Synopsis

This entertaining sci-fi horror, has an undeniable kitsch appeal, but it still has some shocks up its sleeve too. The film begins with a man, Bill Masen (Howard Keel), in hospital in London with his eyes bandaged after an operation. Luckily for him, this means he has missed seeing a meteor shower that has mysteriously blinded most of the population, so when he unwraps his bandages he can still see. Unfortunately for him, what he does see is an invasion of huge, walking plants with deadly poisonous whip-like stings, who are now exploiting mankind's newly-sightless vulnerability in order to take over the Earth...

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
