About the movie: The film is a 1960 American black comedy film that takes place on Skid Row in Los Angeles. Written by Charles B. Griffith, the film is a farce about an inadequate florist’s assistant who cultivates a plant that feeds on human flesh and blood. The film’s concept is thought to be based on a 1932 story called “Green Thoughts”, by John Collier, about a man-eating plant. However, Dennis McDougal suggests that Griffith may have been influenced by Arthur C. Clarke‘s sci-fi short story from 1956, “The Reluctant Orchid” (which was in turn inspired by the 1905 H. G. Wells story “The Flowering of the Strange Orchid”).
