Hump Day Classic Movie:The Day of the Triffids (1962)

Yes, I know it's Thursday. Wednesday just got away from me.

Today's belated Hump Day movie is The Day if the Triffids. That's right, glory in the artistic brilliance of murderous trees (alien plants...whatever).

Based on a sci-fi novel of the same name, this was one of those movies featured at the drive-in. And scared the bejeezus out of my mom when she was about 10 or 11. Apparently, she and her brothers had to walk past a wooded area on their way home from the movie. And their overactive imaginations got the better of them.

From a modern horror perspective, this is prime so-bad-it's-funny material. Enjoy! You can watch the trailer on Youtube here.

Oh! And I found a 2009 British version starring Dougray Scott! Yea for more evil plant things!
