@Sklug thats a really interesting take..ive never thought of it like that but it completely makes sense
I lived next to a corn field in PA, every morning it was covered with dew , even if it didn't rain during the night.if you ran through it you would be soaked, and what if it did rain ? what plans did the aliens have for even a mild shower? if they were vulnerable to water they landed in the wrong place, they weren't carrying umbrellas, silly story.
This is not a true story mates:
1) Did not exist a spaceship without a mega beam laser destroyer
2) Did not exist a living being capable to build a spaceship and so dumb

7/10 anyway 8)
The ending completely ruins the rest of the film. Not that was a good film to begin with, but hey. Massive, mind-bending plot holes ahoy!
Love this movie especially if you look at it from the alternate prospective. However you look at it it's an awesome movie and very much worth watching. 9/10

good enjoyable movie 6.5/10
I meant to say: "It's about the return of demons" at start of my previous comment.

This also helps explain some of the seemingly ridiculous plot point particularly surrounding the water:

"the return of demons. Notice it's all about a priest's resurgence of belief, and a preordained moment of redemption-if-dared-and-attempted. There is no alien technology or weaponry or clothing of any kind, only a clawed, naked beast creature and lights in the sky.

Furthermore: The running joke throughout the movie is that people see these "invaders" in a way that's related to their particular frame of mind: The cop sees them as prankster kids, the bookstore owners see them as "a hoax to sell commercials," the Army recruitment officer sees them as invading military, the kids see them as UFOs... and the Priest sees them as test of faith. This understanding of the film removed my hatred of the "You've got to be kidding me; they were killed by WATER!" concept. In fact, the priest's daughter had been referred to as "holy" (as revealed during Mel's key monologue)–recognized by all who saw her at her birth as "an Angel;" and her quite particular relationship to water is shown to be very special and spiritual: In other words, she has placed vials of what are, essentially, HOLY WATER all around the house. (And the creature's reaction when coming in contact with this blessed liquid is EXACTLY like monsters/vampires being splashed by spiritual "acid.")

This view of the movie also explains the creature's actions: They act like superior tricksters, are not able to break in through closed doors, can be trapped behind simple wooden latches –all mythological elements of demons and vampire-like creatures of lore. It also explains the news over the radio at the end of the movie that an ancient method of killing the creatures has been found "in three small cities in the Middle East" - one would suspect the religious "hubs" of the three main Abrahamic traditions, each discovering the "mystic methods" of protection-and-dispatch that I’ve noted earlier.

Note also: All the Christian iconography throughout the movie, the references to "Signs and Wonders" (the true meaning of the title), the crucifix shapes hinted-at everywhere (check out the overhead shot, looking down on the street driving into town) and the ultimate fact that the entire movie is built around a Priest rediscovering he is not abandoned to a random, Godless, scientifically-oriented Universe but, rather, is part of a predicted and dreamed-of plan.

Now –these creatures may for all intents and purposes be some sort of extraterrestrial or inter-dimensional "aliens" –but the point of the movie seems to be that they are, in the ACTUALITY OF THE FILM WORLD, the dark stuff from which all the character’s tales of devils and night-creatures were born."
