Blu-ray release of Frank Oz's Little Shop of Horrors reveals an epic alternate ending

It's been a while since I've seen Frank Oz's adaptation of LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, starring Rick Moranis, Bill Murray, Ellen Green, Steve Martin, John Candy, James Belushi, and Levi Stubbs.  As a kid I used to watch it frequently, mostly because it was both hilarious and scary at the same time.  A very unique combination.  Now, the film is getting the blu-ray treatment, which hits shelves tomorrow, and it includes a very epic alternate 20-minute ending with the infamous Audrey II taking over the world.  It reminds me a lot of the alternate ending to James Cameron's THE ABYSS, which was far more mythic than what we saw in theaters. 

Check it out (via EW):

The blu-ray release includes:

  • Theatrical version of the film with optional commentary
  • The Director’s Cut featuring the newly restored 20-minute alternate ending
  • Digitally re-mastered picture and 5.1 sound on both versions
  • Commentary by director Frank Oz
  • Frank Oz and Little Shop of Horrors: The Director's Cut introduction
  • A Story of Little Shop of Horrors behind-the-scenes featurette
  • Outtakes
  • Deleted scenes
  • Theatrical trailers

If you've never seen the flick, I highly recommend checking it out.  It doesn't matter if you're into musicals or not, this is primo stuff, with great performances across the board in a darkly comic tale that's a blast to watch unfold.  Click here to preorder from Amazon. 

LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS starts feeding you tomorrow, October 9, 2012.
