so, BRUCE CAMPBELL'S going to play The Genetic Engineer who designs The Triffids?

(Sam Raimi's DRAG ME TO HELL was terrible for because BRUCE CAMPBELL wasn't in it).

A Sam Raimi movie isn't a Sam Raimi Movie if Bruce Campbell isn't in it.

John Wyndham wrote Day of the Triffids and "it says" that John Wyndham is a pen-name for "John Wyndham Parkes Lucas Beynon Harris" . . . the six names sound like they are pen-names and John Wyndham sounds like the real name.

--

anyway: SALT WATER KILLS TRIFFIDS!!!!!!!!
(I gave away the ending) . . . only it sounds like i didn't.

its like saying:

SOYLENT GREEN IS PEOPLE!!!!!!

You give away the ending but ITS not really "The Ending" you're giving away.

here's another:

ROSEMARY'S BABY is . . . ADRIAN MERCADO.

saying endings like the above doesn't really spoil the movie.
