Director: Frank Oz

94 minutes, U.S.A., 1986, Colour, 70mm

October’s 70mm presentation is Frank Oz’s adaptation of the off-Broadway musical that was itself inspired by Roger Corman’s 1960 film, starring Jack Nicholson. In Oz’s version, Rick Moranis is the Skid Row florist’s assistant who discovers an unusual plant that he names after his colleague Audrey (Ellen Greene), with whom he is secretly in love. But Audrey II (voiced with gleeful malevolence by Levi Stubbs, singer with Motown legends The Four Tops) needs blood to grow, and as it grows, so does its appetite. Filled with catchy numbers, it’s a hugely entertaining film, featuring cameos from John Candy, Bill Murray, and Steve Martin. (Notes by Kevin Coyne.)
