Who the hell decided it was a good idea to write about plants as
terrifying monsters? My first experience with this was smack dab in the
middle of my Goosebumps phase when I read Stay Out of the Basement, where
two siblings suspect that their scientist father may not actually be
their father, but rather a crafty plant that has taken on his likeness.
Of course, I know that this wasn’t the first time an author had
written about evil plants, but that story planted a seed of fascination
inside of me (get it?) that’s refused to die. As far as fictional
monsters go, plants may not be able to physically chase you down, but
let’s be real here – it would be impossible to hide from them. They’re
everywhere, and they’re so commonplace that they can sneak through our
lives almost completely undetected. Just this afternoon, a coworker
commented on a potted plant that we’ve had in our library office for
YEARS that I completely forgot about. (The thing’s still alive too,
despite the fact that no one’s watered it in months. I don’t trust it.)
Rioter A.J. O’Connell shares my bizarre fascination with murderous plant stories,
but if you’ve read A.J.’s list and still aren’t paranoid enough about
the local plant life rising up to snuff out all of humanity, I have a
few more books to freak you out.
November 20, 2021 - Man-Eating Plants Kill 160 Colonists
On November 20, 2021, the seaQuest DSV responded to a distress call from Calimar Colony, a United Earth Oceans horticultural facility. Upon arrival, the crew of seaQuest discover all 160 colonists missing.
After further investigation, including bringing some plant samples aboard the ship for study, they discovered that the plants were capable of disintegrating a human body. The plants had killed all of the colonists, and began working on seaQuest’s complement. Eventually, the seaQuest crew was able to destroy all of the mutated plants and quell their uprising.
