evidence 1; in this scene , after all electricity went out, no one's car would start, then all of a sudden Les Goodman's car started. everyone started to blame him, even though his car started without him even being near it.
yeah, Les, why's you car the only one outta all of ours the one that starts?!
The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street Theme ; Don't assume or point fingers until you have the evidence to do so
hey how come your car is the only on that starts ?!
evidence 2; in this scene , Pete Van Horn volunteered to go over to the next street and seeif they were having the same problems that Maple Street was having. At the same time that he came back was the same time that everyone on Maple street was taken over by fear, they saw a dark figure walking towards them. Then, Charlie grabs a gun and shoots the dark figure thinking it was an alien from outer space, when really the dark figure he shot was Pete Van Horn .
i'm not just gonna stand here and wait for us to get killed by these things!!
evidence 3; After Charlie shot Pete, everyone blamed him for shooting him because they thought that the only reason he shoot Pete was because Charlie as working for the space aliens, and that Pete had maybe found out something that could help the residents or Maple street. After everyone started pointing fingers at Charlie , Charlie put the blame upon the 14 year old boy, Tommy
it's him, he's the one who knew the whole time!!!
