Erin go bragh from all of us at Alcohollywood! This week, we’re celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with one of the most amazingly terrible iterations of the Leprechaun franchise, Leprechaun 4: In Space! Watch as the plot of Aliens is recreated with a $5 budget, sleazy German cyberscientists, and glittery alien women with spiky space bras – all while Warwick Davis collects a paycheck. The insanity is infectious, as this incredibly horrific film continues to amaze and baffle through its interminable 100 minute runtime.
Luckily, we’ve got just the drink to get you through it, as well as our review, which asks all the right questions: What is the Leprechaun doing in space? Why does a Cuisinart blender double as a magic DNA machine? How is there no blood when a leprechaun bursts out of a man’s urethra? Take a listen and find out more!

Say all you want about it – it’s still miles above Leprechaun 5: In Da Hood. And yes, pun intended.
Apparently they did a Leprechaun reboot last year.
Why, I do not know.
