J.J. Abrams on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Super-producer/director J.J. Abrams stopped by 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC) to talk about his new movie, 'Super 8.'

All geniuses need to get their start somewhere, and we found out that, as a boy, Abrams used to direct friends and relatives in his own monster movies, which he shot on a Super 8 camera.

As Abrams squirmed in his seat, host Jimmy Kimmel unleashed one of the finest examples of Abrams' junior oeuvre: 'The Attic.'

To a soundtrack of spooky synthesiser music three plucky heroes, armed only with a rather large knife, attack the homicidal monster that's been hiding in the attic. If only the 'Cloverfield' gang had been packing such a weapon, things might have gone differently for them.
