31 Days of Halloween - Day 4 - Movie 2
Seymour Krelboyne (Jonathan Haze) crossbreeds a new plant in order to impress a girl (Jackie Joseph), and his boss (Mel Welles). only to discover that what keeps it growing and thriving is blood, and the bigger it gets the more it wants.
It's been a long time since I've watched The Little Shop of Horrors (1960), Roger Corman's comedy-horror famously shot in two days, featuring Jack Nicholson in a small role, and later turned into a successful off-Broadway musical, and movie version of the musical. The film is still very enjoyable, and some of the comedy still genuinely clever and funny. My daughter also found the voice of the plant (screenwriter Charles B. Griffith) to be more effective, funnier, and creepier, than the voice in the musical remake.
