Storyboard Text

  • Theme Blaming others and trying to find a scapegoat
  • Evidence 1: Goodman's car starts by itself, which causes a commotion in front of his house.
  • Evidence 2: Tommy shouts out that there's a monster, so Charlie shoots the monster, which then happens to be Pete Van Horn.
  • After Van Horn died, Charlie blamed Tommy, but after all that chaos, the lights went off at every house, then it made everyone think they were a alien.
  • In the scene of the people of Maple Street and Les Goodman, they were fighting over Les's car going off. Les's car recently went off, and everyone saw that his car, from across the street. This happened right after Tommy told Mr. Brand not to leave Maple Street. Les Goodman wanted to start his car to go downtown, but after he got out of his car, the car went off.
  • In this scene, the people of Maple Street saw a shadow like figure walking down the street. Don Martin said that they might need a shotgun, but since Charlie was so quick to act when Tommy shouted, "Monster!" he grabbed the shotgun and shot. This happened right after everyone was fighting over Steve's ham radio set.
  • After all the lights went off on Maple Street, the people of Maple Street went crazy. After the death of Pete Van Horn, the lights on everyone's house went off mysteriously. This happened right in front of everyone's house, and went from scared and worried, to chaos. If Tommy never told the "alien story," none of the fights would've happened.
