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…
i've seen this movie more times than i've seen my own father
this is the best movie musical imo it is perfect
people don't sing this well in contemporary movie musicals - also, the plant vfx are 100x better than anything being done now. were this made now, they would have had someone else besides howard ashman write the screenplay and it would have been a mess. these are facts.
Where has this movie been all my life?!
After finding success as a Roger Corman B movie and a Broadway play, Little Shop of Horrors would become a cult classic in its 1986 adaption directed by Frank Oz. Combining 70's style rock songs and 80's style camp, Little Shop of Horrors is an odd-ball, laugh-out-loud musical that will delight its niche audience and send everyone else fleeing from the room. The film's range of appeal is very thin (even more so than the average musical), but those that find themselves within the production's cross-hairs are in for a unique (and uneven) treat.
After years of nonexistent profits, Mr. Mushnik's flower shop is on the verge of collapse. But when his nerdy and bumbling employee, Seymour, finds a strange-looking…
Horror + Musical = Easy Win
Holy shit, Gina from "Martin" is one of the girl group singers. That's the Martin Lawrence sitcom "Martin", not the similarly-themed George Romero vampire film "Martin".
I remember this being a major staple in midday weekend movie rotation on Fox, before they got the NFL contract. I would see it, wonder what the hell it was that I was watching, then keep changing the channel because I was a kid and had a short attention-span.
I love all the 50's throwback aspects of this. The 50's nostalgia that was going on in the 80's made for really interesting hybrids (Streets Of Fire comes to mind).
When you think about it, it's actually kind of surprising that this movie got made.…
"This is between me and the vegetable!"
Bumping my rating up a whole star after watching the Director's cut on blu-ray.
The alternate ending is absolutely fuckin' nuts and and freakin' incredible, and reminiscent of a really pessimistic 50's Sci-Fi movie. The film becomes a completely different beast with this ending, and it's a beast which I definitely prefer.
Rick Moranis is one of the most endearing and likeable movie stars that there ever was.
This is my favorite Steve Martin performance ever.
I love all the musical sequences, but my favorites are; "Dentist!", "Skidrow", "Prologue", "Da-Doo" & "Mean Green Mother from Outer Space".
BILL F'N MURRAY playing the role that a debuting Jack Nicholson did 26 years earlier (Although the…
Very entertaining. Great songs and performances. Steve Martin steals the show, and his scene with Bill Murray is particularly good. I really enjoyed it, but the ending was a bit of a let-down.
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…
