Little Shop of Horrors

Unspooled #301.5 December 8, 2021

Paul & Amy feed 1986’s creature feature musical Little Shop of Horrors! They credit director Frank Oz for getting Audrey II’s physicality just right, dive into the career of Four Tops singer Levi Stubbs, and debate whether the heightened tone of the film feels more theatrical or more cinematic. Plus: A young Jack Nicholson’s astonishing cameo in the original Little Shop.


Next week Unspooled shakes out its first holiday stocking stuffer, Love Actually!
