      “The Monsters Are On Maple Street” is a Twilight Zone episode which aired in 2002. In it, a group of neighbors are having a community meeting when all of a sudden the power is thrown out, the cellphones stop working, and their cars won’t start.

      They immediately begin to suspect terrorist action, and start to wonder how they’re going to


      defend themselves.

      They become increasingly paranoid when they realize that one house in particular has been unaffected by the changes.

      Also, they have never met the family that lives there.

      Tensions begin to rise and the members of the neighborhood start turning on each other (SPOILER ALERT!) And by the end of the episode, the viewer realizes that this ...


      • whole thing was a test performed by the federal government to see what communities will do in the event of a national threat.

        Of course they failed, setting the “suspect” family’s house on fire.

        Starring Andrew McCarthy as the one voice of reason, this was a classic episode if I ever saw one.

        I liked the sense of dread, the

        panic, and the way the story unfolded.

        This is perhaps because the episode is really a remake of the original called, “The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street.

        ” In any event, this installment reminded me of traditional Hitchcock wherein the show causes viewers to reexamine their own humanity.

        If you are a true fan of “The Twilight Zone,” you will love this episode.
