20 or so minutes of this ridiculous movie last year while channel surfing. Kinda wish now I'd watched the entire movie so I could better appreciate the commentary! Sounds like all the Leprechaun films are impossible to watch without tokin' up.

Maybe the best HDTGM yet!
One thing: I wouldn't mention this if you hadn't brought up a misspelling in the "Second Opinion" part, but the iTunes title for this episode is a terrible, terrible thing--"Lepaurchan In The Hood"??? Spellcheck, guys.

According to imdb, director Rob Spera was also involved with making the Richard Grieco/Angie Everhart "erotic thriller" Sexual Predator
"A female parole officer gets involved with a serial killer whom she plans to entrap and kill in revenge for him killing her sister. "
