The Day of the Triffids 2008

The Day of the Triffids: The protagonist is Bill Masen, an Englishman who has made his living working with Triffids, plants capable of aggressive and seemingly intelligent behaviour: they are able to move about on their three legs, appear to communicate with each other and possess a deadly whip-like poisonous sting that enables them to kill and feed on the rotting carcasses of their victims. The book implies they were bioengineered in the Soviet Union and then accidentally released into the wild when a plane carrying their seeds was shot down. Triffids begin sprouting all over the world, and their extracts prove to be superior to existing vegetable oils. The result is worldwide cultivation of Triffids.
