Catch Me Daddy
Sameena Jabeen Ahmed stars as a girl on the run from her family with her drifter boyfriend in Daniel Wolfe's thriller
Dreadful special effects, a ludicrous premise and hammy acting make this cult sci-fi classic terrific entertainment
A meteor shower blinds the Earth's inhabitants in preparation for an attack by some mysterious plants in this hilariously po-faced adaptation of a Wyndham SF story.
Keel, his eyes bandaged at the time of the attack, is the one man who remains sighted. He now finds himself with the unenviable task of saving the world.
Some great setpieces - the blinded pilot in charge of his aircraft for example ("Tell the passengers not to worry, we'll be making an emergency landing soon") - work their magic, and if the script is a little uneven and even ludicrous at times, The Day of the Triffids is wonderfully apocalyptic sci-fi.
