12 Totally Creepy Leprechauns to Avoid This St. Patrick’s Day

My 7-year-old daughter is totally obsessed with leprechauns. Leading up to St. Patrick’s Day she has been drawing them, writing them notes, searching for them, and she even created a very complex leprechaun trap that involved a box, tape, glue and lots and lots of glitter (according to her, leprechauns can’t resist glitter). Now this all sounds just adorable, except for one fact; leprechauns totally freak me out. I don’t know if it’s their greed for gold, their slightly sinister stare or that they tend to cause mischief where ever they go, but I think it’s a combination of all three. Oh, and these 12 creepy incarnations of leprechauns, yeah, that would creep anyone out. Check them out here:

  • Leprechaun The Movie 2 of 13
    Leprechaun The Movie
    The 1993 film Leprechaun takes on the creepiness of the leprechaun lore and ups the ante to total horror. IMDB describes the film as, "An evil, sadistic Leprechaun goes on a killing rampage in search of his beloved pot of gold." Yeah, I won't be seeing that any time soon.

    This costume is far more suited for Halloween than St. Patrick's Day. If anyone did wear this on March 17th, well I'd be running the other way.
