*I received an advance review copy of this movie from the distribution company.

Have you ever seen a company do something so out of character that you wondered what the true motives behind the action were? I am wondering that very thing in regard to why Lionsgate picked up RED CLOVER to distribute. I have seen some really bad movies in my time, but RED CLOVER ranks way up towards the top of the list.

The first glaring error to me about this film is that the plot synopsis pretty much has nothing to do with the movie. The town in which the film is set is not Irish Channel, nor is it in Louisiana. It's actually a town called Kenning in Massachusetts. There's never a mention of a massacre or a storm, nor is there any talk about St. Patrick's Day festivities being banned. So, pretty much omit the synopsis above. The film is about an evil leprechaun that curses a girl and then kills all of her friends.

Yup, that's pretty much it. Why is she cursed? I don't know...the film never says. But she has a clover burned into her palm and the leprechaun hunts her for unknown reasons, although he doesn't kill her when he catches her and instead decides to hunt down other townsfolk. Make sense? Nope, not to me, either.

RED CLOVER is shot well, although that is one of only two positive points about the film. The second is the gore; while not excellent, it is still well done and looks good onscreen. But those two positives certainly cannot save this masterpiece of a mess.

One aspect that bugged me the most is the dialogue. It is atrocious. At one point, one of the characters talks about "pimp-slapping that leprechaun" until it's dead. I don't know if it was a serious comment or an attempt to inject humor into the scene, but it did not work either way. It actually made me angry.

Another big negative for me is when the leprechaun actually gets into a guy's car and runs him over with it to kill him. Keep in mind the creature looks like Pumpkinhead, so imagine it behind the wheel of a car. Driving. To run over someone. Then it puts the car in reverse and backs up.

REALLY?? Are you serious? A hideous creature with fangs and claws that has been disemboweling and dismembering people decides to drive a car to kill someone? I almost shut the movie off at this point but instead I drudged on.

For the past decade, Lionsgate has pumped out a massive list of hit titles, and they still continue to do so. But I seriously cannot believe they put their name on this one; RED CLOVER is not worth watching, even when it was on the Syfy Channel. As much as I wanted to like it, I cannot recommend it at all. It's not even so-bad-it's-good.

The movie hits shelves next week if you want to give it a look.

This is a made for TV film original titled "Leprechaun's Revenge." In the small American-Irish town of Keening, Mass. (filmed in Louisiana) Karen (Courtney Halverson) picks a red clover and gets cursed by a fairy creature known as the Lu-chor-pain, the Gaelic word for Leprechaun, perhaps the reason why they changed the name of the film.

Billy Zane plays Sheriff Conor O'Hara, her dad. Karen realizes she is cursed between the wild stories from her drunken grandfather (William Devane) and the Internet. She has 4 days to confront the Luchorpain or die.

This is not the best film for Zane fans. The story had me bored. While there is some blood and guts, much of the killing is hidden and the creature looks rubbery.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, nudity, or Jennifer Aniston.

Reviewed by Amanda Jane Volovik "Chava": A Perfunctory red-headed, green-eyed Irish-American girl heroine pitted against the not-so-Lucky Charms Leprechaun, more like a Leprechaun/Grinch half-breed that cross-bred with the Alien. That's about it. Instead watch the VERY funny (and sometimes scary) Leprechaun series with Warwick Davis, this one is so dullll....

A young woman hunting with her grandpa picks a red clover, unwittingly releasing a very nasty leprechaun and putting a death curse on herself unless she can trap the monster and return it to where it was buried. This actually has a lot going for it--it's not a vampire movie or a zombie movie or a paranormal activity rip-off; it has an extremely likable cast; it's from After Dark Films which generally has pretty good quality control. Unfortunately this horror comedy is never particularly suspenseful or amusing and for a movie that is generally light-hearted it shows a badly misjudged callousness towards the killing of its major characters. This is worth sitting through once but it could have been so much better.

This movie oddly had all of the previews and lead up indicating it to be part of the After Dark collection, but it's not marketed that way. I didn't realize it was a SyFy movie, but that makes sense now that I know. It was pretty much on par with what they tend to put together. Teenage girl picks a red clover while hunting with her grandfather. Apparently this makes her a target for the (least leprechaun looking) leprechaun that the townsfolk had previously sucked all the luck out of. Meh at best.

This actually turned out to be a pretty entertaining horror film for me. If you take it for what it is (B-grade horror movie about an ancient Leprechaun) and just enjoy it then you won't be let down! What more can you ask for than Sheriff Billy Zane on patrol while a murderous Leprechaun is on a killing spree! Definitely worth a watch in my book.

Evil Leprechaun brutally kills town folk, no one believes the leading actress, but people still get killed. I didn't see all of this terrible movie. Didn't know Leprechauns could drive a car. I guess it was going to make its big appearance at the town's St. Patrick's Day celebration, but I couldn't wait for it.

Yeah, I saw this on SyFy channel (albeit with a different name). Couldn't even finish watching it for free on TV. Forget about paying for rental. If you like SyFy's brand of cheesy & campy movies, then, well, maybe. But for the grown-ups, ore even mature kids: No. Just No.

At no point was this film any good.. Worst lead ever holes all in the plot. Poorly written to say the least. Save your money
