Monster of the Day #303

“Bonsai tree, my ass!”

    “My, what thin leaves on your trunk”
    Triffids just loooove to fondle.

    “How dooooo you do it? I haven’t been able to find ANYTHING to fix MY split ends.”

  • John Campbell

    Wow! For once I knew what this was!

    Movie scared the bejesus’ out of me as a kid.

    I remember being cautious around large plants for awhile.

    Ahhh those were wonderfully imaginative times.

    And I really got hot when I saw Janette Scott
    Fight a triffid that spits poison and kills.

    Well, actually, it was Kieron Moore who did most of the fighting. Um… with a firehose.

    BTW, years later I heard somebody claim that 28 Days Later ripped this movie off, since both are post-apocalyptic movies set in London involving a hero, a heroine, and a little girl (all not related), and both films feature one sequence where slobbering, woman-pawing, would-be soldiers stage a losing battle in an abandoned mansion against an onslaught of monsters.

    Myself, I call it a coincidence. Which does happen, by the way. I also don’t buy into the argument that Evil Dead was a ripoff of the movie Equinox. You hear that a lot, too.

  • Rock Baker

    I’d say there are enough similarities in both cases that you could make a decent argument, even if the copying isn’t concious.
