During a summer evening, on Maple Street, everyone is enjoying the evening doing their house work. As they were working suddenly a flash of light went by and everyone was left without power. Charlie, one of the people that live in the street is with everyone talking about what to do.
Tommy, a young boy, starts to tell stories about aliens and how they don't want anyone to leave the street because they want to take over. As the people in the neighborhood listen they start to get the feeling it could be true.
As everyone was talking and Tommy was telling everyone about the aliens, Les Goodman was at his car away from the group. Everyone began to look at Les, he steps away from the car and it suddenly starts on its own. Everyone in the group turns to a mob and begins to run towards his house.
As everyone is arguing about who is the "alien" they suddenly see a dark figure walking towards them. Don suddenly pulls out a shotgun, Steve takes it from him and says they aren't going to use it. Charlie takes the gun and shots the figure walking toward them, they walk towards the figure and it was Pete Van Horn coming back with news.
Everyone thinks that Charlie is the "alien" and people start chasing after him. As they are the lights of houses and cars start and everyone starts blamimg everything.
I didn't do it!!
Since everyone starts to blame everyone else they start going crazy. The people on Maple Street are the real monsters on Maple Street.
