Nora Hall: It's hard to imagine. Carnivorous trees that move on their own roots.
Dr. Arthur Beecham: Not carnivorous. Omnivorous. All-devouring. Our bogey has no class at all. He'll eat anything, even other trees.
Bob Spaulding: What would create a monster like that?
Dr. Arthur Beecham: Antarctica. A place where the nights are six months long.

truly, an experience in bargain basement cinema
21 January 2000 | by (Cold Spring, KY) – See all my reviews

For years on Thanksgiving (appropriately) I and a bunch of friends used to get together and watch lousy movies all day. I then took an informal poll as to which was the worst. This was the hands-down, runaway winner at one such gathering. Whatever talent Mamie Van Doren ever had, she obviously left in her other tight-fitting blouse. (It's interesting to note that as the movie runs on, and gets more insufferable, Mamie's blouses get tighter.) Bobbie Van's utter lack of talent for anything stands naked for all to see, and it's the most horrifying thing in the film. As for the rest of the cast, they obviously know the film's a grade Z disaster and are just walking through it. And, despite the passing resemblance to the ambulatory flora of "Day of the Triffids", the monsters could give "The Horror of Party Beach" or the crawling carpet swatch in "The Creeping Terror" a run for their money as the silliest monsters going. The IMDb should let us vote with negative numbers, or at least give offenders like this a zero!
