The New Arrival (Super 8)

Basically, this is my attempt at writing the first main body of the 2011 J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg Sci-Fi thriller film 'Super 8'.

Then, he spun back around and something hideous was silhouetted on top of the overturned train. It was huge and menacing and, if Joel wasn't mistaken, it didn't belong here, not on Earth. The creature edged towards him, squealing softly. Tripping up on a piece of metal, Joel's arm was slashed open on a stray shard of broken glass. Closing his eyes, he prepared for the inevitable pain that was surely going to come. His eyes were tight shut. But then...
