Day of the Triffids

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the film when the hero wakes up blindfolded after a night's sleep he is clean shaven.

Correction: Once upon a time, nurses use to do the sorts of helpful things like shaving patients, hair cuts etc., and he had been bandaged up for considerably more than just one night prior to the meteor shower - it was only the absence of medical care that meant he risked removing the bandages to find out what was going on.

Continuity mistake: When the guy is in the mountains he burns some of the triffids at the fence and you can clearly see them frying, but when the camera pans across the garden later there are triffids but they are all fire-free and there are no bodies.

Bill Masen: Feel guilty, hmmm?
Christine Durrant: Maybe.
Bill Masen: You know why?
Christine Durrant: Why?
Bill Masen: Because you survived. Bettina, Coker and all the rest dead. And you're alive, and you wonder why.
Christine Durrant: That's exactly right.
Bill Masen: Yeah, I know the feeling. During the war, you get a ship shot out from underneath you. All your friends gone, and only a handful left. And you ask yourself "Why me? Why not someone better?"
