Day of the Triffids is the most British of sci-fi films… having both genuine scares and at the same time plenty of unintentionally funny moments 🙂 With vintage film posters, country of origin is usually the most valuable (something carried over from book collectors), but in this case this UK quad also happens to have by far the best art for the film — a rare combination which makes this poster a long-time favorite of horror fans!
