As we told you last week, the Blu-ray of the BBC’s modern retelling of The Day of the Triffids is hitting the market on February 22nd. Even better? Two lucky UK readers will be able to get their hands on a free copy courtesy of Dread Central and our friends at Showbox Home Entertainment and The Associates.

So … get your weed killer ready, and be in with a chance to win one of the two copies of the new The Day of the Triffids Blu-ray by following the instructions found below the synopsis and box art.


The Day of the Triffids – an effects-laden CGI extravaganza about a world threatened by carnivorous, man-eating plants – boasts a star-studded cast that includes Dougray Scott, Joely Richardson, Eddie Izzard, Brian Cox, Vanessa Redgrave, Jason Priestley, Shane Taylor, and Ewen Bremner.

With traditional global fuel sources dwindling, mankind’s search for an alternative has led to the cultivation and harvesting of the Triffid, a relatively newly discovered plant rich in oil extracts. Capable of seemingly intelligent behavior and able to move around on their leg-like roots, these dangerously carnivorous plants possess a poisonous sting enabling them to kill and feed on their victims.

When a highly anticipated, worldwide solar storm results in the billions of spectators who witness it being rendered totally blind, civilized society begins to collapse, leaving those few sighted survivors to watch helplessly as disorder unfolds. Amidst the chaos the once-captive Triffids find freedom and, with a voracious appetite for human flesh, begin roaming the planet, evolving and breeding rapidly as they descend upon towns and cities in search of food. With mankind facing imminent annihilation, it is left to a select few people to take a stand against the Triffids’ reign of terror and fight an epic battle to save the future of the human race.

Produced by Power and Prodigy, written by Patrick Harbinson, and directed by Nick Copus, The Day of the Triffids is an action-packed, fast-paced suspense drama that vividly brings to life John Wyndham’s classic 1951 post-apocalyptic bestseller.
