This set contains two cult classics by Roger Corman. Both films feature early performances by Jack Nicholson.
THE CRY BABY KILLER: This Roger Corman classic features Jack Nicholson in his first film role. Nicholson plays Jimmy Wallace, a 17-year-old who only knows how to solve his problems with violence. When a fight erupts over a girl, Jimmy pulls a gun in an attempt to kill one of his opponents. But somehow three hostages get involved, and Jimmy finds himself in the middle of a deadly mess.
THE LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS: Corman shot this crazy beat-era classic in a mere two days, but it packs plenty of inspired lunacy and clever bits in its 70-minute running time. Jonathan Haze stars as clumsy assistant florist Seymour, who saves his job in Mr. Mushnik's skid-row flower shop when he brings in a unique man-eating plant. The problem is, it's a very hungry plant; every night it opens its huge jaws and demands to be fed, forcing poor Seymour to take to the street in search of victims, lest he disappoint his boss and his adoring girlfriend, Audrey (Jackie Joseph). From a zingy script by Charles Griffith, this hilarious black comedy overflows with great ideas and characters.
