“Super 8″ Viral Hits The Physical World

SlashFilm reports that their headquarters received a mysterious "Super 8" film package in the mail.

Today /Film HQ received a small unmarked envelope containing an old box of for a Kodak Super 8 cartridge (Type A). Must be some creepy viral for the Steven Spielberg-produced JJ Abrams-directed film Super 8. Makes sense, right? So…. inside the box was, as expected, a reel of Super 8 film. And…

The 8mm film on the reel had been developed/printed. It begins with a missing placeholder card, and then shows a dozen or so scientist-looking people in a room.
