John Wyndham (most famous for his novel The Day Of The Triffids) wrote this one back in 1957 setting the story in the sleepy English village of Midwich, where a strange sequence of events culminates in the community’s women falling pregnant with alien children with glowing eyes and otherworldly powers.
