I have the words to Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” echoing in my head, in particular the part right before they go into the “mama mia” part, right after the “let me go” part. The “No! No! No! No! No! No! No!” part is what I’m speaking of. Why oh why of why would Warner Brothers be considering remaking LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS?! No remake could possibly be as good as the 80s film. Granted, it was itself a remake of the 1960 black and white cheeseball classic from Roger Corman (boasting the first onscreen appearance of Jack Nicholson) and was really a remake of a remake since it was based on the Broadway musical, but when you have achieved perfection, you need to stop trying to outdo yourself.
The only way I’d be onboard with this is if they scrapped the musical part altogether and went back to the original formula. They could make a genuine Horror movie—giant killer plants CAN be scary, as the recent THE RUINS proved, or even going back to THE DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS—or they could do a complete satire, keeping tongues in cheeks, and render something as potentially fantastic as ARMY OF DARKNESS—but only if they cast Bruce Campbell in the role of the psycho dentist. Does anyone know if Bruce can sing?
