It's a black comedy involving a young clumsy flower store employee -Seymour Krelboyne- who creates a carnivorous plant that becomes soon bloodthirsty. At first, his boss, Gravis Mushnik, unaware of the needs of the green creature, makes money by exposing this vegetal creation in his store but he soon will discover the awful truth.

A cult classic.
