Little Shop of Horrors, 1986 – ★★★★★ (contains spoilers)

This review may contain spoilers.

The only problem i have with the “bummer cut” of Little Shop of Horrors is that it takes away Seymour's final redemption. In the play he says “Maybe you're tough on the outside, but in that pod, I'll hack you to bits” and jumps in with a machete.

In the film, from the beginning of Mean Green Mother, Seymour is doomed, and after the plant destroys the flower shop it lifts him up and grimmly eats him.

Seymour didn't deserve the happy ending of the original release, as he got off scott free. But he did deserve a moment of agency.

Oh well, it's still amazing.
