A sci-fi thriller (1963) that sticks in the mind, thanks to deft pacing and a vividly paranoid premise: the earth's population is blinded by a meteor shower, and then waves of intelligent, flesh-chomping plants move in for the mop-up. The director is Steve Sekely, a Hungarian who worked in Germany, Mexico, Hollywood, Italy, and England; his peripatetic career deserves further investigation. With Howard Keel and Nicole Murey. 95 min.
