Sex ●●● Vi­o­lence ●●● Lan­guage ●●● JJ Abrams, the di­rec­tor of Mis­sion: Im­pos­si­ble III and Star Trek, pays ho­mage to Steven Spiel­berg with a ter­rific sci-fi mys­tery that comes across as The

Goonies meets The X Files. In 1979 Ohio, a bunch of young­sters, led by Joel Court­ney’s 12-year-old Joe, are mak­ing a zom­bie movie when they wit­ness a dev­as­tat­ing train crash. Soon the mil­i­tary are swarm­ing over the site and strange things start to hap­pen. The film has a lovely nos­tal­gic pe­riod setting and the spe­cial ef­fects are stun­ning. 2011, 12, 111min
