A sci-fi thriller (1963) that sticks in the mind, thanks to deft pacing and a vividly paranoid premise.
Although riddled with script inconsistencies and irregularities, it is a more-than-adequate film of its genre.
Sometimes unintentionally funny, and it could have done without the customary moralising.
Unfaithful adaptation from the acclaimed 1951 science fiction novel by John Wyndham.
Decidedly short on awe-inspiring moments.
The plants are marchin'! Hero Keel then overwaters them.
Good, but hardly great sci-fi.
If the script is a little uneven and even ludicrous at times, The Day of the Triffids is wonderfully apocalyptic sci-fi.
Clever sci-fi gem.
Terror comes to full bloom in a sci-fi classic
Attack of the Space Vegetables!
Although greatly ballyhooed the work is finally only a so-so effort, plants from space reminding us to certainly always finish yer salad. In the meantime I got the feeling that Howard Keel was the only Hollywood that could be got ... and that they shoulda passed on him and picked some local talent, as lifeless a performance as ever seen given. What's he doing in a sci-fi anyway?
Here is a work dying, crying, to be repackaged, re-done.
I wasn't able to see the whole movie, but someone told me this was a great movie, so I watched some of it and I wasn't impressed, but may be I should see the whole movie sometime?
well intentioned with a decent cast, this movie is a snoozefest...simply drags and what action there is consists of plant-like creatures inching along a mostly blind population. For insomniacs, suggested viewing is fifteen minutes twice nightly..
28 Days Later borrows heavily from the structure of this...only instead of zombies...their man eating plants...sweet
