The Double Feature: Super 8 and Attack the Block

Sabienna Bowman

Sabienna is a freelance writer, pop culture junkie and unabashed fangirl. She blames an early exposure to The X-Files and the Must See TV era of NBC for her twin life-long loves of sci-fi and sitcoms. She's not sure where her all-consuming love for all things British came from, but it led her to Doctor Who so she doesn't complain.

  • I saw both of these movies last year and love the Double Feature idea!  These two would definitely work together, which is awesome since they’re so different in terms of production (huge production vs. smaller).

      Thank you!

  • Oh I’m loving The Double Feature and these are some great choices for the first one. I saw both films and loved them both, but I never thought of how great they would work together.

    As you said as much as the premises sound similar, they are two absolutely different film, yet both brilliant.

    Thanks for reminding me of how cool they are. I might have to schedule a double feature night to rewatch them.

      Thanks, Sandie! Super 8 and Attack the Block were two of my favorite films from last year. On the surface they don’t immediately seem like a natural fit, but they really do go together fantastically.
