Alienation (Revisited) - Metropolitan State University


ALIENATION (Revisited) is based on Rod Serling’s “The Monsters are Due on Maple Street” from the Twilight Zone’s first season. This popular episode presents a very simple premise: Common people sent into panic and frenzy over a poorly perceived external threat. "The Monsters are Due…" is a suburban Lord of the Flies, a parable about the fragility of civilization, prejudice, and the susceptibility of nice folks to manipulation. ALIENATION pays homage to Serling’s teleplay, examining parallel themes of paranoia, suspicion, and mass-hysteria.
