"Set in Ohio in 1979, Super 8 introduces a troupe of six youngsters who are using a Super 8 camera to make their own zombie movie. One fateful night, their project takes them to a lonely stretch of rural railroad tracks and, as the camera rolls, calamity strikes — a truck collides with an oncoming locomotive and a hellacious derailment fills the night with screaming metal and raining fire. Then something emerges from the wreckage, something decidedly inhuman." After seeing that Super Bowl trailer, this rocketed up to just behind Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 as my most anticipated movie of 2011. I love the aesthetic of the film, it reminds me of the Steven Speilberg and Joe Dante childrens' pictures of the late seventies and early eighties, like E.T., Gremlins, The Goonies and Explorers, only with a slightly more sinister edge to it.
