SUPER 8 is a US sci-fi action film, set in 1979, in which a group of young friends witness a train crash that sets in motion a series of mysterious and unnerving events in their small town.

Language

There is infrequent strong language ('f**k'); other language includes uses of the terms 'Jesus', 'hell', 'asshole', 'shit', 'bitching', 'pussy', 'son of a bitch', 'piss', 'douche' and 'dick'.

Threat

The young friends find themselves in several dangerous and tense situations, which include a train crash and various scenarios in which people disappear or come under attack from a mysterious force. The threat carries a degree of intensity, including moments designed to make the audience jump, but these are not overly sustained or disturbing.

Drugs

A man is briefly seen smoking marijuana. The drug misuse is criticised and is not glamorised.

There is occasional sight of bloody injury. A young boy enjoys using fireworks; occasionally he does so in an irresponsible manner, but this behaviour is clearly condoned.
