* RetroactiveRecognition: In away the writer of this (and his other films) do have a pattern. A weird "creature", teen characters, supernatural adventures, on/off sense of continuity, lots of verbal banter. What's this all mean? Turns out Mark Jones the writer, was also a writer at CreanaBarbera and Cater/RubySpears for many years. It will be quite hard to unsee the influence once you do.

* ExecutiveMeddling: What turned out to be a positive version. The original film was supposed to be a kid-friendly horror film. The producers felt it would work better as an adult themed horror film, and additional scenes were shot to up the gore quotient. And thus, a horror franchise was born...

** The studio wanted the then-unknown Jennifer Aniston to bleach her hair blonde for the first film. The director refused.
* OldShame:
** Jennifer Aniston recalls being quite proud of the film early on, since it was her first. But then she became famous for ''{{Series/Friends}}'' and thus a campy horror flick didn't reflect too well on her.
** Subverted with Warwick Davis. He was ashamed of the film at first, but he warmed to it when it became popular.



** There were plans to have the Bluewater Productions comic series crossover with the ''Film/{{Warlock}}'' comics made by the same company.
*** On the subject of crossovers, according to TonyTodd, he was once approached about a possible {{Candyman}} vs Leprechaun film. Todd sat there in StunnedSilence trying to process that the man was serious.
** [[WordOfSaintPaul Warwick Davis]] also claimed that a seventh film was going to be set in the WildWest, but the franchise is apparently (finally) dead.
*** Davis has also mentioned a potential pirate-themed sequel in numerous interviews. Whether this was ever a concrete idea or mere wishful thinking isn't clear.
*** Recently, Brian Trenchard-Smith, the director of 3 and 4 revealed that years back he had pitched another film that would have placed the Leprechaun in the White House.

** Early drafts for ''Origins'' were actually a lot closer in tone with the original movies.
*** Considering that Hornswoggle has always been used as joke character (andwas originally said to be an actualleprechaun) it would've been moreappropriate to conntinue in Davis' tradition.
