Killdozer, 1974

A memorable "Movie of the Week", but kind of a poor man's "Duel"

Anybody seen this? Any good?   

           From an earlier post of mine:


The Day of the Triffids, 1981 - Most of humanity is stricken blind by viewing the near approach of a spectacular comet.  A few are spared, only to be hunted by walking, carnivorous plants

John Duttine, Emma Ralph, Maurice Colbourne, Stephen Yardley and Gary Olsen.


This BBC TV 6-part, half hour serial more closely follows the book by including an environmental angle - a sub-plot that is blown way up, distractingly so, in the 2-Part TV re-make of 2009.


Of all the incarnations, I think I like the original book best, one of the 3 BBC radio serials (I canít remember which - maybe the 1957 one), then this 6-episode TV presentation next, then the theatrical movie and the 2009 re-telling the least..

Mike. I had The Day of the Triffids on VHS. I really don't like the Television show, nor the 1962 film. But....that's just my opinion.

Try the 1957 BBC radio serial.

It really helps if you don't actually see the flowers walking.

Some people prefer more traditional forms of payment.
