    Super 8

    I know this is a forum about writing and that Super 8 is a movie, but if you want to see a visual example of some mighty fine writing, go check it out. It's a great movie.
    With some great music in it too.
    If you're a sci-fi horror fan child of the 70's, you'll love this one.

    I've been looking forwards to this one.
    Unfortunately, in my country I have to wait till the second week of August before I can see it.
    Fortunately, I'll be visiting the US in July, so hopefully it's still around then.

    Hi frik51,
    I expect Super 8 will still be in theaters here in the U.S. next month. It's a fun movie--lots of scary and lots of funny. And the kids in it were fantastic actors.

    I didn't think it was funny at all. The movie did have a good level of suspense, holding back on showing the 'monster' - similar to how they did it in the movie titled Monsters. The movie was good, just not scary. But that is just my opinion. Still, I would watch it in the theaters once. It reminded me of ET meets Explorers, with a suspenseful PG-13 twist.

    I want to see this when it hits DVD I think. I am more anxious for this Apollo 18 movie.

    I am excited for the Fright Night remake-though I am usually a bigger fan of the originals, I never get pissed when someone remakes something in their own style. I see it as one more horror movie for me to see That makes me happy!

    It seems many of us like the movies.
    Isn't there a place for a movie thread somewhere?

    Dan?

    Yeah, but Colin Farrell... I just don't really see him in a horror flick.

    Great idea, maybe as a sub forum in general discussion?

    Wow, good to see a new preview for Apollo 18, was interested in it when I first heard of it but there was very little to see. It could end up being a horrible movie, but I wanna see it

    I just love the idea of a horror story set in that environment in a time when we were still somewhat new to space.

    I am really looking forward to Super 8. I think I'll go see it sometime this week for my birthday. I wasn't so sure about it at first, but it seems to be getting great reviews.

    I have seen almost everything Troma has ever made-they don't get any worse than that, but I still have a little spot in my heart for Tromaville! Both my boyfriend and I feel that even a bad horror movie is better than a good movie of any other type!

    I wasn't all that enthused about seeing it either, but my husband talked me into it thinking I'd enjoy watching the kids making their super 8 movie. My older brother used to make super 8 horror films when we were kids. I had a small acting part in his movie about killer rats, as well as his swamp monster one. Well, actually I was more like an extra. My older sister though, got the starring parts.

    Super 8 was a very good movie. I thought that it incorporated a lot of humor along with the suspense and action. As far as scary? Not really. But then again, I don't think that there are many movies that can really scare me. Sure, they can make you jump but so can a pin in the ass.

    I'm curious to know what films actually scared people. When was the last time you saw a film that was really scary? Most people will point out something they saw as a kid, but what about something you saw when you were an adult?
