Little Shop of Horrors

Directed by Frank Oz

USA | 94 minutes | 1986

"Feed me Seymour! Feed me all night long." A daring hero. A sweet girl. A demented dentist. And one of the most outrageous singing plants ever! This super cult film adaptation of Howard Ashman’s (MJFF 2019 film Howard) breakthrough Broadway musical stars Rick Moranis as mild-mannered Seymour Krelborn, a down-on-his-luck employee at a plant shop in skid row who is in love with Audrey (Ellen Greene), the unlucky-in-love girlfriend of the most sadistic dentist in town. But everything changes when Seymour finds a strange and unusual new plant that will only grow if given a different sort of plant food — people! As the Audrey II gets bigger and bigger, Seymour finally realizes that he needs to stop it before it can take over the world, but can he destroy the alien plant and get the girl?
