While shooting a zombie movie, on Super 8, a group of kids witness a train smash and something that emerges from the wreckage.

Enjoyable homage to all things Spielberg, late 70s, small towns, wide-eyed kids, adult conspiracies and scary monsters. In fact we can broaden that to include the Spielberg produced works of Richard Donner and Joe Dante as well. 3/4 brilliant let down slightly when the mood changes at the end and monsters, unlike children, that are better heard and not seen. The kids are all good, particularly Elle Fanning (no surprise really) who is a knockout.
