From IMDB Forum: No monster at all… a user claims that his father is a set designer currently working on Super 8, and that he told him the real plot, with no monsters/aliens/huge lions.
Warning: Possible Spoilers
This movie is about a scientific research gone wrong. 8 college students sign up for experimental research. The research changes their DNA allowing them to accumulate powers like mind control, strength, pyrokenisis, telepathic abilities and so on. The military finds out about the experimental program and pays a large sum of money to the scientist for the rights to continue the research and weaponize them. The scientist had stopped the research because they knew what it could be used for. But money corrupted them. The only way to contain the students who’s powers were still increasing from the experiments was to cool their bodies to a point low enough to keep them alive but to stop brain function. They sent them by train because it would be a fast way of travel while insuring that they would be contained. Unfortunately something went wrong with the train and it crashed. The freezer they were in stopped functioning allowing them to escape…They hide out and attempt to learn how to control their powers. What they don’t yet know is that the military has created super soldiers from the same research they purchased. Their mission is to hunt down the college students codenamed as “Super 8” and kill them before the experiment goes public.
This resulted to be a fake spoiler, Super 8 has a monster, here are the video and photos:
