These are my favorite horror films with plants that do bad things:
The Ruins
Evil Dead
Dr. Terror's House Of Horrors -"The Creeping Vine"
Poltergeist
The Happening (even though they remain stationary)
The Day Of The Triffids

With all the horrible and unnecessary remakes out there these days, why has nobody remade Day Of The Triffids? All they need to do is be faithful to John Wyndham's classic novel, and make the Triffids a bit more menacing than they were in the 1962 original. Has anyone seen either of the mini-series based on this story?

I own Dr. Terrors House of Horrors. As bad as it is it's good. I vote for that one.

The 80's miniseries was really really good (though I've not read the book) - well worth watching...The recent one was pretty bad (though I still kinda enjoyed it)

Yes, I should've at least mentioned Little Shop Of Horrors.
The Guardian did have an evil baby-eating tree, but it was a terrible movie.

The alien moss from "The Lonesome Death Of Jordy Verrill" in Creepshow was a great pick too.
I suppose the Red Weed from War Of The Worlds is also worth mentioning.

The BBC remade this and screened in Christmas 09. You can catch one of the earlier incarnations free on blinkbox which is well worth a look.

Always enjoyed watching Goosebumps and Are You Afraid Of The Dark with the children when they were younger. I just remembered the Goosebumps episode Stay Out Of The Basement.http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/b/bb/Goosebumps_Stay_Out_Of_The_Basement_Cover_2.jpg

Oh man, I'm old enough to be your mother (way to bum me out:()

From what I've seen there are a lot of people around your age on this forum (I definitely feel like a senior citizen around here).

Not sure. I remember He Who Walks Behind The Rows traveled through the cornfields like a gopher, but I'm not familiar with the sequels.

That ended up in the Top Evil Food list, but you're right; it should have been in this list too.http://veganpotluck.files.wordpress.com/2009/01/killtomatoattack.jpg

Eh, age doesn't matter as long as your alive.

I don't know anyone on this forum, just a new guy sadly.

I always take the scary and the silly.:)

Looks like quite a movie; a Great White pine tree!

Couldn't find a screen shot, but here's a spooky White pine tree:http://farm1.static.flickr.com/21/29056783_95c492dedf.jpg
