Friday Flashback: Day of the Triffids

All plants move, says the scientist in this movie, but they don’t usually pull themselves out by their roots and chase you. Day of the Triffids from 1962 is a science fiction classic that has much in common with the original short story and recent stage version of The Birds. (The Hitchcock thriller went a different route.) Even if the titular plants look like giant asparagus heads, they still scare the hell out of some people to this day.
