Oddity
25 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is very strange in that it really is essentially a sexed up version of The Little Shop of Horrors complete with human-eating plant and full frontal sex.

Strange.

It's in color and the sets are very colorful.

The director apparently had a pedigree background and started a theatre group whose alum included the likes of Gene Hackman.

But on the side he mad a handful of these low budget horror films like this.

The plant starts small eating flies, graduates to frogs ("Come on frog me." it says in its sexy voice) and then dogs. You get the idea.

The movie is really an oddity. Not as good as TLSOH, due to the fact that the centerpiece is really sex, but it is watchable.

Everybody in the film is talking about sex in one way or another and there is a seemingly endless scene with some 70s porn queen and her husband doing it in a car. It goes on forever and is pointless except to throw in an example of how grooming was not important 40 years ago.

There is no explanation how the plant can see when there are no eyes, but I spouse considering everything else that happens in this film, that's a minor point!

In all, it's not a horrible movie, within this genre and if TLSOH hadn't been made beforehand, I would have given it a couple extra stars.
