* Bookdumb: Joe. His talents are obviously placed outside school subjects. In one scene he hides a test marked "C-" from Alice.

->''"There's a reason that ''Super 8'', its cool thrills, also seems a work of innocence: it takes incidental inspiration from the films of a director who, back in 1979, was the J.J. Abrams of his day. Look closely and you'll see that ''Super 8'' [[GenreThrowback is a medley of tropes from the films of Spielberg's early prime.]]"''

* RecycledTrailerMusic: If the music from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tCRQQCKS7go this trailer]] sounds familiar, that's because it was from the movie ''{{Cocoon}}''. It can also be heard in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEzTeHJUk3k this trailer]] for ''Cocoon: The Return''.

* TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou: At the end of "[[ShowWithinAShow The Case]]," Charles talks directly to the audience, only to be interrupted by a zombie tearing out his throat. It's a ShoutOut to grindhouse movies that did the exact same thing, and to the framing stories of a few ''AlfredHitchcockPresents'' episodes being invaded by the primary plots.

An interactive version of the teaser trailer is bundled with ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'', found in the game's Extras section. There's also a prequel comic book that was bundled into the second issue of the ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'' comic book tie-in. It details the 1958 events referred to in the film and how Col. Nelec got involved with the situation. It can be read [[http://www.super8comiccontest.com/ here]] (SPOILERS ALERT).
