Revealing mistake: Near the end of the film, when the people are in the house fighting the Leprechaun, one of the characters is using a shotgun. The Leprechaun rides up and down a hallway on a skateboard and the character with the shotgun shoots at him, missing not only the Leprechaun, but everything else as well. Unless he was using a round full of confetti that I've never heard of, he should be shooting the wall and everything else in sight, yet nothing at all is hit. (01:06:50)
Continuity mistake: Officer Tripet gets tired of running and he slumps down against a tree. His places his left arm up on the trunk and it slides down so that now his hand is down atop his knee. The shot changes to his front and now the hand and arm are back up on the tree trunk above his shoulder.
