HeckleVision: LEPRECHAUN IN THE HOOD (Mason/Katy)
March 17, 2012
Alamo Drafthouse Mason (Katy) presents HeckleVision: LEPRECHAUN IN THE HOOD.
Unless they're the ultra-hilarious Master Pancake Theater, there's nothing more annoying than people heckling a movie. Their voices interrupt the characters, and even if their jokes are really good you end up missing some key line of dialog that would make the next joke even better.
Enter HeckleVision - we pick some hilariously horrible movies (but movies we can't help but love anyway) and through the magic of MuVChat technology we let you text your heckles silently from your seat as they then magically appear up on the screen alongside the main action. ANYTHING goes in this all out assault on crappy cinema and you can bask in the glory of your textual genius or recoup from a whiff as you prepare your next text. When you don't have anything to contribute to the heckle conversation you can sit back and enjoy other peoples' snarky comments. So charge up those cell phones and prepare your wit because it's heckling time!
LEPRECHAUN IN THE HOOD
Director Rob Spera
Starring Warwick Davis, Ice-T and Anthony Montgomery
Run Time 100min
"A friend with weed is a friend indeed, but a friend with gold is the best I'm told."
He's been to the country side, downtown, Las Vegas, he's even been to space...now that Leprechaun's in da hood to do no good! Cause there ain't nothing scarier than a Lep in DA HOOD!
Three aspiring rap artists get wronged by local pimp Mack Daddy and set out for revenge by stealing a bunch of his stuff. They thought they'd get enough to make it to Vegas for their big break, but what they didn't count on was stealing a mystical medallion that awakens a Leprechaun statue that will stop at nothing to get his gold back. Ice-T has a star-making turn (Seriously, he hasn't been this good since acting opposite a psychic dolphin in JOHNNY MNEMONIC) in this Warwick Davis vehicle of theft and murder.
When the drama runs this high there is only one solution to tempering that incredible tension...and that's HECKLEVISION. So charge up your phones, make sure you got an unlimited texting plan and prepare to see all your textual heckles appear ON SCREEN alongside this thugs vs. Irish folklore masterpiece. Anything goes in this all-out assault on bad movie-making, so make sure you're strapped in for a lexiconic battle of wits. (Greg MacLennan)
