Roger Corman directed the 1960 film version of The Little Shop of Horrors. The high-camp, low-budget comedy became a cult classic and spawned the rock musical by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken. (The two men worked on Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid.) Horrors follows the unexpected adventures of Seymour, a shy flower-shop clerk who falls in love with the beautiful Audrey. Unexceptional in every way, Seymour becomes suddenly popular when he discovers a special plant, a plant that just happens to be carnivorous.
