It was famously filmed in under 48 hours, using pre-existing sets that were built for a different film. The other thing the film is famous for is a small role by the then-unknown Creator/JackNicholson as masochistic dental patient Wilbur Force, who consequently tends to get [[BillingDisplacement top billing]] whenever the film is [[RetroactiveRecognition released on home video]].

* DownerEnding[=/=]EsotericHappyEnding: The finale of the movie: [[spoiler: Seymour gets so upset with Audrey Jr. that he tries to kill it, only to end up being eaten by it. On the other hand, due to the framing device of the film being that it's the recollection of a cop who got involved with the case, it's pretty obvious Audrey Jr. got destroyed afterwards (in contrast to the [[Theatre/LittleShopOfHorrors later theatrical version]], where Audrey IIs kill off humanity) and, hey, Seymour ''was'' a murderer, so it's kind of a KarmicDeath.]]

Although the movie wasn't a ''major'' hit by any stretch of the imagination, it was profitable and developed a cult following via drive-in and television screenings, eventually leading to [[Theatre/LittleShopOfHorrors a successful stage musical]] adapted by Howard Ashman and Music/AlanMenken. The musical streamlines the plot, ditching a lot of incidental characters and giving it a proper dramatic arc. It scores about a 2 on the SlidingScaleOfAdaptationModification. The film and/or musical also probably served as partial inspiration for the plant in Creator/StephenKing's ''The Plant''. Probably the biggest impact this movie had on pop culture? The Piranha Plants in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros''.
