One evening on the quiet Maple Street there was a flash of light. Steve Brand was washing his car and his wife was making dinner. Randomly the power came off so they couldn't finish their chores.
When the power goes out on Maple Street Tommy tells story of his comic book. The story is about aliens coming to earth and taking on a form like a family. Charlie thinks this is ridiculous and doesn't believe it.
After the comic book story Les gets his car working. The residents accuse him of being the alien and he defends himself. Les tells them that one of them might be the aliens so they are all guilty.
So they are all like this?
Charlie sees a figure walking down the street. The residents think it is an alien so Charlie shoots him. It turns out it is Pete Van Horn checking from the other street.
Oh My GOD Charlie you killed him
The lights in Charlie's house turns on and everybody blames him for being an alien. Charlie tries to defend himself but chaos ensues with everybody trying to hurt each other.
Don't assume Charlie!
Come on guys it's not me its the kid Tommy!!
He's just a boy!!!
It reveals at the end that aliens turned off all the power and waited for the out come of it all . It turns out that the real monsters on Maple Street were the people living there.
Nope there are a lot Maple streets are out there. They are all different
