A strange new virus has appeared, which only attacks strains of grasses such as wheat and rice, and the world is descending into famine and chaos. Architect John Custance, along with his family and friends, is making his way from London to his brother's farm in Scotland, where hopefully, there will be food and safety for all of them. Along the way, they encounter hostile soldiers, biker gangs, and all manner of people who are all too willing to take advantage of travelers for a mouthful of food. Written by

The author of Death of Grass, John Christopher (real name Samuel You'd
for some reason,the IMDb site keeps adding an apostrophe to the name)
didn't see this film at the cinema when it was released.
Years later, when it was broadcast as a late night movie, he sat down to watch it in a comfy chair, a glass of whisky to hand. He lasted until the first advert break and then, sensibly, retired to bed.
This cries out to be remade - one or two of John Christopher's other novels would make interesting films, too.
John Christopher was often compared to John Wyndham and the similarity certainly exists - although Wyndham had the edge.
I wish IMDb would withdraw the 10 line minimum requirement - seems a bit arbitrary!
