You enter a small little flower shop on skid row. It's crowded with people and a large plant looking like a venus fly trap, but much larger, sits in a corner drawing most peoples attention. The faces in the crowd look familiar, people like Dick Miller, Jack Nicholson, Jonathan Haze, Jackie Joseph, Mel Welles are on one side of the room with Roger Corman who looks puzzling across the room at Frank Oz who has a crowd behind him. People like Rick Morranis, Ellen Green, Vincent Gardenia, Steve Martin, Bill Murray, Jim Belushi, and John Candy are staring back at Corman and his crew snapping there fingers and humming. It is all so odd. The plant looks your way and gives you a wry smile, almost winking despite having no eyes. You turn back out the door and decide to order your flowers online because this is just to weird!
Welcome to the odd little world of Little Shop of Horrors! Today the Invaders eye their salads a little more cautiously after watching the original 1960 Corman film and the musical remake from 1986 by Frank Oz! Don't be frightened off by a musical, it also has a giant man-eating plant! Good times. Or is it? Listen to this week's episode to see how these films hold up to each other and the Invasion criticism.
