"Little Shop of Horrors" is a fantastical black comedy. Seymour Krelbourn (played by Rick Moranis) is a loserly nerd working at a florist's shop. He is hopelessly in love with his beautiful coworker Audrey (played by Ellen Greene) who barely knows he exists. One day, his drab life takes a turn for the better when he discovers a unique plant which breathes new life into the shop and makes him famous. He soon learns the plant -- which talks and sings and has a larger than life personality -- has a taste for human blood. Because the plant has brought success to the skidrow shop, Seymour doesn't mind sparing a few drops of blood to keep his newfound fame and fortune. This starts him down a slippery slope. As the plant grows larger, so does its thirst for blood. Soon, it is trying to talk Seymour into committing murder in order to satisfy its grisly appetite. Initially, Seymour refuses. He changes his mind when he sees Audrey's sadistic boyfriend, Orin (played by Steve Martin), slapping her around. He goes to Orin's office to kill him, but cannot go through with the dirty deed. However, when Orin gets himself into a fix with some defective office equipment, Seymour stands idly by, witnessing the accidental death and doing nothing to stop it. He then chops the body up and feeds it to the plant. His boss sees this and infers that Seymour murdered him. Ultimately, the plant consumes the boss as well. After her boyfriend's disappearance, Audrey and Seymour get together. However, Seymour finds that with each passing day, he goes further down the rabbit hole with Audrey II (the plant). Topping it all off, it is eventually revealed that the plant is of unearthly origin and is plotting to take over the world. At this point, Seymour decides this must end and destroys the plant. Seymour and Audrey get married and move to an idyllic suburb.
