LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS

Part of Music City Mondays.

Shy amateur botanist Seymour (Rick Moranis) tinkers his nights away in the basement of Mushnik's failing Flower Shop, hoping to create a fetching plant hybridization that will save the ‘skid row’ business on skids (and his much-needed job). His only other work perk is working alongside floral designer Audrey (Ellen Greene), a lovely girl that looks for love but lands a sadist - Orin Scrivello, DDS (Steve Martin). Seymour’s salvation falls to earth in the form of a man-eating plant from outer space - Audrey II - with the power to give poor Seymour everything he lacks in life. When Audrey II’s appetite becomes insatiable, Seymour must choose between the high life or the high road.

Featuring Tisha Campbell in her film debut and Steve Martin in one of his most iconic performances, alongside appearances from Jim Belushi, John Candy, Christopher Guest, and Bill Murray with Levi Stubbs of the Four Tops voicing Audrey II.

This presentation of the Director’s Cut features the much darker, original 23-minute ending that was excised from the original movie before its release in 1986 by Warner Bros.

“It’s time for the world to…see LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS the way Frank Oz and the entire cast and crew intended for it to be seen. The new ending is intense, crazy, brilliant… It is in every way a better film.” —Alec Kubas-Meyer, filmlinc.org

“LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS’ love affair with the cheesiness of old-school filmmaking climaxes with a glorious restored ending that cycles through a veritable encyclopedia of lovingly realized horror and science-fiction tropes culled from a broad cross-section of B-movie schlock from the ’50s and ’60s.” —Nathan Rabin, A.V. Club
