News & Interviews for The Day of the Triffids
Critic Reviews for The Day of the Triffids
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.
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?
28 Days Later borrows heavily from the structure of this...only instead of zombies...their man eating plants...sweet
