Seymour is a young man who works in a flower store. He manages to create a carnivorous plant that feeds on human flesh. Nobody knows about it, so Seymour and the plant become good “friends”. The plant needs food to grow up, so it convinces him to start killing people.
This delightful horror-comedy was remarkably shot in just two days and was originally intended as a sequel to director Roger Corman’s ‘Bucket of Blood’ (1959). However, ‘The Little Shop of Horrors’ stands out in its own right as a charming and inventive low-budget horror movie. Throughout the movie we meet a whole variety of weird and wonderful characters including a man who eats plants (played by Dick Miller who would also work with Jackie Joseph in ‘Gremlins’ (1984), a sadistic dentist, a masochistic dental patient (an early performance from Jack Nicholson) and a woman who can’t go a day without a family member passing on. Despite (or maybe because) of the overall absurdity of the movie, ‘The Little Shop of Horrors’ manages to be strangely captivating yet portray an air of darkness in the right places.
