Little Shop of Horrors – ★★½

I don’t know how old I was when I first saw this (or more accurately small parts of it) as a kid but to this day I remembered being totally terrified of Audrey II. Turns out still totally creeped out by it.

Finally decided to actually sit and watch it on Max after watching the really great Howard Ashman doc on Disney+. Music is great and so is Rick Moranis but man it is just so, so weird.

I don’t know what to call the style of humor from late 70s to 80s but “whatever fully weird Steve Martin thinks is funny” I just don’t personally find funny at all. (I like a lot of Steve Martin movies from this era just not when he goes full Steve Martin.)

Had hoped my musical loving kid would be into this but she’ll definitely think it’s too scary and “old”. Oh well. Glad I finally caught up with it.
