So, my co-worker is telling me he's half way through the 81 TV version of DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS.
 Next thought...how many Killer Plant movies are there anyhoo?
 
I think we should keep it to where the plant is the central threat, or we'll get 'bogged' down is side dishes.
Soooo...here's my start.

GODZILLA VS. BIOLANTE.
DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS (3 Versions)
LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS.
PLEASE DON'T EAT MY MOTHER.
D'oh...gotta go. More later.

in one of those old portmanteau horrors from 60s there was one story about a strange plant that takes over and (iirc) kills people

remember one scene had a scientist putting a section of the plant under a microscope and saying  "look...brains!"

cant remember what film, ring any bells?


edit found it, it's from Dr Terror's House Of Horrors (1965) and that segment is called 'The Creeping Vine'

All I can think of is an OUTER LIMITS episode called "Specimen Unknown".

Yeah, that was the one I was thinking about.

I think this film is the first portmanteau I ever saw (I wish they make more of them) and it is still one of my favorites. Maybe because it stars those grand old men of British horror cinema: Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, and Michael Gough. And it is only Donald Sutherland's 2nd credited film appearance in a theatrical film.

What I did not know at that time, but later found out, if the victim of "the vine" looks familiar, it might be cause he was played by Bernard Lee, who was Sean Connery's boss in the James Bond series.

Wonder if INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS counts, since they are alien pods.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
