E.T. II, the mega-dark sequel that never happened

Evil, carnivorous aliens that follow E.T.'s signal back to Earth. Elliott, Gertie, and Michael tortured to the breaking point. Elliot's cries of agony summoning E.T. to the rescue.

Wow, what a difference a sequel makes. Even before the original E.T. was released in 1982, Steven Spielberg and Melissa Mathison were already working on a treatment to a sequel, E.T. 2: Nocturnal Emiss… er… Fears. Lucky for us, that movie never saw the light of day.
