Little Shop of Horrors is the 1986 remake of the 1960 Roger Corman cult classic, as well as the adaptation of the hit Broadway musical of the same name. Seymour Krelborn (Rick Moranis, Ghostbusters, Strange Brew, My Blue Heaven) is a poor nebbish working in a nearly-bankrupt Skid Row flower shop, owned by his crabby guardian Mr. Mushnik (Vincent Gardenia, Moonstruck, Death Wish, The Hustler), alongside the girl of his dreams, high pitch voiced Audrey (Ellen Greene, The Professional, Talk Radio, One Fine Day). Business is lagging as Seymour dreams of getting out the drudgery of his life ' but things begin looking up when he purchases a strange and unusual, Venus Fly Trap-like plant that he places in the shop's window, which draws a flood of new interest in the place. Things take a bizarre turn however when, noting the plant's failing condition, he discovers what it needs to thrive ' human blood. From there, things spiral out of control as Audrey II, as the plant is know, starts growing not only in size ' but in voracious appetite as well.moreless
