ET was eventually toned down, but creatures similar to the mischievous "little green men" reported in Kentucky terrorized an entire town in his movie Gremlins. Spielberg told Entertainment Weekly: It was going to be called Night Skies, based on a piece of UFO mythology ... where a farm family reported little spindly grey aliens attacking their farm, even riding cows in the farmyard... This farm family basically huddled together for survival ... It's a story that's well-known in the world of ufology, and we based our script on that story. The Kentucky encounter never made it to the silver screen because Spielberg was able to talk Harrison Ford's girlfriend at the time, Melissa Mathison, into rewriting the screenplay, producing the loveable character we know today. The creatures that the Sutton and Taylor families claim attacked them the night of August 21, 1955 near Hopkinsville, Kentucky, were not so loveable. It all started during a visit by the Taylor family to the Sutton's farm... [More at site... ] Listen to 'Strange Days...
