Just brilliant - the British do this this genre so well.
NOT WORTH THE WAIT ITS NOT THE SORT OF MOVIE I WOULD RECCOMEND
liked the original but this one was a bit slow for me and not much action .
Captures the suspense and terror of the book very well but could have been better.
Brilliant series. Still delivering chills after all these years. Sure, the effects are dated now, but the very real fear of society falling over certainly isn't.
Brought back memories of Dr Who episodes of the 70's. A good interpretation of the book. BBC always do a good mini series.
I really enjoyed this series- the special effects are dated but the story and the acting has stood the test of time.
excellent mini series very closely based on the book
The British tv series of Day of the Triffids is very faithful to the original story, i had to read this story when i was at school 40 plus years ago.. and i seen this series on tv in the 80's..its still spooky, a very good Sci-Fi story
Harmless fun. A good series, predictable and very dated, but nontheless worth kicking back with a few drinks for a nostalgic look. I enjoyed it. Not filled with mindless sex and violence, and even half way decent acting (though not Academy Award). good for a rainy day.
really dated now - especially the Triffids themselves, but a pretty good adaption of the story. Wyndham fans may appreciate it.
Not the seminal version that fans of John Wyndham's novel would be expecting. Very low budget and too little emphais on the triffids, but okay.
If you like the old series of Dr WHO then you'll enjoy this. For its day, a well acted and told story about survival of the fittest.
It's a pitty it ends rather abruptly. Acting is very basic and production low budget but overall very enjoyable from a sciece fiction point of view
For its era triffids was i believe ground breaking just watching it again (as I saw it when I was only Twelve)was entertaining as the first.
Fantastic plot but the actually movie being cut into chapters is very annoying. You get to view the credits 6 times over (just in case you missed them in the first instance). Fortunately I have a fast forward button. But I was still entranced just as much as I was the first time I saw this movie way back yonder.
Looking dated, but still a good yarn.
Very Very big venus flytraps but with humans as their prey, classic sci-fi horror with a fantastic storyline and genuine chills. Fantastic.
Still fabulously creepy after all these years!
