Little Shop of Horrors
Don't feed the plants.
Seymour Krelborn is a nerdy orphan working at Mushnik's, a flower shop in urban Skid Row. He harbors a crush on fellow co-worker Audrey Fulquard, and is berated by Mr. Mushnik daily. One day as Seymour is seeking a new mysterious plant, he finds a very mysterious unidentified plant which he calls Audrey II. The plant seems to have a craving for blood and soon begins to sing for his supper.
Little Shop of Horrors is probably my favorite musical and this is coming from someone who doesn't like musicals (in general, there are always a few exceptions). My older sister was in a high school production so I remember a time where her taped performance and this movie were in constant rotation if she was in the living room, but surprisingly, her grumpy, mischievous and weird little sister didn't mind.
Last night I revisited the movie for the first time in many, many years and watching it on blu-ray was magnificent. The colors were brilliantly sharp and the director's cut is the movie that everyone should have been watching for all of these years. The original ending is a sight…

Ladies and gentlemen, If you consider yourself a musical fan and you haven't seen this movie, then you aren't a musical fan. It's just that simple. In my eyes at least, this is THE musical. Combining a fantastic story, wonderful and mesmerizing songs, perfect and charming characters, smooth and seamless pacing; It's all capped off with some of the best puppetry ever to grace the silver screen.
If you're looking for a roller-coaster of a good time, then look no further than Little Shop of Horrors.
The story follows Seymour, played by Rick Moranis, who is an employee in a local flower shop located in skidrow. The film takes an interesting turn as the…
The greatest remake ever.
The best Rick Moranis film there has been.
All other musicals pale into insignificance.
This ain't got nothing on Phantom of the Paradise or The Rocky Horror Picture Show, but neither does any other musical in existence.
"This is between me and the vegetable." - Seymour
Frankly, I've never much cared for musicals. Well regarded classics such as The Sound of Music and Singing in the Rain don't give me the magical feeling that I think they do for a lot of others. The genre has never really resonated with me, and in all honestly I didn't think I would ever really gel with a musical. That mindset changed a little when I saw The Rocky Horror Picture Show earlier this year. I didn't fall in love with it, but I appreciated the weird tone of it all. After watching Little Shop of Horrors, I am starting to think that maybe it is just the standard-fare of…
Fantastic. Remarkably my first ever viewing and went straight for the directors cut. I can't imagine the ending any other way. Moranis, Candy, Martin and Murray. What a cast!
The director's cut of this film gives it a darker ending and the feel of a horror b-movie.
Frank Oz’s funny and visually impressive adaptation of the Howard Ashman musical is a wonderful combination of the best elements of theatre and film. Perfect songs, lovely sets, hilarious casting, and an imposingly intricate creation in Audrey II, there is very little to complain about this cartoonishly macabre comedy.
I have put off watching this classic movie for quite some time but now I wish I had seen it sooner. The movie was pretty weird but loads of fun. I generally tend to like musicals and found that all of the songs here were entertaining and very catchy. You could tell that this was based on a play, as the small sets and acting style gave it a real stage show feel. The movie was also very 80’s which I loved and the puppetry work was terrific and much better than if special effects had been used. I’ve been humming the songs from this movie for days now and I will be keeping an eye out for when I can find a live version to go see.
Such a great movie, with such awesome music. I've had songs stuck in my head all week. Also, that puppet work. SO DAMN GOOD.
beautifully narrated musical
First time seeing the director's cut ending. Holy moly.
kinda enjoyed it more than I thought I would. Steve Martin was the best no doubt. oh and bill murray
I had somehow never seen this before, or if I had it was limited to five minutes of it on TV.
I didn't know much of what to expect going in, but it certainly wasn't that it would end the way it did.
Many favorites, as well as a small handful of films that I don't care for... in no particular order (1960-2014).
a list that is trying to contain every horror film made that is not lost and is found on the…
