"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

The Kentucky encounter never made it to the silver screen

the time, Melissa Mathison, into rewriting the screenplay,
producing the loveable character we know today. The creatures
