If you're young enough, this tale of a man-eating plant might scare you. If you're old enough, it'll make you laugh. Little Shop of Horrors is the insane story of lonely florist Seymour (Jonathan Haze) and his hungry plant, Audrey Jr. Seymour will go to great lengths to make sure Audrey Jr. is fed and happy. With a cast that includes Dick Miller, Jackie Joseph, and a very young Jack Nicholson as a scene stealing dental patient, director Roger Corman and screenwriter Charles Griffith give us a comic horror masterpiece for the ages!
