So first let me tell you that indeed there is a monster in Super 8.
The monster is an extraterrestrial being, although it is very big, it is not as huge as Cloverfield’s monster.
Video of Super 8 – Full Editing Room Film – Monster Revealed
The U.S. Government imprisoned an extraterrestrial that crashed its ship (OVNI) on Earth in 1958. The alien was tortured and treated poorly even though it apparently only wished to return home. One film shows that Woodward was a researcher at the time and was attacked by the alien, which causes him to emotionally bond with it. Thus, his crashing into the train was an attempt to free the creature.

While on the bus ride back to the Air Force base, they are attacked by the creature and the bus flips on its side. Nelec’s men are killed while Joe and his friends escape by breaking through the glass windows of the vehicle. The creature kills Nelec after a brief stand-off by smashing his head.
