Episode 177 - The Happening and The Ruins

This week, we are all about the most terrifying threat known to mankind, shrubbery! Well, plants in general really. 

Have you ever asked yourself, "Self, what if plants decided that they had enough of mankind's messing with the planet. What would happen then?" Well, obviously seeing as plants are totally able to communicate with each other, and are totally able to synthesize deadly neuro-toxins whenever they feel like it, we'd be in a lot of trouble. At least that's the conclusion of our first film, The Happening

We then take a look at a much less silly film, The Ruins. When a group of Americans on a vacation decide to go off on an adventure with the random guy they just met, they end up stranded on an ancient Mayan pyramid where they have to deal with some not very friendly plant life. You may think that being attacked by a plant is a bit silly, but compared to the previous paragraph it's practically plausible! Plus, The Ruins has a lot in its favor that The Happening definitely does not have. 

Join us as we take a look at these strikingly different plant-based films.
