The Little Shop of Horrors Reviews
Very slapsticky, very short and very stupid. Some moments, and there's a hot babe here but mostly interesting since it's one of Jack Nicholson's very first.
3.5 out of 10 plant eaters.
Seymour works for a struggling flower shop owner and his beautiful daughter. Seymour and the daughter are in love, of sorts, while Seymour nurtures a unique plant to life that has a presence that sparks success in the flower shop. The unfortunate news is the new good luck plant requires more and more blood to survive.
"You may have been a crummy dentist but you were a nice fella."
Roger Corman, director of House of Usher, The Terror, The Raven, Last Woman on Earth, Bloody Mama, The Wild Angels, and The Secret Invasion, delivers Little Shop of Horrors. The storyline for this picture is epic, funny, and marvelously entertaining. I loved the script and the way the characters were presented. The acting was excellent and the cast includes Jonathan Haze, Jackie Joseph, Mel Welles, and Dick Miller.
"Master would like more fat."
This was airing on Turner Classic Movies (TCM) this Halloween season and I had to DVR it. This is an all time classic and maybe my favorite Corman picture. This was a masterpiece that is worth watching on an annual basis.
"Oh goody, goody here he comes."
