Please Don't Eat My Mother
Customers who bought this item also bought
Pretty young ladies make the perfect plant food. Henry Fudd, an overage mama's boy and part time peeping tom, is the proud owner of two very peculiar plants he keeps locked in his bedroom. Named Adam and Eve and looking like overgrown Venus Flytraps with giant mouths filled with razor sharp teeth, the plants not only talk, but eat humans--especially the sexy centerfold kind. Definitely not for the kiddies, "Please Don't Eat My Mother!" also features legendary sex kitten Rene Bond as one of the plant's more delectable meals.

Henry, our protagonist, now has two joys in life. One is being a voyeur (he is much too shy to actual talk to a girl) and the other is his new plant friend. Soon he discovers the plant likes bugs (and then frogs and dogs and cats but he draws the line at elephants). Eventually the plant wants to try a delicious woman, like in the pictures Henry has hanging in his room.
One day Henry's mother breaks into his room thinking to confront him with a woman and all she can find are Henry and the plant. But soon the plant eats her and discovers that woman are really tasty. When detective O'Columbus shows up, the plant discovers she does not like eating men, just women.
Eventually the plant experiences urges and Henry finds a male specimen. The male eats men while the female eats women. One woman is willing to end Henry's life of virginity but accidently gets eaten. Henry is broken and tries to kill himself while the plants get passionate with one another. Henry is to clumsy to succeed and changes his mind when he sees all of the little baby plants.
Some aspects of this movie are a direct spoof of Roger Corman's Little Shop of Horrors while others seem to have been spoofed by the musical remake.
But spoof aside, this is a fun and titillating film. Henry is excellent in his role and has facial expressions to rival the best silent-film star. The main plot is peppered with scenes of couples having sex with some graphic full-frontal shots although no pornography.
A funny and titillating film for fans of spoofs, comedies and sexpoitation.
The DVD is put together with great care and affection. The source print for PLEASE DON'T EAT MY MOTHER is incredibly fine, considering its age and the quality of the production. In a section called "Super Sleazy Extras" there are trailers for the film and several other Novak productions, a couple of short features (one called "The Voyeur," designed as a spin-off of the main feature), and a very amusing commentary track with Novak and Mike Vraney of Something Weird Video. Listening to Novak talk about his movies, his philosophy of film making, distribution and promotion, and the various people he's known over the years is a real pleasure.
For mindless, "tantillating" (Novak's word) entertainment, look no further than PLEASE DON'T EAT MY MOTHER.
Also, I'm not crazy about Keep Cases, since they damage too easily, but that's just a quibble. Considering the fact that this Novac restoration did not include a second feature, as most of the Boxoffice International/SWV restorations have, I expected better extras. They could have included more trailers, for example. The SWV Raids Harry Novac's Film Vaults is an interesting piece of filler that will only appeal to hardcore fans. Thumbs up for using the original poster art on the cover, rather than the lame tripe used on most DVD covers that try to employ modern style art with photos of cast members.
Aside from those notations, I'm still happy with the purchase. A great period piece that belongs in every library of collectors of Novac, Meyer, and their ilk.
