Warner Home Video has just announced a Blu-Ray Disc version of Frank Oz‘s beloved remake of Little Shop Of Horrors, bringing the movie to high definition in October.
In this cult classic, nerdish florist Seymour (Rick Moranis) finds his chance for success and romance with the help of a giant man-eating plant who demands to be fed.
The release will feature a 1080p high definition transfer of the movie and accompany it with a newly remastered Dolby 5.1 TrueHD audio track.
Here‘s the best part, though, as this release will include the highly anticipate 20-minute alternate ending, fully restored and in color for the first time. The footage of this original ending was previously available only in black & white in the extra content of a limited number of copies of a DVD edition released in 1998. Now, with the help of production notes from Frank Oz and others on the film‘s creative team, Warner Home Video has meticulously restored and digitally remastered the ending, in full color, with the elaborate special effects in tact.
But there‘s a lot more, as “Little Shop of Horrors: The Director‘s Cut” arrives as a commemorative Blu-Ray Book, loaded with extras, including a Commentary Track by director Frank Oz, an Introduction by Oz with Richard Conway, Outtakes, Deleted Scenes, and a Behind-the-scenes Documentary.
“Little Shop of Horrors: The Director‘s Cut” will be in stores around the country on October 9 for $34.99.
