Confused speech, loss of coordination, and finally, suicide! Earth's plant life starts to develop a deadly neurotoxin that is deadly to humans. As shown, the person affected by the neurotoxin will begin to either stop what they were doing before and stand motionless, or repeat a line they were saying earlier until they stop talking. The affected individual will then commit suicide using anything lying around them. The motive is clear: mass murder, so is the driver: plants



7. Swamp Thing, 1982

The movie has a shambling element, a creature connected to the Green in the DC Universe. Intrigued?

Thought to be the mutated form of scientist Alec Holland, it was later revealed (by Dr. Woodrue from earlier) that Swamp Thing is actually a sentient mass of plant matter.

Swamp Thing is immensely powerful and the upper limits of his strength have yet to be established, he once regenerated himself out of tobacco. On a happy and heroic note, watch Swamp Thing, Swamp Thing is the official protector of both plants and (when deserved) humans.
