Day of the Triffids (1991)
With most of the world blinded, the dangerous, walking, carnivorous Triffids escape confinements and spread chaos. The remaining blind are helpless and many fall prey to the Triffids’ lethal whipping sting, but can the plucky band of sighted survivors keep this fearful plant at bay? (Note: Very long run time at 2hrs. 37 min.)
