Storyboard Text

  • Man (Charlie) v.s. Man (Neighbors) Charlie shot a black shadow figure that he thought was an alien, but it was Pete Van Horn. All of the neighbors think Charlie is making the power go off in their houses because he grabbed the gun and shot a neighbor. The neighbors are against Charlie and want to kill him. They are throwing rocks at his house. Charlie has to persuade them it is not him. Directly in the text Charlie says, "Look, look I swear to isn't me...but I do know who it is...I swear to you, I do know who it is. I know who the monster is here. I know who it is that doesn't belong. I swear to you I know."
  • Man (Charlie) v.s. Self (Himself) All the neighbors are crowded on the sidewalk looking at a dark shadow figure coming towards them. Tommy said it was the monster. Charlie pulled the gun from Steve and aimed it at the figure. Charlie said, "No more talk, Steve. You're going to talk us into a grave! You'd let whatever's out there walk right over us, wouldn't yuh? Well some of us won't." Charlie was going back and fourth on whether not he should shoot the figure. He made a decision and shot the figure who was not a monster, it was their own neighbor.
  • Man (Neighbors) v.s. Society (Monsters) The monsters are people inside a space craft who are trying to destroy the people on Maple Street. The figures in the space craft are not hurting the people literally, they are tricking them into hurting each other. They had a plan. "Understand the procedure now? Just stop a few of their machines and radios and telephones and lawn mowers...throw them into darkness for a few hours and then you just sit back and watch the pattern."
  • Get him!
  • What if it's not the monster?
  • We tricked them.
