Little Shop Of Horrors

Director: Frank Oz
Duration: 94 minutes
Have you seen The Rocky Horror Picture Show? Take all of it's quirkiness and amp it up by ten. It's a science fiction romcom.
This nerdy little man (Moranis) discovers a new type of plant. The only problem with it is the only thing it will eat is human blood. The bigger it gets, the more it needs. Which of course leads to Seymour killing people to keep the plant alive. (Kinda a false statement. He never actually kills anybody.) He winds up getting the girl of his dreams along the way, but the media coverage of his incredible, murderous plant is putting pressure on him. All the TV shows, magazine covers, and radio spots are pushing his already guilty conscience to the edge. The threat of developing mini Audrey Twos makes up his mind on what he really has to do.
This giant robotic plant is the best thing I have ever seen. This movie was made in 1986 and I've never seen anything that hasn't been computer generated look so amazing. It's so life like. Wonderful special effect. Not to mention it's a musical, perfectly hilarious, with just the right pinch of romance. Everybody should watch this movie. My top ten list for sure.
