Ahhh...what a nice and peaceful summer afternoon. A nice day to polish my car.
What happened? Whats going on...AHHHHH. I think the power went out.
I"ll go check other streets and cities.
Let's all calm down. Check the phones and radios.
The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street
Setting: Maple Street, U.S.A., late summer night at around 6:43. Characters: Steve Brand, Tommy, Don Martin, Mrs. Brand, Charlie, Sally, Les Goodman, Mrs. Goodman and Pete Van Horn.
All of a sudden the power went out, except for the street lights witch kept blinking then exploding and surrendering to the darkness. No one knows what's happening; from the meteor crash or some supernatural phenomenon. Quickly, people turn their backs to their closest friends and neighbors, desperate to find the one responsible. Pete Van Horn goes searching for a solution.
Understand the procedure?
The dark figure continues to come closer, people stand there fearful. Charlie takes the gun from Don, while Steve tells them to stop and think this trough. Will Charlie shot the creature or will the creature end them?
Give me the gun Don. Lets kill it before it kills us.
Put the gun away Charlie!!!
Charlie shots the figure only to find out...it was Pete Van Horn. Charlie had just murdered someone without even thinking. Now, people are blaming each other. Blaming Charlie of making the power go out, which made him kill Pete: who might've found info to save them all. Questioning their own friends for this disaster. A mob starts to form.
Maybe you're the one Charlie...killing all the proof...
I killed someone...
YOU KILLED PETE VAN HORN!!!
You killed a man Charlie...he might've found something to help us.
Charlie...why is your house the only one with the lights on...
It wasn't any of the people on maple street who caused this catastrophe...Figures 1,2, and 3 have done this. They come from the fifth dimension, and seek destruction of all. Stop the electricity or lawn mowers, and every human will turn against each other. Starting with Maple Street, then they will head to the next one, while they just sit back and watch everyone destroy themselves. These things cannot be confined to... The Twilight Zone.
So...we just turn off the electricity, their machines and radios...throw them into the darkness for a few hours, then sit back and watch the pattern?
Charlie: Its Steve Don: Its Tommy Women: No..it's Charlie Steve: It's Les
