When machines and appliances suddenly and inexplicably stop working, the townsfolk on Maple Street start suspecting each other of being infiltrators of some sort of group bent on conquest. A teenage boy obsessed with sci-fi comic books tells the others that it must be aliens from another planet. When some of the residents appliances suddenly start working again, each in turn becomes the object of suspicion. Paranoia ensues, and the neighborhood becomes a mob, especially Charlie (Jack Weston), who accuses everybody in turn, before becoming suspect himself, which unfortunately doesn't stop him. Steve Brand (Claude Akins) is the lone voice of reason, but to no avail. It is often said that "The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street" is a reminder against what is sometimes referred to as the Second Red Scare (McCarthyism, and HUAC activities), but it's not another one of those tales that tells us there's really nothing at all to worry about. After all, there were real aliens trying to conquer earth, so it can also be interpreted as a warning against communism.
