    Alien plants take over the world! slowly at first, just cropping up in gardens and in warm climes... we find a way to tap oil from them and we start putting them in farms which are similar to concentration camps, from the few shots we see... a farmer who was working the fields has venom from the plants sprays in his face which temporally blinds him... Through is monologue as he heals in a hospital bed, we gain the back story...but something is wrong, no one has came to give him breakfast or check on his progress in quite a while... and then he notices how quiet things are... he removes the bandages, but its not the world it was when he was admitted... the Triffids have taken over!

    This aspect reminds me of the begining of the cult movie "28 Days Later".moreless
