Late last year, we brought you a story about a proposed Candyman vs Leprechaun movie (which, thankfully, was shot down when Tony Todd made it clear he would not participate in such a farce). Still, it’s not the only proposed match-up considered for the mischievous imp Lubdan (played by Warwick Davis in all but the most recent Leprechaun installment): Fans of the Child’s Play franchise have often fantasized about pitting Chucky against the pot-toking Pixie. This battle makes much more sense than pairing the diminutive gold-hoarder against a seriously terrifying horror icon. (Not to say Chucky isn’t scary, but I’d face him over Candyman any day!)
