    Default Frank Oz's Letter From The New Director's Cut Of Little Shop Of Horrors

    Inside my Blu-ray of Little Shop of Horrors was a letter from Frank Oz so, naturally, I decided to take a picture of it for you. Try not to read it in "one of his voices" if you can. And be wary of spoilers - it's about the end of the movie.



    The region-free Blu-ray is pretty cheap right now at $17.99. It's also a bloody well mastered disc and the director's cut ending is superb.

    Man, I was traumatized by this movie growing up, and I still find it freaky. Pre-CGI special effects could either be far less compelling, or far more so.

    I thought the original ending was included as an extra on a very early version of the LSoH DVD back in the late 1990s but Oz (or perhaps a producer) had it removed from later versions.

    It was, but it was in black and white. This new version has it fully restored in colors.

    The latter. Perhaps because it's rarely used thse days, but I now thoroughly enjoy seeing movies that utilize models and non-CGI effects.
    Those people were true wizards back in the day.

    Hey has anyone seen the Black and white version, ya know, with the young Jack Nicholson? Anyway they're both great. Looking back now the Musicals re-done ending was never as good as the first films, I guess coz it kinda ruined the mood or something.

    I've seen it! It's good, and has a darker tone than the musical for sure.
    The musical was great, but I never knew the ending was changed. Now I know what seemed off, and it was that forced happy ending.

    Steve Martin's dentist was and remains hilarious.

    Likewise, I wonder when they'll do a remake of this. Not that i want that to happen (at least in musical form) but at the rate Hollywood going i see it happening, though i wouldn't oppose a British remake
