Come on, who doesn't love a good Roger Corman horror/comedy movie?
1960's The Little Shop of Horrors, is one of his best and - we get a cameo from Jack Nicholson to boot.
Seymour, a lonely guy working at a flower shop, finds a plant that likes blood so he starts feeding it. Eventually the plant convinces him to step up his diet.
Corman had been given temporary access to sets at a studio and had only a few days before the sets were to be torn down. He sat with screenwriter Charles B. Griffith, who had wanted to write a horror comedy, at a restaurant and brainstormed ideas with a waitress there. The waitress turned out to be future Oscar nominee Sally Kellerman.
They hashed out an idea but Corman later rejected it. While drunk, Griffith threw out, “How ‘bout a man-eating plant?” Corman said, “Okay” and the rest is history. Corman shot the movie in two days and one night.
Who could ever forget the words, "feed me!"
