Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Seymour, an orphan and a nerd, is taken in and given a job by Mr. Mushnik, the owner of a run down Florists in the seedy part of town. Seymour spends his time doing menial tasks and dreaming of the shop assistant, Audrey. One day, just after an eclipse of the Sun, Seymour discovers a strange plant. He buys it and names is Audrey II. While caring for Audrey II, Seymour discovers the plant's rather unique appetite. The plant grows and grows, as does Seymour's infatuation for Audrey, but who will get her first? FEED ME!
Don't feed the plants.

More Movie Taglines:
- Don't feed the plants.
- A Singing Plant. A Daring Hero. A Sweet Girl. A Demented Dentist.
- Audrey II: Does this look "inanimate" to you, punk? If I can move and I can talk, who's to say I can't do anything I want?
Audrey II: [singing] If you wanna be profound, if you really gotta justify, take a breath and look around, a lot of folks deserve to die!
Audrey II: [singing] I'm just a mean green mother from outer space and I'm bad!
Audrey: [singing] I'd cook like Betty Crocker and I'd look like Donna Reed!
[the masochistic patient meets the sadistic dentist] Arthur Denton: I think I need a root canal. I definitely need a long, slow root canal.
- Originally included an extended sequence for the song "The Meek Shall Inherit".
The neon sign "CHOOZ" blinks the "OZ"; the director's surname.
The bizarre equipment used by sadistic dentist Orin Scrivello has made numerous appearances in other Warner Bros. productions, notably as Jeremy Irons' gynecology tools in Dead Ringers (1988) and as the Joker's plastic surgeon's tools in Batman (1989). (Jack Nicholson (as the Joker in "Batman") and Bill Murray, in a twist, had both played the Arthur Denton patient in their respective films.)
The scenes in which the two largest Audrey II puppets are performing with the actors are filmed at a lower speed. First at 16 frames per second, then at 12 frames per second for the final number. This means that the actors had to move and lip sync in slow motion.
It supposedly took Steve Martin six weeks to film all his scenes.
