“The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street” Boom! “The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street” is about an ordinary street that turns from peaceful to chaos, and how easily people can turn on each other.

In 2003, again, no one knows why the power went out or why cars won’t start until Phyllis mentions the idea of terrorists. Since recent terror attacks have happened everyone believes that has to be the cause of the problem.
