  • "The Birds" tells of birds which inexplicably begin attacking man. It is told from the viewpoint of Nat Hocken, a farm worker in an England peninsula, and his family.
  • "Monte Verità" tells of an isolated mountain, home to a mysterious sect rumoured to be immortal and feared by the local communities from whom it attracts young women who are never heard of again. It is told from the viewpoint of a nameless mountaineer whose best friend's wife disappears on a trip to climb the peak. It is based on the actual colony of Monte Verita in Switzerland which preached a return to nature.
  • "The Apple Tree" follows the actions of a man who, following the death of his neglected wife, suspects her spirit inhabits an old apple tree in his garden which he resolves to remove, but never gets around to doing so. That is his mistake.
  • "The Little Photographer" tells of a rich Marquise bored and dissatisfied with her life who attempts to spice up her life by having an affair with a photographer whilst holidaying on the French Mediterranean coast.
  • "Kiss Me Again, Stranger" in which a shy mechanic follows a cinema usherette home from work and is led to a cemetery. Only later does the mechanic discover the terrible truth about the usherette. A short film was later made, starring Leonard Nimoy and Juliet Mills.
  • "The Old Man" follows a family history as told by a neighbour who suspects the father of killing one of their children.
