Leprechaun 4 (1996) from Tuna

Leprechaun 4: In Space (1996) goes beyond bad, all the way to atrocious,  nauseating, bilious and abominable.  This time, the Leprechaun alternates between a bad Brit and ok Irish accent, lives in space, and has the ability to be blown up and automatically reassemble himself. 
The "Space Marines" are buff and brave, but are at a loss with people who won't stay blown up. 

Rebekah Carlton plays an alien space princess, and shows her breasts as a sign that she is going to kill someone. This was her second, and, so far, final film.

IMDB says 2.8/10, despite the fact that 33 people (probably the entire cast and crew) gave it a 10. Tuna says F.

Scoop's notes:

There is a possibility that those people gave it a 10 because of the good-bad cycle. Many people commented that the film is completely worthwhile because it really is bad enough that you can enjoy watching it with rowdy friends, in conjunction with substance abuse.

Or perhaps the people who voted a 10 were in the process of substance abuse.

I haven't seen this film, but everything I've read about it indicates that it is a genuine contender as the worst film ever made.

On the other hand, it is a sub-genre masterpiece. It is probably the Citizen Kane of evil outer space leprechaun movies.

... and you have to love any movie which portrays a culture wherein a sentence of death is declared not by a Mafia-like kiss, but by baring ones breasts. That should become an earth staple as well, except for Janet Reno.

The Critics Vote

The People Vote ...

  • With their votes ... IMDB summary: IMDb voters score it 2.8/10
IMDb guideline: 7.5 usually indicates a level of excellence, about like three and a half stars from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm watchability, about like two and a half stars from the critics. The fives are generally not worthwhile unless they are really your kind of material, about like two stars from the critics. Films under five are generally awful even if you like that kind of film, equivalent to about one and a half stars from the critics or less, depending on just how far below five the rating is.

My own guideline: A means the movie is so good it will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not good enough to win you over if you hate the genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an open mind about this type of film. C means it will only appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover appeal. D means you'll hate it even if you like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if you love the genre. F means that the film is not only unappealing across-the-board, but technically inept as well.

Based on this description, this film is an F.
