Some Thing Has Found Us.
|When something unimaginable attacked new york, six friends caught it all on camera. This is the firsthand account of their run-in with the rampaging horror called cloverfield.|
"...Reeves' breathlessly fast-paced Cloverfield is going to resonate with New York audiences in a way no other horror film has. Jack Mathews, New York Daily News
"...a surreptitiously subversive, stylistically clever little gem... Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"...intense and original...a pure-blood, grade A, exultantly exhilarating monster movie. Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"A dazzling experiment that paid off immensely, this is cinematic pleasure at its purest. Olly Richards, Empire
"...a thoroughly intense and mostly entertaining movie. Pete Vonder Haar, Film Threat
"...far scarier than the big-budget remakes of "Godzilla" and "King Kong," more engaging than "I Am Legend"... Shawn Levy, Portland Oregonian
Editor's NoteDirector Matt Reeves (THE PALLBEARER) and producer J. J. Abrams (LOST, ALIAS) turn a mysterious monster loose in Manhattan in the disaster flick CLOVERFIELD. The movie begins at a party for Rob (Michael Stahl-David), who has accepted a promotion that will send him to Japan. Hud (T. J. Miller) is entrusted with the responsibility of videotaping the party--and as the trouble grows, he holds on to the camera, recording everything that happens. In fact, the entire movie is seen through the lens of his camera, reminiscent of THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT. As terrified people in a post-9/11 New York City take to the streets, Rob decides to head uptown to try to save Beth (Odette Yustman), the woman he loves, though he's afraid to tell her so. Rob is joined by his brother Jason (Mike Vogel), Jason's girlfriend Lily (Jessica Lucas), Lily's friend Marlena (Lizzy Caplan), and Hud, who has a thing for Marlena. Rob is determined not to give up, even after almost being crushed by the Statue of Liberty's head and as the military shows up to force evacuation of the city. Reeves and first-time screenwriter Drew Goddard, who previously has written television episodes of such series as BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, ANGEL, ALIAS, and LOST, focus in on the central aspect of the story: people trying to survive the monster attack. Very little else is explained, since the story is told completely through the video camera. And there is no additional score to heighten the drama; the only music is that which is picked up by Hud and the camera's microphone, including snippets of songs by Kings of Leon, Parliament Funkadelic, Of Montreal, and others. The anticipation of CLOVERFIELD's release was enhanced by a viral marketing campaign that included Web sites built around the main characters and even the fictional drink Slusho.
Cloverfield - DVD Review

|We should have seen this coming. Team Cloverfield dropped more than enough hints suggesting they knew what they were doing, from the inspired viral marketing campaign to the seeds of a deeper mythology planted on message boards. But with hype meters peaking, cautiously optimistic fanboys willing to entertain the notion that a good movie could be released in January sharpened swords for a potential backlash. With apologies to Public Enemy, believe the hype. Cloverfield director Matt Reeves has created an abnormality, a visceral monster movie that doesn't overly concern itself with its actual monster. The filmmaker certainly doesn't go out of his way to show his beast. Not because he doesn't want to, but because he can't....read the full review|
