Not because of the aliens, but because of the subject matter. It was in this scene that the movie takes a turn for depressing subject matter, at least for a little while, up until the scene when they finish boarding up the house (after the supper scene). Things such as a bird crashing into something in the sky that we can't see; an illustration of an alien ship burning a house occupied that length of the movie. It was hard to watch. Only after Graham says, "It's happening," does the movie, although still frightening, take a redeeming turn.
