Fascinating bad sex horror comedy
29 June 1999 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

From what I've read about this movie I was expecting a softcore version of Corman's "Little Shop Of Horrors". Instead I've got a retarded almost hardcore horror comedy which has none of the wit or plot of Corman's classic. Yes, there's a maneating plant (with a sexy female voice) and a lonely geek/voyeur, Buck Kartalian, who kinda looks like Mel Brooks' goofy twinbrother! I'm huge sleazefan but 2/3 of "Please Don't.." is one sex scene after another (the last one incl. XXX-veteran Rene Bond). The plant DO get to eat, first frogs & dogs then humans. Well, It IS kinda fascinating to see Buck - who acted with Heston, Eastwood & Elvis! - in this Harry ("Sinful Dwarf", "Wham Bam Thank You Spaceman!" etc.) Novak produced mess, you wonder which kind of audience would go for this. The monsterplant is ultracheaply made but funny in a braindrainin' sort of way. The end is pretty neat, though. Check out this Something Weird Video release at your own risk!
