Meek flower shop assistant Seymour Krelbourn pines for his co-worker, Audrey. During a total eclipse, he discovers an unusual plant he names Audrey II, which feeds only on human flesh and blood. Mr. Mushnick, the flower shop owner, is pleased that the growing plant attracts a great deal of business for his previously struggling store. As the plant grows daily Seymour must continue to feed AudreyII. After dentist Orin Scrivello, Audrey's violent boyfriend, dies accidentally, Seymour feeds him to the plant. Seymour soon realizes he must come up with more bodies for the ever-growing bloodthirsty plant.
