Synopsis: "The most terrifying period in the history of my beat began in a little run-down florist shop called Muchnick's," relates Sgt. Fink in the opening of Roger Corman's 1960 black comedy.
Seymour Krelboin works at Mushnick's flower shop on Skid Row. To avoid the unemployment line, Seymour offers his boss a "special" hybrid plant he's been growing at home. When Seymour pricks his finger and the plant tastes blood, he learns the secret to its growth: human flesh. With each victim Seymour supplies, "Audrey Jr." (named after Seymour's girlfriend) grows, and so does its appetite...begging for Seymour to "feed me! Feeeed me!!"
