“Little Shop of Horrors” is an iconic American horror comedy musical turned film, but simply put, it is a cult classic. Starring Rick Moranis, Ellen Greene, Vincent Gardenia, and countless iconic cameos, “Little Shop” somehow makes murder endearing when paired with a catchy, early 1960s rock & motown soundtrack. The film follows Seymour, a nerdy flower shop attendant, who seizes an opportunity to jumpstart the straining business, as well as a hopeful romance with his co-worker Audrey. Discovering an alien plant that feeds only on human flesh and blood, this adaptation of an Off-Broadcast musical toes the line between chaotic camp and creative comedy. To honor the madness, personality and mogul, Michelle Collins, joins Matt to dive into everything from the sexuality of an alien plant to the featured tentacle work.
Watch on HBO via HBO Max: “Little Shop of Horrors” until December 31, 2022
