Synopsis

#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – A shower of meteorites produces a glow that blinds anyone that looks at it. As it was such a beautiful sight, most people were watching, and as a consequence, 99% of the population go blind. In the original novel, this chaos results in the escape of some Triffids: experimental plants that are capable of moving themselves around and attacking people. In the film version, however, the Triffids are not experimental plants. Instead they are space aliens whose spores have arrived in an earlier meteor shower.
Plot: After an unusual meteor shower leaves most of the human population blind, a merchant navy officer must find a way to conquer tall, aggressive plants which are feeding on people and animals.

Reviews:

This was solid and surprisingly very effective at getting across both the dread and horrific atmosphere of such a predicament–and would make a very good double bill with Kaufman’s (70’s) ‘Invasion of the Body Snatchers’. I love my veggies, but I’ll never look at a salad the same way again…

_**Attack of the Plant Monsters**_

After a curious meteor shower creates havoc on Earth, a merchant navy officer (Howard Keel) in England is forced to contend with mobile vegetation-based creatures; meanwhile on an island off of Cornwall a troubled scientist couple working at a lighthouse try to solve the problem (Janette Scott & Kieron Moore).

“The Day of the Triffids” (1963) is a British creature feature that borrows from “War of the Worlds” of ten years prior (particularly the ending), but it’s not in the same league. While the creators did their best to create scary-looking plant monsters, they’re just not as formidable as the Martian threat in that other movie. It doesn’t help that the females are depicted as dainty, useless screamers (I realize it’s a sign of the times but, c’mon, they could do more than stand idly by screaming).

Still, if you like 50s-60’s Brit horror, like “Island of Terror” (1966) and “Night of the Big Heat” (1967), you’ll probably appreciate it (it’s on par with the former, but not as good as the latter); just don’t expect Peter Cushing or Christopher Lee.

The movie runs 1 hour, 33 minutes and was shot at Shepperton Studios, just west of London, as well as locations in London and Spain.

Realistic, Atmospheric and Memorable Adaptation of John Wyndham’s Novel
This is a well-told film that lacks post-1994 incredible special effects expenditures and massive overspending. What it has is a very solid story line, a number of memorable scenes and a feel of realism about it that adds a great deal I suggest to its eerie sci-fi atmosphere. Its central character, Bill, a career seaman played expertly by Howard Keel, is a man facing an nightmare. The film begins in a small typical and beautifully-presented small London hospital where he has to wait one more day before removing bandages to ensure that his vision will return to normal. Banter with a lovely nurse and his doctor turn into a prescient strangeness the next morning–when Keel awakes to find the hospital abandoned, all floors silent amid signs of damage and swift departure…Telephones are not working either. He removes his bandages to find a world without people. We learn, through his adventures and those of a couple in an isolated lighthouse off the coast, where the husband does scientific experiments and drinks too much, that a shower of meteors watched by billions, have destroyed their optic nerves and thus rendered nearly everyone blind. We soon learn that this is a worldwide phenomenon. In addition, a species of plants called triffids have developed from being small insect eating plants into towering and motile monstrosities that can sting and paralyze then absorb human beings as food. They spray small spores to propagate, are reproducing in millions and thus threaten all remaining human life. Keel picks up a young girl who can also see; and after escaping a crowd of the desperate in London and witnessing an attempt at an airliner landing turning into a massive explosion, they escapes from the city. Thereafter, their adventures deal with the plants’ attacks, attempts to reach the continent and a rendezvous in Paris and then one in Spain; but the bulk of the film involves the couples’ lonely battle with the triffids on their isolated island, and Keel’s final escape from a doomed French haven with Nicole Maurey and the young girls as they make for a submarine pickup, the last scheduled for Europe’s remaining sighted persons. The great task that everyone faces during the film is striving against all odds to find some way of defeating the plants as well simply escaping. The piece’s screenplay by veteran Philip Yordan, adapted from a good John Wyndham novel, I find to be rather satisfying. Steve Sekely directed in swift-paced and intelligent style. The competent cast besides Keel, a most underrated leading man, include strong Kieron More and Janette Scott as the couple in the lighthouse, Mervyn Johns, Alison Leggatt, Geoffrey Mathews, Ewan Roberts, Janina Faye as the young girl picked up by Keel, Gilgi Hauser, pretty Carol Ann Ford, Colette Wild as the lovely nurse and Victor Brooks, among others. This estimable film was produced by Yordan, with George Pitcher as line producer assisted by Bernard Glasser. Rod Goodwin’s musical score is powerful and well-above-average at all points. the cinematography by Ted Moore and Cedric Dawe’s gritty art direction are also noteworthy. The film looks back I suggest to previous 1950s color sci-fi efforts; but its plants also became the model for the Star Trek “This Side of Paradise” spore-producing vegetation.. And its generally serious feel was copied many times thereafter, both the lighthouse sequence and the cross-country adventures of keep and his companions. But these achievements have seldom been approached let alone bettered. Anyone viewing the film today I assert should respond to its unusual realism; complaints about a lack of multi-million dollar graphics are undoubtedly more than misplaced. The storyline was a difficult one to capture in a brief film even in the 1960s. I suggest that the makers have done this exacting task rather admirably. Scenes such as the surrounding of an electrified yard by the carnivorous plants, the airliner’s approach and crash, and the escape of Keel, Faye and Maurey from her house when it is taken over by convicts deserve critical acclaim. I judge this effort to be one of the most underrated of sci-fi films of all time.

Half awful, half brilliant…but a total B-classic!
Day of the Triffids is a unique movie-experience and it became one of my personal favorites right from the first viewing. This film actually is a cinematic mystery to itself since you can’t figure out how to rate it: trash or terrific? Watching the Day of the Triffids is like seeing two movies rolling into one. It’s a compelling and unsettling apocalyptic disaster-movie but as soon as the killer vegetables kick in, it more looks like an amateur Edward Wood science fiction mess. Or in other words: for as long as no special effects budget is required, the film offers story-driven eeriness. I’m particularly amazed by the amount of ingeniousness this film features! The plot is based on a novel by John Wyndham and tells the story of a disastrous meteor shower spectacle, of which the intensity blinds the entire world population. The few people who missed this event (like protagonist Howard Keel who was in the hospital for an eye-operation) are the only ones who still have hope to survive, since giant man-eating plants (called Triffids) grow from the meteor craters and feed on the helpless blind humans.

The boisterous lightshow indicating us a meteor shower is happening is cheerfully cheap and becomes unintentionally hilarious. But and that’s what so impressive the sequences that follow this unearthly event are some of the best scenes of mass-hysteria ever shot on film! People at London station who suddenly turn blind and cause incidents and mayhem. There even is downright fantastic sequence showing the hysteria in an about-to-crash airplane because the pilot suddenly lost his eyesight. These sequences are what makes ‘Day of the Triffids’ so unique! As the story continues, a small group of surviving heroes tries to flee to Spain chased by the ugly Triffids trying to eat them. Yet another courageous couple is stuck in a lighthouse, annihilating Triffids and saving their watered marriage at the same time! You can’t get passed the weirdness of this film, every time it tends to get exaggeratedly cheesy; a new ingenious twist is added. Result: a fascinating film from start to finish! I pity my few fellow reviewers here who can’t seem to look beyond the poor production values and therefore totally miss the uniqueness of the entire finished product. True, the giant plants are awful and the noises they make resemble to those of a broken vacuum cleaner. And yes, the acting is a bit embarrassing at times and the dialogue isn’t exactly top-notch. But always keep in mind you won’t ever see such an incredible amount of creativity and amusement in nowadays cinema. Highly recommended!
