See also

Believe it or not Spring will be here, and one day we won't see snow. I know it's hard to believe that we'll see grass one day. Anyway, this list is a fun and creepy list that looks at movies with killer plants!

1. "Little Shop of Horrors" (1960)

"Little Shop of Horrors," is the ultimate killer plant movie. It's funny, it's dark, it's a cult film, and it's a Roger Corman's film. The movie is about a plant named Audrey Jr, who has a lust for blood. The cult film was so popular there was a musical made about and it spawned a remake in the 80s that was based on the Broadway musical.

2. "The Day of the Triffids" (1962)

"The Day of the Triffids," taught us about a dangerous plant, a triffid. A tall plant plant that is capable of aggressive behavior, and that can walk by itself. Oh and it likes to feed on your rotting corpse. Sounds terrifying doesn't it? It spawned some remakes of the story, that was originally based on a novel.

3. "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes" (1978)

"Attack of the Killer Tomatoes" taught us a lesson, that even food could try to hurt you, which vegetable plants are the worst! This movie and the others that are part of the series are crazy, but they are fun! Who knew that tomatoes could be so dangerous! It's another cult film film on this list.

4. "Creepshow" (1982)

The second story in "Creepshow," has Stephen King getting attacked by a plant-like organism from space that overruns him and his farm. It all starts because of a meteorite. Watch the skies and the ground!

So next time you're planting some pretty flowers in your garden, watch out because according to the movies, plants can come alive and attack!
