description

Little Shop of Horrors is a 1986 American rock musical horror comedy film directed by Frank Oz. It is a film adaptation of the off-Broadway musical comedy of the same name by composer Alan Menken and writer Howard Ashman about a nerdy florist shop worker who raises a vicious, raunchy plant that feeds on human blood. Menken and Ashman's Off-Broadway musical was based on the low-budget 1960 film 'The Little Shop of Horrors', directed by Roger Corman.
The 1986 film stars Rick Moranis, Ellen Greene, Vincent Gardenia, Steve Martin, and Levi Stubbs as the voice of Audrey II. The film also featured special appearances by James Belushi, John Candy, Christopher Guest, and Bill Murray. It was produced by David Geffen through The Geffen Company and released by Warner Bros. on December 19, 1986.


This year is the movie's 30th anniversary so to celebrate I came up with this challenge inspired by the memorable soundtrack.

Elaine Howlin (elainehowlinbooks) Would The Blushing Bounder be ok for #9. "Suddenly, Seymour" – Read a book with an alliterative title. (Title is at least two words and all words begin with the same letter.)?


message 41: by [deleted user] (new)

I really meant for all words to begin with the same letter like The Two Towers or Aiding and Abetting but I think other people have used titles that began with 'the' or 'a' and I've allowed it so yes, that will be fine :)

And now I really am away - Merry Christmas!!
