In the summer of 1979, a group of friends in a small Ohio town witness a catastrophic train crash while making a super 8 movie and soon suspect that it was not an accident. Shortly after, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place. When the local Deputy tries to uncover the truth, what emerges is something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined.
Directed by J. J. Abrams and produced by Steven Spielberg, Super 8 was a hit with both critics and audiences, grossing over $260 million against a $50 million budget. Commented Mick LaSalle of the San Francisco Chronicle, this "is a sci-fi monster movie that keeps its sense of fun and humanity. It's a valentine to a classically American genre -- the B-movie -- and a nostalgic look back on a more innocent time."
