The John Wyndham Collection

Perhaps best-known for giving the world creepy plants and creepy children, John Wyndham’s stories were about more than just invading horrors hiding in familiar forms. They were thought-provoking explorations of a dominant species' response to crises, using relatable tools that were themselves metaphors for many other things, each conceived in a markedly British, post-war frame of mind. The filmed versions may lack the same kind of layering depth, but are still mostly enjoyable on their own terms.
