Super 8, that`s what we used to call really good reel films back in the 70`s. The story starts out with a group of kids making a zombie movie and listening to classic 70`s hits. When an Air Force train derails while transporting an alien bad things start happening in a small town. As the plot thickens, people, engines,and electrical equipment come up missing. The local sheriff tries to get at the bottom of the problem but is continually stiff armed by the Air Force general in charge. It`s up to the junior high kids to figure out what the alien wants and persuade it to leave. This movie has a few startling scenes as well as some kiddie romance. It puts you to mind of a super duper E.T. Overall a good flick.
