In the darkest corners of the Grimm Universe there are legends told of an ancient race of evil powerful beings who have rarely been seen in any of the realms. Creatures who vast powers are only dwarfed by their insatiable greed, and cruel natures. A creature that is about to be unleashed on an unsuspecting family with horrific results when they cross paths with…the Leprechaun! The first ever Grimm Fairy Tales St. Patrick’s Day one shot debuts here from the company that does horror best!
