  • Day Of the Triffids really scares you...

    The Day Of The Triffids is the story of the human race blinded by a mysterious metor shower in the sky. Everyone is blinded, except very few people. Bill Mansen and his girlfreind Jo are not blinded, but they can see the world it is turning into.Man eating plants called Triffids were created by the Russians, but the Triffids over took them and populate alot of the world, but are kept locked up in Triffid farms. But with the world in dispare,Triffids are escaping and feasting on the blind humans who are like sitting ducks. A mysterious Disease is wide spread killing the blinded, thats if they are not killed by Triffids. London is falling to pieces, and the human conflict still reigns with street gangs and millitary personel. Its a very dark tales of human reaction to the devastating situation, although the Triffids are kept in the background for most of the story, it can still give you chills down the spine.
