The scene with them going all that way to find the curtain (blind?) pull setting off the signals..... !!!!
Q, have you read Day of the Triffids? It's one of my favourites and no one has really done it justice on the large or small screen.
Read it? I HAD it!
Yeah... how come they haven't made a remake of that.... that book, that movie... they scared the heck out of me as a kid.
Strange what you take for granted. My 23 yr old told me only a few weeks ago that she had only just read the book and booked the movie out. I naturally thought she had seen it years ago.
The group that do the Rocky HPS stage shows also show classic movies (1950 horror movies etc) every few weeks on the big screen. they are always booked out solid... and any excuse for a dress up huh? I mean how good is that... all those old movies as they were MEANT to be seen.. on the big screen! She has since DEMANDED that Christian show Day of the Triffids!
btw.... even as a KID I knew it was obvious that seawater was the killer!
