Leprechaun 3 (1995)
Nomination Year: 1996
SYNOPSIS: This time, the perverted little creep shows up in Las Vegas, and everyone's luck runs out. A young man named Scott McCoy wanders into a Las Vegas pawn shop and picks up the leprechaun's gold coin. Making an idle wish that he hadn't gambled away his college tuition money, he finds himself back at the roulette wheel with a fortune! Hey -- the coin grants wishes! The leprechaun soon revives and comes after Scott. During one struggle, Scott gets bitten. This leprechaun is evidently part werewolf, because Scott starts slowly turning into a leprechaun over the course of the film. Hijinks ensue as various characters in the sleazy casino discover the coin's wish-giving properties. Eventually, the lep-infected youth and the leprechaun have a showdown, since there can only be one leprechaun in a given area, according to the legend (well, the legend this film professes, anyway).

If You Gotta Go, Go with Style
A couple of gangsters get in the way of the leprechaun's quest to retrieve his gold, with predictible results. As he's being killed, the leader gasps his last words into the lep's face: "Tell me -- What was Judy Garland really like?" I love a bad guy who can die with flair.
