This year’s St. Patrick’s Day celebration might be a little bit different, so Syfy decided to honor the holiday and give everyone stuck at home something to watch by airing Steven Kostanski’s Leprechaun’s Revenge, and Leprechaun Returns tomorrow.

If you’re a fan of horror movies and still want to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day while at home, watching a few Leprechaun movies could be an excellent way to party, especially if you can make a drinking game out of it. Perhaps every time the Leprechaun appears on the screen or every time someone screams. Have fun with it!

Here’s the schedule for the night of March 17th, courtesy of Syfy:

8 pm EST – Leprechaun’s Revenge (2012)
10 pm EST – Leprechaun Returns (2018)
12 am EST – Leprechaun’s Revenge
2 am EST – Leprechaun Returns
4 am EST – Leprechaun’s Revenge

Released in 2013, Leprechaun’s Revenge (also known as Red Clover) received terrible reviews, but if you’re a fan of the great Billy Zane (The Phantom, Titanic), you’ll love this made for tv horror film. Zane plays sheriff from the fictional town of Keening, Massachusetts, who must save his town from a homicidal leprechaun.

Leprechaun Returns (2018) is the eighth film in the horror-comedy franchise and a direct sequel to Leprechaun (1993), which featured Jennifer Aniston in her first major film role. Leprechaun Returns tells the story of a group of sorority sisters who tear down the house seen in the original Leprechaun to build and a new home. In doing so, they inadvertently awaken the Leprechaun, who still wants his gold back. Aniston reprises her roles as Tory Redding, who will be reprising her role from the original, only this time playing the mother of one of the sorority sisters.

Will you be tuning into the mini Leprechaun movie marathon tomorrow night? Let us know in the comments below.
