To be honest, I wasn't really sure what to expect but since the critics were quite positive, I thought it should give it a try. Well, eventualy, I thought it was pretty good. Basically, it was some kind of mix of 'E.T.' and 'Cloverfield'. First of all, I really loved the way they perfectly recreated the 70's (the set-dressing, the clothes, the haircut,....) and it was like watching an old movie bu... read more

Fairly good movie overall. I kept waiting for that something special within the film to make it all worth it, and it never quite achieved it. A movie definitely worth seeing once, but otherwise that's the only time you'll need to see it. To me, twas a disappointment. I hope it is different for some of you!

JJ Abrams does it again!

After a US Airforce cargo train crashes just outside a small town called Lillian, the local inhabitants lead by a group of curious young kids begin to think the Airforce is hiding something about what was actually on the train.

Leading up to the release of JJ Abrams 2008 Monster movie Cloverfield, we were treated as fans to a genius marketing campaign and a brilliant new way of tell... read more

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 imagined.

"More Spielberg than Spielberg. J.J. Abrams homage to 80's cinema tells the story of a group of young filmmakers who get caught up in the strange goings-on in their town after a horrific train crash. Brimming with references to Spielberg's back catalogue, this adventure has some delightful dialogue and a great score reminiscent of John Williams. The train crash sequence is spectacular and the whole thing zips along to its perfect finale. A treat."
