Super 8

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 sheriff's deputy tries to uncover the truth -- something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined.

“Super 8’’ has been written and directed by J.J. Abrams, the wunderkind behind “Lost,’’ “Alias,’’ and the 2009 big-screen “Star Trek,’’ but its DNA comes straight from the original boy genius himself. Set in 1979, the movie’s a honey-colored evocation of Steven Spielberg’s most iconic period, when the director looked at small-town America from the deck of a visiting spaceship. It’s like finding a vintage Schwinn Stingray at a high-end bike store: From the no-name cast of resourceful kids to the flawed, good-hearted grown-ups to the extraterrestrial going bump in the night, “Super 8’’ is a fond and unexpected throwback to the days of “E.T.’’ and “Close Encounters.’’ You sense Spielberg agreed to produce the film just to make sure they’d get everything right.
