When flower shop worker Seymour (Jonathan Haze) cuts his finger, the blood vitalizes his bloodthirsty Venus flytrap-like plant. Seymour becomes a slave to the plant and must perform murders to supply the needed blood while the plant brings business into the flower shop. Grossly funny and cheap, but it is lots of fun. Highlight: pain-loving Wilbur Force (Jack Nicholson) goes to the dentist.
