Quotes

Holly: So quiet, it's creepy. On Saturdays people have their music cranked up, football games blaring or something. It's weird how they holed up in there.
Will Marshall: They just want to be left alone, sweetie, it's still a free country.
Holly: I know that. Stop acting so smug like you're the only one who knows what's going on! No wonder we don't fit in here, you act so above everyone.

In a way more realistic than the original, but still...
1 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a modern day remake/reboot of The Monsters are due on Maple Street, and one of the first TV dramatic depictions related to 9/11, as this was screened in 2003.

I say it's more realistic in that there's no aliens from outer space mucking around with the electrical grid in their downtime in the flying saucer. Here it's an army unit that has set things up. I wonder what happened to the people in the house that got burned down? I suspect because they were part of the army experiment, they managed to get out the back I guess.

Interestingly, none of the neighbors raised the ethnic issue of the mysterious neighbors if you know what I mean. That would have been incendiary and almost kind of profiling if you know what I'm getting at.
