This review is from: Little Shop Of Horrors [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
'Little Shop of Horrors' is one of those movies (and musicals) that no-one seems to have heard of, and I was one of them until recently when my music teacher mentioned it to me. It really is hidden treasure coz it's hilarious. It's a musical but is outrageous and doesn't even attempt to be serious like soppy trash like Les Miserablés and Phantom of the Opera. You'll have the songs in your head for months. If your a fan of 70's trends like blues and soul (shoo wop, do woo!), you'll most probably enjoy this.
People say it has similarities to the disney films Beauty and the Beast, and the Little Mermaid because they were also written by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman. I don't think so though. Little Shop of Horrors is nothing like any of the Disney musical films.
