Creepy Things That Seem Real But Aren’t is a series that explores modern urban legends, bringing you a new tale each week.
When it comes to unsettling stories, a little truth goes a long way. Something can be 99 percent false, but if there’s one little bit of reality somewhere within it, it immediately becomes terrifying. You know it’s fiction… and yet, there’s a little tiny voice niggling at the back of your mind telling you that it could be true, that it could happen to you.

The first full trailer for the hotly anticipated J. J. Abrams project Super 8 has been released, and I’ve got to say, it’s looking pretty exciting! Ever since Lost, Abrams has become increasingly preoccupied with the strange and unusual, with the resulting projects (especially Cloverfield and Fringe) pushing the envelope a little more each time. It’s unclear whether Super 8 is a monster flick or an alien flick–perhaps it’s a little of both– but whatever it is, it’s shaping up to look fascinating indeed. Take a look here: More
See Iron Man 2 For The Trailers – Rumors of a Cloverfield sequel, tentatively-titled Super 8, will be previewed as a secret teaser trailer at some screenings. The canisters to unlock the film came with their own secret password. Secret 8, perhaps. (via Vulture)
