Storyboard Text

  • Fear and Paranoia
  • Fear and Paranoia: Example 1
  • Go ahead Steve. What kind of "radio set" you workin' on. I never seen it. Neither has anyone else. Who you talk to on that radio set?
  • Fear and Paranoia: Example 2
  • It's the monster! It's the monster!
  • Fear and Paranoia: Example 3
  • Nothing's working on this street. Nothing. No lights, no power, no radio. Nothing except one car – yours!
  • This example represents fear and paranoia because Charlie is questioning Steve about his radio set without thinking the situation through. Charlie gets paranoid and wants to blame Steve to take the blame off himself.
  • Mankind As Its Own Worst Enemy
  • In this example, the people of Maple Street get paranoid when they see a dark figure who they don't know approach them. Charlie, trying to be the hero of the group, decides to shoot the "monster" without clear judgement on who that person may be.
  • Mankind As Its Own Worst Enemy: Example 1
  • Just stay right where you are, Steve. We don't want any trouble, but this time if anybody sets foot on my porch, that's what they're going to get – trouble!
  • Charlie, like always throughout the story, is quick to point the finger at anyone else but himself. In this instance, its Les Goodman. He tells Les that his car is the only one that's working, making Les the "monster."
  • This scene demonstrates mankind as its own worst enemy because Steve and the other people of Maple Street believe that Les is the "monster" just because at night he stares at the sky and looks at the stars. They allow their emotions to get the better of them.
