The Little Shop of Horrors

8/5/1960; 71 minutes

Roger Corman's beloved cult classic tells the bizarre and tragic tale of Seymour Krelboyne, a nebbishy floral shop employee seeking to impresses his co-worker Audrey by growing a special plant he names "Audrey Jr." Seymour's life grows ever-more complicated once he discovers his prized plant thrives on human blood and body parts. Matters do not proceed smoothly. Featuring a very young (and very funny) Jack Nicholson as a masochistic dental patient, this film inspired a musical and film based thereupon, but the original still reigns supreme as the "Citizen Kane" of films shot in 3 days. (USA, 1960, B&W, Horror-Comedy, dir. Roger Corman with Jonathan Haze, Jackie Joseph, Mel Welles, Dick Miller, Jack Nicholson.) (#35578)
