Little Shop of Horrors is a true classic from director Roger Corman! Corman has been called the King of Schlock, but he has proved consistently over the years that with a little money and some enthusiastic help, you can make a great movie...cheap! This is a prime example. Little Shop of Horrors is obviously made on a shoe-string budget...but it's great fun! It's about a young flower store employee who is on the verge of losing his job...until he introduces his boss to his new hybrid plant he has found. His boss gives him another chance...as long as his plant gets healthy and strong. Which is not easy...until he learns that blood is what it needs to grow. Shortly chaos ensues as people around the young man begin to die and he uses their blood to feed his plant. But how long will his luck hold out and he can find scum to feed to it...or he gets caught or must really begin committing murders? The beauty of this film is in the eccentric cast of characters and the absurd situations. Long before David Lynch was using weird characters and stories to populate his films, Corman had mastered it. You can't help but be drawn into even the worst of his films...and this is one of his best! Don't miss it!

Fun, once you get past the camp

"First off, this is NOT a good movie. It does NOT star Jack Nicholson, either (he has a very small, though very funny role). That said, it is really fun to watch. Although it's a bit hard to imagine, this is a horror-comedy. If you think about the plot, it is a horror movie, but it doesn't take itself seriously and you shouldn't think about the plot. It plays up it's campiness. This film is known for being the movie shot in two days. It's a wonderful example of low budget done not too badly. Little Shop of Horrors is entertaining, and its a must-see if you're a fan of the amazing musical, since you get a sense of how the production evolved. If you want a chilling movie or one that requires any mental work, this one can't begin to satisfy you. If you're willing to pay for a really fun movie which gives you a glimpse into the start of a great actor and a great musical, by all means buy this."
