It’s official: 2008 is the year of vicious, man-eating plants. Not since Killer Tomatoes have we seen such misbehavin’ ways from the Earth’s flora.

We’ve already told you a bit about M. Night Shyamalan’s new flick The Happening (coming in June) — which features plants around the world releasing deadly pollen that causes everyone to commit suicide. And now, in The Ruins — which opens this weekend in theaters — we’ve got a Little Shop of Horrors type situation taking place in a Mexico jungle. Without the singing. Or Rick Moranis. From the article,

And it seems the plant has “evolved” into this vicious human-eating state, much the way Shyamalan’s plants have evolved that suicide-inducing toxin in The Happening. Now I’m actually vaguely intrigued by the movie, since it’s high time plant monsters made a comeback.”

I couldn’t agree more. It’s time plants were given the opportunity to shine as the big bad. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to run home and water mine before it discovers where I keep the knives…
