Obituary Profiles of Entertainment Industry Figures And The Legacies They Leave Behind


Low Budget Indie Pioneer Charles Griffith


Thursday, October 11------Charles Griffith, a screenwriter and director best known for writing the screenplay for the 1960 cult classic THE LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, died last week at the age of 77. Griffith made a name for himself in low-budget horror-comedy films, frequently collaborating with the producer/director Roger Corman, who also gave burgeoning filmmakers such as Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppolla, Dennis Hopper and others their first cracks at directing feature films.

Corman & GriffithCorman & GriffithTHE LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, both produced and directed by Roger Corman, is the satiric story of Seymour, a timid young man who works in a flower store, who unwittingly creates a carnivorous plant that feeds on human flesh. The film features a cameo by a young actor named Jack Nicholson, years before he became an international superstar. Though the film found little acclaim on its initial release, it developed a huge cult following and later inspired a highly successful 1982 Off Broadway musical.

A BUCKET OF BLOODA BUCKET OF BLOODGriffith, who was known for using dark humor in his scripts, wrote dozens of genre films for American International Pictures, Roger Corman's company, including such low-budget classics as A BUCKET OF BLOOD, THE WILD ANGELS , DR. HECKYL AND MR. HYPE and DEATH RACE 2000, which featured then-unknowns Sylvester Stallone and David Carradine. He also directed a handful of films, the best known being EAT MY DUST, which starred a young Ron Howard.
