Little Shop of Horrors: The Director’s Cut
Sunday, Oct 23 at 1:00 pm
Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Frank Oz. 1986/2012, 94 mins. DCP. With Rick Moranis, Ellen Greene, Vincent Gardenia, Steve Martin, Levi Stubbs. Frank Oz’s first non-Muppet film is one of the great musicals of the 1980s, following down-and-out flower shop assistant Seymour (Moranis) who becomes a national sensation when he discovers an exotic plant that craves fresh blood. Soon Audrey II (an elaborate puppet created by Henson Creature Shop alumnus Lyle Conway and voiced by Stubbs of The Four Tops) grows into an ill-tempered, foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore. Little Shop of Horrors features a sensational Greene as Seymour’s dippy love interest Audrey, Martin as a hilariously sadistic dentist, and sensational songs by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman. Upon negative test screenings, the studio made Oz change the dark ending; this director’s cut restores the original film as intended.
