TV: SyFy’s St. Patrick’s Day Horror ‘Leprecahn’

Shorts helmer Drew Daywalt is making his directorial debut on Leprecahn, a new SyFy Channel production penned by Anthony Ferrante. The title’s misspelling is intentional. Check out the plot crunch. Casting is currently underway.

Sixty-six years ago, the town of Irish Channel in Louisiana was the site of a horrible massacre on St. Patrick’s Day. Some blame a terrible storm that blew through the town, but those that were there don’t speak of the truth. Due to petty superstitions, St. Patrick’s Day festivities were banned for the last 66 years, but now, the new Mayor wants to tempt fate and celebrate.

The film will premiere St. Patrick’s Day on SyFy.
