Cloverfield

cloverfield

Viewed through a home video camera this suddenly becomes fresh and terrifying all over again. The concept of smaller deadly parasites falling off of the main monster and causing even more mayhem is inspired. Sure, the guy would probably have stopped filming after the first 10mins of the attack (even I would have ……probably) and towards the end of the film it takes on some qualities reminiscent of a Hollywood theme park simulator ride.  Cloverfield will probably inspire numerous rip-offs. Viewed purely as a self contained thrill ride, this is one of the best.
