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 Deputy tries to uncover the truth – something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined.
Below check out the trailer, plus two clips from the Blu-ray supplemental material.
If that wasn’t cool enough, they’ve also launched a trivia contest to win a walk-on part in J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek sequel.
Full press release after the jump.
