borrowed this script from the VHS box because it decribes the film better than i could... stay inside and lock the doors for the Day of the Triffids is coming!! for reasons unexplained by science,hundreds of metorites begin to fall to earth,and blind those who witness the phenomenon.the few who retain their sight are horrified to encounter dandelion like fluff known as triffids.these triffids multiply and grow into large man-eating plants that begin to march on civilzation,destroying everyone in their path,join 4 survivors of the terrifying onslaught as they search for a means of destroying all the menacing flesh eating plants. cast consists of Howard Keel,Nicole Murray,Janette Scott..directed by Steve Sekely.. truly a fun sc-fi/ horror film...i believe from england released in 1963-i first saw it at a saturday afternoon matinee when i was 12years old-it scared the hell outta me!!highly recommend to all sc-fi/horror fiends...too right!! I dont know if its available on DVD??
