From executive producer Steven Spielberg and director
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 in town, and the local Deputy tries to uncover
the truth – something more terrifying than any of them could have
So after months of Internet hype and speculation it
turns that Super 8 is the Spielberg movie Spielberg never directed
himself - a case of “what if ET were a bad ass?”
Sigh, and we still remember the days when a youthful and
idealistic Spielberg claimed in interviews that he would never make a
movie with hostile aliens . . .

J.J. Abrams stole from, er sorry, homages the most.
