Scene 16

Scene 16

  • Jillian's been sketching a picture of a mountain and Barry's banging out the 5-tone phrase on his toy xylophone, when the UFOs pay another visit. Clearly, images and sounds have been implanted in their brains, too.
  • The spaceship's electromagnetic field messes with all their appliances and electronics, and the extraterrestrials try various ways to get into the house. The scene is right out of an alien-invasion horror film—bright lights, screws unscrewing themselves, windows and doors banging, a force field coming down the chimney.
  • Jillian tries to protect Barry, but her son follows the lights through the doggy door and is gone, gone, gone.
