    When I saw the title I almost shit my pants because I thought it was the remake 😛

    • October 12, 2015 at 1:45 am

      Again, it’s not a remake. It’s an adaptation of the stage musical.

        Yes, I know…but it’s so much easier to just say “remake” instead of “adaption of the stage musical”.

    A great cult classic

  • October 11, 2015 at 4:09 am

    I’ve recently watched “The Terror” and “Bucket of Blood” and love both of them, Dick Miller and Roger Corman are geniuses with latter one having the rather unique ability to turn catastrophic production values into great cult movies with a meaning for a change. Probably should watch this one too. It’s good there are a lot of Corman films in public domain, because in a way, that is a serious education on how to make films on budget or, rather, without one.

      Id have to agree, of all the “famous” B movie directors. Corman stands as a hero above them all.

    After Cinemassacre I’ll never look at old movies the same way…

    I always wondered why you haven’t done this movie or it’s remake. But hey better late than never.

    Wow! Rick moranis looks like crap in this movie, kidding, great video James. By the way I was Wondering when your going to do reviews of some of the more modern horror movies? Such as insidious, sinister, paranormal activity, mama, hollow, the houses October built etc.?

  • October 11, 2015 at 1:30 pm

    I always found it odd that the actress who plays Audrey in this film would go on to play Mrs. Futterman to Dick Miller’s Mr. Futterman. You never would have thought of them as a pair in this film.

    FEED ME SEYMOUR!! Classic

    Technically, if it’s an adaptation of the stage production, it’s not a remake.

    Nice! I <3 the 1986 version. I used to see that play on TV a lot back in the 90s. I would just record the TV aired version on VHS and rewatch it as I sing along with the songs.

      Really loved the practical effects, and voicework of the late Levi Stubbs who also did the voice for Mother Brain in Captain N: The Game Master

    James and Mike, is my brain shitting me or did I see you two walking down bridge Street in my hometown(blobtown) last night? Maybe i’ve been watching too much cinemassacre but I could’ve sworn i saw you two walking with your girls while I was working. I knew you’ve been here before obviously, but never thought I’d have a chance to witness it.

    Anyway nice review as always. I love dark comedy so i have to check these out. Thanks guys

    Okay, that’s it, guys, I want my account deleted. I can’t take this “invisible videos because of AdBlock” shit anymore.

    Yeah, that whole concept of using a now big name actor and promoting them on the video box when it’s just a one-scene role before they were famous is pretty shameless.

    Very interesting James i find your knowledge of movies to be incredible

    Hey! You guys should review Beyond the Black Rainbow! It’s on Netflix streaming . . . one of the trippiest sci-fi / horror films in years! Some of the best use of texture and lighting I’ve ever seen.

      That includes you too. Don’t try to act like you feel differently.

      • SeraphStar

        October 12, 2015 at 2:37 am

        Because no one actually likes J&MM and other unscripted videos. That’s just fanboy groveling.

        Oh my god I’m so afraid that Mike’s gonna delete my comments! Maybe even DEACTIVATE MY ACCOUNT!

    No. NO. I completely disagree. Do NOT see the original ending. “Dont feed the plants” is the WORST song of the movie/play, whereas “Green Mean Motha” is one of the BEST songs. The original ending is from the play (and maybe the 1960 movie), but it sucks big time when they have such a great alternative.

    • October 12, 2015 at 1:19 am

      I’m not saying you’re wrong, because you’re entitled to your opinion, and I also like the happy ending. But I want to say that “Mean Green Mother” (which is also a favorite of mine) is also present in the original ending. It’s not exclusive to the more well-known ending.

      But, again, I’m not faulting your opinion for the rest of it. Have a good one.

    It might be a recent movie, but I’d like you to review ‘It follows’, it was such a nice horror movie for me, I mean it wasn’t a master piece but I think it was something different from all the remakes and prequels and stuff everyone is doing in recent years.

    The 1986 horrors is one of my all time favorite films. Seen it at least 20 times since i was a kid. Never knew there was an alternate ending. You blew my mind. It was the most incredible thing i have ever seen.

    The day of the triffids would be a good review.

    Little Shop Of Horrors isn’t a horror movie. It’s more of a black comedy.

  • October 14, 2015 at 9:17 am

    The original seems friggin hilarious.

    Oh nice!! I never knew that was young Jack Nicholson.

    I have not seen this film, but I love the 80’s one. The puppeteering of the plant was simply incredible, I mean just look at the lip sync.

    jackie joseph who played audrey also appeared alongside dick miller in gremlins as mrs. putterman 🙂

    You just warm my heart I love “little shop of horrors” ! The original and stage adaptation Or remake what ever you wanna call them. When I was a kid the 1986 movie make me laugh make me scared and make me laugh again . I saw the original movie when I was 19 year old and I prefer the 1986 movie but the end of the 1960 was much better (not gonna spoiled it ).
    Good classic of horror /comedy movie .

    I’ve never seen this one. I didn’t realize it was black and white, because the posters and video covers are always colored. I always loved the 80s movie, though.
