Leprechaun Origins

Bursting onto the scene in 1993, and making a name for himself by terrorizing a young Jennifer Aniston, the Leprechaun has gone on to become a bonafide horror icon over the years, appearing in five subsequent sequels. After looking for a bride and traveling to Las Vegas, the pint-sized terror was sent off to space and made two pit stops in 'tha hood,' with the final film in the franchise seeing release exactly 10 years after it started, in 2003.

This year, the Leprechaun returns in the form of Leprechaun: Origins, a WWE-produced effort that's set to reboot the popular series. WWE superstar Dylan 'Hornswoggle' Postl (above) slaps on the little green hat this time around, which marks the first time the titular Leprechaun has been played by someone other than Warwick Davis. The reboot has been described as being much darker than the Leprechaun films Davis appeared in, going for scares rather than laughs.

Being that today is St. Patrick's Day and all, WWE has just released the very first clip from Leprechaun: Origins, which is set for release sometime in the summer of this year. Check it out below, and be sure to let us know what you think!
