Where did you watch this movie?

This youthful and fast-paced thriller is set in the summer of 1979, when 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.

Factual Mistake
The police car lacks a partition between the front and rear seats.
The creature's breath on Joe's hair during the final scene was actually J.J. Abrams waving a large sheet of cardboard up and down.

According to J.J. Abrams, the alien creature, when it finally meets Joe face-to-face, has the eyes of Caitriona Balfe, who plays Joe's mother.

Jeremy Renner declined the lead role in this movie, in order to star in Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011).

J.J. Abrams insisted that the train station scenes were actually shot at night outside, instead of in a studio.

This movie marks the acting debut of Joel Courtney and Riley Griffiths.

The video release has a supplement called "Do You Believe in Magic?" showing DOP Larry Fong doing magic tricks for cast and crew and Tom Cruise who apparently visited the set.

The train crash was largely improvised - there was no set storyboard for this key event in the film.

Bruce Greenwood who provided the motion-capture performance of the alien is credited as "Cooper" in the cast list, which was the creature's nickname on set.
