Doesn't make sense. Why should the power go off all of a sudden, and the phone line?
You might not even be able to get to town. It was that way in the story. Nobody could leave. Nobody except--
Well, I guess what we'd better do then is to run a check on the neighborhood and see which ones of us are really human.
Maybe you better tell us. Nothing's working on this street. Nothing. No lights, no power, no radio. Nothing except one car - yours!
The camera pans down slowly until we're looking at ten or eleven people standing around the street and overflowing to the curb and sidewalk. In the background is Steve Brand's car.
It's the monster! It's the monster!
Steve leaves Charlie and walks over to the boy. He kneels down in front of him. He forces his voice to remain gentle. He reaches out and holds the boy.
Suddenly there is a sound of a car’s engine starting to turn over. We look across the street toward the driveway of Les Goodman’s house. And now, just as suddenly as the engine started, it stops and there's a long silence that is gradually intruded upon by the frightened murmuring of the people.
Charlie slowly raises the gun. As the figure gets closer and closer he suddenly pulls the trigger. The sound of it explodes in the stillness. There is a long shot looking down at the figure, who suddenly lets out a small cry, stumbles forward onto his knees and then falls forward on his face.
