Little Shop of Horrors

Seymour Krelborn is the nerdy, orphan employee of Mushnik’s, a flower shop on urban skid row, where he harbors a crush on Audrey, his coworker. After no business, Mr. Mushnik decides to close the shop. Seymour and Audrey tell him that they think displaying something interesting, strange, and new in the window will attract business. Seymour brings up the perfect plant for the job: a mysterious, flytrap-esque plant he calls Audrey II. The plant immediately attracts business. After the store closes, the plant begins to wilt, and Mr. Mushnik orders Seymour to fix it.

That night, Seymour discovers what Audrey II eats; blood. Seymour feeds the plant his blood, and as a result, it gets bigger and bigger. When Seymour becomes unable to keep feeding it, the plant begins to talk and urges him to kill people and Seymour feeds Audrey’s sadistic dentist boyfriend to the plant and later, Mushnik for witnessing the death of Audrey’s ex feed them to him. Audrey II promises him rewards, and that he’ll bring him business, luxuries, everything he’s ever wanted, and Audrey.
