The Monster Are Due on Maple Street: Theme
By aidanc, Updated
This storyboard does not have a description.
Theme: fear and suspicion are destructive forces.
When Steve and Charlie are about to leave to go to downtown, Tommy stops them and states there are aliens disguised as humans.
"They sent four people. A mother and a father and two kids who looked like humans... but they weren't."
In front of Les Goodman's house, the residents of Maple Street question Les Goodman because his car starts by itself after Tommy states that there are aliens among them.
Tommy shouts "It's the monster! It's the monster!" When a dark figure comes walk towards the group. Then, Charlie shoots the figure, but the figure was actually Pete Van Horn.
"It's the monster! It's the monster!"
The fear of an enemy within the street makes everyone suspect each other, which makes them go into madness and kill each other because they think the other residents are aliens. The thought of it made them lose common sense because of the power going out makes them want to blame and ultimately kill someone so they can rest easy that the person "made the power go out" is dead
The represents my theme because Les Goodman's car starts by itself makes people suspect Les of being the alien. which makes people suspicious of everyone which leads to the town to be destroyed because they believe if they can find an reason why the electricity went out they can make it stop.
This supports my theme because fear of the unknown and the chance of being the alien took over Charlie and made him shoot Pete Van Horn just because he couldn't see him in the light. The town would become destroyed because after this happened the people began to turn on charlie, but charlie blames everyone, then in an attempt to find a scapegoat, they destroy the town.
