"Little Shop of Horrors" turns 25 this year - so where's the blu-ray? Warner Bros loves their anniversary dates and 25 is a big one. So where is this cult favorite?
And what about the original ending that was re-filmed? "Little Shop" was to open in the summer of 86, but preview audiences thought the ending was a downer so the cast was called back to shoot an upbeat and shorter ending. Most of the film's 25 Million dollar budget was spent on the original ending's special effects - yet David Geffen hasn't allowed the public to view this ending.
The 1st DVD had part of the original ending - in black and white - but that disc was recalled right after it was released and went for big bucks on ebay
On blu-ray a short film like "Little Shop" could easily give the viewer the option of watching the original or theatrical ending - so WB what are you waiting for 2012?
WB just announced "Three Amigos" not as popular but also turning 25, so "Little Shop" seems like an obvious release - perfect timing
