The Day of the Triffids (1963) AKA Invasion of the Triffids


After meteors enter Earth’s atmosphere, blinding much of the planet’s population in the process, plantlike creatures known as Triffids emerge from the craters and begin to take over. Military officer Bill Masen, one of the few sighted people left alive, meets with other survivors in England and tries to find a safe haven from the vicious vegetation, as scientist Tom Goodwin desperately seeks a way to defeat the leafy extraterrestrials.

This seems to be a public domain film so and so as usually happens with PD films you can find copies of this one EVERYWHERE, none of them look as good as this one tho, ripped from a Laserdisc and in the proper 2.35:1 AR. Many thanks to vataper @PTP for the rip. Enjoy!
