LUCKY HARMS

For those looking to cap their St. Patrick’s Day celebration with a cult-movie fix, Nitehawk has you covered with its screening of Mark Jones’s 1993 Leprechaun. The setup is predictably silly — a pissed-off leprechaun arrives in North Dakota to recover his stolen pot of gold — but there is a certain satisfaction in the English actor Warwick Davis’s commitment to the eponymous role (this first Leprechaun has the added incentive of featuring a pre-Friends Jennifer Aniston). Davis — at the time a few years removed from Willow — has returned to the series in a bevy of sequels ranging from Leprechaun 4: In Space to Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood, and his enthusiasm for the enterprise can be summed up by the following passage from his 2011 memoir, Size Matters Not: “I know the Leprechaun movie franchise is not to everyone’s taste but I had a great time making them and I’m proud of my performances in every one of those crazy films.”
