'War of the Worlds'
The Plan: In the Spielberg version of the H.G. Wells story, a network of alien ships rise from beneath Earth’'s surface and simultaneously destroy the world’'s biggest cities. The sky-high spider-like alien ships then go about the rest of the planet spearing humans, sucking out their blood, and spewing it back on Earth in cobwebs of guck.
Did it work? Actually, yes. For a good while, too. Until the idiot fleet caught “a cold” from mankind and perished without a fight.
