The Bare Bones: In this Horror Comedy musical, an alien plant makes a deal with an unsuspecting florist, offering wealth and fame in exchange for food, but the plant's diet is all too sinister.
It's the 80's. The Monster is an enormous Plant consisting of multiple, highly detailed puppets, which I think is really cool. The backdrops are funny, and manage to be engaging without taking any attention away from the Actors and what they're doing. The use of Backdrops and obvious sets also serves to offer a nods to the theatrical production off which this film is based.
