  • Day Of The Triffids

    No-one knows quite how the triffids came about - an experiment in cross-pollination, perhaps - but they were a worthwhile, if peculiar-looking plant, that could walk after a fashion and which were valued for the quality of their oil. As long as their stings were docked, all was well. Then came the spectacular  meteor shower watched by most of mankind, all of whom awoke the following day to blindness.  And that's when the triffids became lively - escaping their farms and enclosures, seeding, and regrowing their deadly stings...the battle for Earth and the survival of Man has commenced.
