Editorial Reviews

A classic tale of boy-meets-girl/plant-eats-people, starring Jack Nicholson in one of his first film roles. A hapless flower store clerk grows an exotic plant with an insatiable appetite -- for blood and flesh! As the ruthless plant grows larger and larger with each feeding, so do Seymour's affections for pretty shop girl, Audrey. The madness culminates with Seymour and his bloodthirsty plant in a feeding frenzy of epic proportions. This camp favorite gets a makeover with the hilarious, rapid-fire commentary by Mike Nelson and the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Okay, I didn't just imagine it -- one of the riffs really is a throwaway reference to Roger Corman's SAGA OF THE VIKING WOMEN (1957). It's not all that funny, but I like the über-geekiness of an obscure joke by and for people who spend way too much time watching crappy old movies. Speaking of which, they don't come much crappier than this alleged comedy, a nightmare distillation of every bad comedy routine in circulation on late 1950s television. The Borscht Belt shtick is thicker than cold shmaltz on a day old bialy, and harder to swallow.

The disc gives you the option of watching this 1960 "classic" with or without the riffing (you get the same video distortion either way). I take mine with; it's less painful that way.

When the movie mocking show MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 went off the air in 1999, it took a few years for the cast and crew to get back into the saddle. For Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett, they eventually started The Film Crew. The premise was slightly different (three guys working for a DVD production company forced to make commentary tracks) but the result was the same (three guys watching bad movies and keeping their sanity with the help of their pointed barbs). However, the Film Crew DVDs got held up and in the meantime Nelson started Rifftrax which cut out the surrounding premise and solely featured comedians making fun of movies. For this straight-to-DVD release, the film is a fairly infamous public domain feature.

Roger Corman's THE LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS (1960) is a deliberately silly, campy romp with over the top characters, surreal situations and nonsensical, non-realistic dialog. The main plot concerns a meek and weedy clerk who grows a giant man-eating plant in order to win the affections of a rather dull and ordinary woman. More by accident than design, the clerk manages to keep his creation fed with increasingly random members of the local population until finally the plant's appetite for blood cannot be contained. I wouldn't go so far as to call this a bad movie; it is what it is. It's not intended to be taken seriously and so I found it a little difficult to fully take the mocking in the spirit in which it was intended.

Seriously, what's the point of riffing a movie that's already got its own tongue firmly planted in cheek? I suppose you could spend some time exploring some Corman/Haze/Hollywood of the 50s trivia or something. You could talk about how it was made for a budget that made even Corman snicker behind his hands (I'm guessing). There's all kinds of fun research a mere imdb click away.

Or you could mention 50 times that Seymour wears a scarf and hat all the time.

Sometimes, Rifftrax movies are best watched without the riffing. I think this is one of those times. But then, I prefer their "Plan 9 From Outer Space" unriffed, too, so consider the source.

This is an old and rather cheesy classic which includes Jack Nicholson in his younger years. The movie itself was meant to be made fun of and Mike, Kevin and Bill do a fantastic job. I loved this one as did the group of teens who watched this with me. Not sure why other consumers did not see the fun in this one!

The old MST3K crew of Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett take on one of Roger Corman's cheesiest movies (is that possible?), by riffing this one about a man-eating plant. Some of the guys' best comments are directed to the hapless store clerk, Seymour; Audrey the always-hungry plant; and a very young Jack Nicholson. Some riffs hit the mark but the guys miss a few choice moments, especially between Seymour and Audrey. This is the original black and white movie and NOT the musical, so be prepared for it to be really cheaply made. Also, you will never see the guys in any way. You will only hear the riffs while the movie runs.

For one of the best, check out Rifftrax, "House on Haunted Hill." RiffTrax: House on Haunted Hill - from the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000!

Love the MST3K crew. This isn't quite the same experience, but worth a watch or two.

The only missing links here are the bots and the understory of MST. The humor is still great, fast and multilevel. Buy all your favs. Worth every dime.
