A pulp pop twist on the original Roger Corman horror comedy that's funny, fun, catchy, and well worth its reputation.

The best moments in this 1987 release belong to Dr. Steve Martin as a dentist with a professional yen for pain.

One and a half hours of freaky, scary nonsense set to a killer doo-wop soundtrack.

You can try not liking this adaptation of the Off-Broadway musical hit -- it has no polish and a pushy way with a gag -- but the movie sneaks up on you, about as subtly as Audrey II.

For all its expensive excess, fails to recapture the spirit of the original.

Oz was no doubt hired to handle the plant monster puppet, but his brisk, lightweight direction spreads satisfyingly across the entire movie.
