The Day of the Triffids

The Day of the Triffids

It’s an interesting concept, but I’m not 100% sure the story held up throughout. I would be more intrigued to find out how the world continued with everyone blind - how did they survive, how did they go about bringing up the non-blind youngsters? How did the people get off the lighthouse island to send word about the sea water? Anyway, good but not great.

I have definitely seen this one before, perhaps at the request of Mr C, but I think it might have been late at night and I probably wasn’t paying attention. I recall it as the one where they pretended to be dead which is factually incorrect. I like the idea of this film, and the story is good, but my god it is hard work. All that smoke, and blue/red lighting, it gets a bit trying. Still, some of the lines are funny, and the characters are good. I’m not sure I would recommend this onwards, but I don’t want my two hours back.
