Movies made with a super 8 camera or where some scenes were filmed with super 8 film. Please leave a comment if you have any suggestions or recommendations :)

*UPDATE* I'm now including 8mm film in my list as well, just to not narrow it down so much. I'd include 16mm too except that so many low-budget horror films were made on 16mm that I've seen so it'd be difficult to list them all.
