With all of today’s vegetarian and gluten-free hipsters, it’s nice to see the plants bite back once in a while. This screening of the 1986 horror-comedy musical shows what happens when the plants—named Audrey II, in this case— get tired of being the food and look to turn the tables on the humans. It’s the perfect combination of campiness, semi-violent fates, co-dependent relationships, catchy musical numbers and Rick Moranis humor, and there’s no better way to experience it than in an outdoor screening and picnic setting full of others screaming, “Feed me!” Technically, it’s the film version of the play based on the original 1960 movie, but there’s little doubt that the Frank Oz movie is the best take on Little Shop of Horrors in existence.
