The Day of the Triffids/Fun Facts
From The Grindhouse Cinema Database
- Referenced in "Science Fiction Double Feature", the opening song of The Rocky Horror Picture Show: "And I really got hot when I saw Janette Scott/Fight a Triffid that spits poison and kills".
- Remade twice, both as British TV mini-series, first in 1981 and again in 2009.
- Kieron Moore and Janette Scott were only added to the cast when it was discovered upon completion of filming that there was only 57 minutes of good usable footage available. The whole lighthouse sequence, directed by veteran Director of Photography Freddie Francis, was only added to help extend the movie's running time.
