JoBlo: Springing from the minds of writer/director J.J. Abrams and producer Steven Spielberg, Super 8 presents a thrillingly imaginative, terrifying and visually stunning spectacle. Here we are returned to the year 1979 where a group of adolescence is coming of age in a small Ohio town. While that may not sound all that exciting, just imagine JAWS meets E.T.: THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL or STAND BY ME meets JURASSIC PARK. Or you could even compare it on some level to Stephen King’s IT. While it may have moments that remind you of these earlier features, the truth is that Super 8 still feels original and it is sure to have audiences on the edge of their seats upon its release.
