Little Shop of Horrors (1986) Video Ad
1986 Film Home Media is a list of the home video releases of the movie musical.

Most releases around the world feature the film's A Poster art, though Japan had their own variation, and an early, unusual Australian cover seemed to mirror the final scene of the Director's Cut, which was not issued anywhere until 2012. Video releases in the USA and Canada are generally impossible to differentiate.

Generally speaking, the releases around the world prior to 2012 have identical special features: Frank Oz's commentary, an isolated music track, a gag reel, the documentary A Story of Little Shop of Horrors, trailers, TV spots and various audio and subtitle options. The original "Special Edition" in the USA also included the black-and-white workprint ending.

The Director's Cut DVDs feature a new intro by Oz, and a separate color copy of the ending with Frank Oz's 1998 commentary for the black-and-white version.

The discs that include both versions have most of the same special features from the DVDs (Frank Oz commentary, a Gag Reel, the documentary A Story of Little Shop of Horrors, trailers), but they're missing the isolated music track and TV spots. New features include a Frank Oz intro and a color copy of the Director's Cut ending with Oz's commentary from the 1998 release of the workprint.
