Super 8DVD - 2011
In the summer of 1979, a group of friends in a small Ohio town witnesses a catastrophic train crash while making a super 8 movie and soon they 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 imagined.
From the critics
Coarse Language: This film is meant to feel like a 1980's movie, and they accomplish that partly through the amount of language uttered by young characters. If you're sensitive to language, "Super 8" is not for you.
Violence: "Super 8" is a thriller, which naturally entails a good dose of violence. Perhaps the "worst" section is when a character ends up in an accident that leaves his face dripping in blood.
Frightening or Intense Scenes: Like all good suspenseful thrillers, the audience is left wondering "what" the creature is, and where it will strike next. People disappear (usually) screaming into the darkness.
Sexual Content: Part of the language includes crude references to sexual organs.
Frightening or Intense Scenes: humans being consumed, persons being crushed, meat locker effect
Coarse Language: One F word and many S words. it's a PG-13 film though, but nothing over the top for a PG-13 movie.
Other: Why is this category even here? What could possibly be in here that doesn't fit into the above groups? Really extreme violence? Absurd language? Obscene sexual content? I mean really, what's up with this 'Other' category, it's kinda out of place?
Violence: Trains blow up, houses blow up, cars are smashed, and property is damaged. Not to a Micheal Bay level, but still a good amount.
