Tech specs will include a 1080p digitally remastered high definition transfer for the Blu-ray. Audio will be mixed in 5.1 Dolby TrueHD for the BD.
This release will not only include the theatrical cut (on BD), but also a completely restored, never-before-seen Director's Cut of the film, featuring a drastically different, and much darker, 20-minute alternate ending.
Here's a note about the restoration direct from Warner, "The footage of the original ending was previously available only in black & white in the extra content of a limited number of copies of a DVD edition released in 1998. Now, with the help of production notes from Frank Oz and others on the film's creative team, WHV has meticulously restored and digitally remastered the ending, in full color, with the elaborate special effects in tact. Sound has also been rebuilt and mixed in Dolby 5.1. The theatrical version has also been re-mastered."

*Theatrical version of the film with optional commentary
*The Director's Cut featuring the newly restored 20-minute alternate ending

*"Frank Oz and Little Shop of Horrors: The Director's Cut," an introduction by Frank Oz with Richard Conway

I've seen and performed in this play many times. The play has a VERY different ending than the movie version, SO I was really excited when I found the director's cut that offered the alternative ending. However, I was skeptical when purchasing this disk because I wanted to have the OPTION of the original or alternative endings. While reading reviews, one of them said that both endings were offered, so I decided to buy this disk.
This is why I'm disappointed:
> The alternative ending offered in the director's cut is WEIRD. It is not like any of them I have seen before and it seems out of place and excessive. (It is still worth watching if you are a fan of the movie. But it probably is not what you are expecting.)
> More importantly, this disk DOES NOT offer multiple endings. The alternative ending is all that you get, and you have no option watch the original theatrical ending.
It is still worth purchasing this movie because it is hard to go wrong with Little Shop of Horrors, and 90% of the movie is just as charming as ever. Just be warned that the only ending offered with the Director's Cut is alternative one.
The sound is incredible -- the best mix of this movie, I've ever heard in any medium.
It's worth the price just to finally see the cut original ending.
... and the little note from Frank Oz about the cut ending is pretty great.
if you're a fan of this movie -- YOU NEED THIS.
... more of a point of discussion (the cut ending in great to finally see -- FIVE stars for this blu-ray)
... Technically, the cut ending of the movie is the ending of the off-broadway show, it's the same song, etc -- but i can see why audiences didn't spark to the movie's end. For one thing - it's played much sadder in the movie than the show. The slow death of Audrey, the close-ups of her tears, Seymour being devoured sooooo slowly... it's sad. in the musical, it all happens pretty quick, and it's pretty campy.
AND -- more importantly -- the musical ends on an UPBEAT note:
Sure, seymour and Audrey die -- but they come right back on stage, to sing the final song. They're dead for thirty seconds, then they come out again, singing. And they're still together.
In Frank Oz's ending they die, and are gone forever, the monsters take over the world.
In the SHOW's ending -- the last lines are:
"if we fight it, we still got a chance!"
then Seymour and Audrey sing to each other (albeit, as flowers) "We've got tomorrow!!!"
"Don't fee the plants"
Yes they die -- but they come back, sing a really fun song, and say that they have tomorrow...
the movie ends with their death, and the end of the world...Read more ›
