Little Shop of Horrors

Little Shop of Horrors (1986)

2 factual errors

Factual error: When Steve Martin dies with the mask on, the inflation bulbs (the little black bags that inflate and deflate) deflate completely. Actually they should INFLATE completely and stay that way. The gas is still on full blast and Steve is no longer inhaling (which would cause them to deflate). It was done only to emphasize Steve Martin's demise but it's factually incorrect.

Factual error: The movie was released in 1986 and is set in "an early year of a decade, not too long before our own." And yet, in the song "Mean Green Mother From Outer Space, " Audrey II sings "you can keep The Thing, keep the IT, keep The Creature, they don't mean shit!" Stephen King's book titled IT was released in 1986.

Suggested correction: The book IT was released three months before this movie. Obviously, they were not referencing a book that didn't even exist when the movie was being shot. The fifties saw the release of It Came From Outer Space (1953), It Came From Beneath the Sea (1955), and It Conquered the World (1956). There was even a movie called It! from 1967. The song could be referencing any of these.
