Episode 93. Little Shop of Remakes

Our Patrons voted recently on what film remake they’d like to hear more about so Alex and Jonathan get into the weird world of Roger Corman’s sci-fi classic The Little Shop of Horrors (1960) and Frank Oz’s musical remake Little Shop of Horrors (1986). We talk about the way Roger Corman mixes comedy and horror to create a successful b-movie, how a story changes with the addition of music, and how adaptation can breathe new life into otherwise forgotten media.
