  • Evidence 1: When Les Goodman's car had started all by itself.
  • He was always an oddball.
  • It's him!
  • "I don't understand? I tried to start it and it wouldn't start. You saw me. All of you did.
  • Theme: Fear and suspicion are destructive forces
  • Evidence 2: When everybody were talking about how Mrs. Brand had said he was working on a radio in the basement.
  • So Steve...tell us about this radio. Are you using it to inform the aliens about us? TELL US STEVE!!!
  • It is none of your business Charlie so back off...It's just a Ham radio set. That's all.
  • Evidence 3: The scene where a dark figure was approaching them and Charlie just shot the person and soon when they realized that it was Pete Van Horn they thought that Charlie was the monster.
  • What happened?
  • He shot an innocent man...Maybe he is the monster, no...mmm...I am going to keep a close eye on him.
  • GET HIM!!!
  • Oh no!
  • What have I done?
  • In the scene before they had noticed that no electricity was working that nothing would turn and the power didn't work. Steve tried to turn on his car and it didn't work. That's when Tommy had said that the monsters don't want us to leave that one of these families are not who we think they are. Then right away Les Goodman turns his car on but it wouldn't turn on. He went towards Steve and his car had turned on all by itself. The neighbors than started to suspect Les saying that he was an oddball doing odd things. Les right away defended himself saying that he didn't turn it on, it had turned on by itself. The neighbors then started to back away saying things that they had caught him doing which were odd to them.
  • In this scene the neighbors are making their senses think that It is Steve who is the monster because they had heard Steve's wife saying odd things about Steve. Charlie then had said that you would work in some radio in the basement for hours. Steve's wife Mrs. Brand then tells them that it is just some ham radio set that she bought him with a book ,and could show them. Steve then tell them that no they will not be going in their house because they do not have a permit and if they want to look inside for them to get a permit. Everybody looks at Steve and Charlie making those faces of who to believe and not to believe, making everyone confused.
  • In the scene the neighbors had been arguing about Steve and his ham radio. Then in the distance they saw a dark figure walking towards them. Someone then took out a shot gun and said that this would be useful. Steve took it away saying that this would not do anything to the monster, Charlie right away took the shot gun from Steve and out of fear shot the figure. All ran towards the figure and found out it was Pete Van Horn remembering that they had sent him to check the other streets seeing if their power went out too. All the people looked towards Charlie, Charlie was explaning to them that he didn't know and did it to protect them from the monster. The neighbors then started to get the idea that he was the monster trying to get rid of them all.
