Roger Corman's Cult Classics: Jack Nicholson
The Little Shop of Horrors
Classic black comedy about a young schnook who develops a blood-thirsty plant and is to kill in order to feed it. A macabre B film masterpiece with a snide satirical take on Dragnet's Sergeant Joe Friday. One of Jack Nicholson's first performances! The film was also the basis for the later hit stage musical.
A young officer in Napoleon's army pursues a mysterious woman to the castle of an elderly Baron where he discovers that she is the pawn of an old witch bent on driving the Baron to suicide. A prowl through a creepy castle with incidental pleasures, most notable Boris Karloff's commanding performance and a young Jack Nicholson as the officer.
Directed by Francis Ford Coppola and produced by Roger Corman - this film is a true cult classic...a nastily effective macabre film. An axe murderer attacks members of a noble Irish family at their lonely castle.
