The Day of the Triffids Photos

Movie Info

After meteors enter Earth's atmosphere, blinding much of the planet's population in the process, plantlike creatures known as Triffids emerge from the craters and begin to take over. Military officer Bill Masen (Howard Keel), one of the few sighted people left alive, meets with other survivors in England and tries to find a safe haven from the vicious vegetation, as scientist Tom Goodwin (Kieron Moore) desperately seeks a way to defeat the leafy extraterrestrials.

Audience Reviews for The Day of the Triffids

    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
