Monsters come in many forms. This isn’t a direct sequel to the 2008 found-footage monster movie.
Neither is it a captivity thriller, despite Mary Elizabeth Winstead being chained to a bed in an underground bunker by John Goodman. Claiming to have saved her from a mysterious “attack” that has rendered the outside world uninhabitable, Goodman appears to be more benefactor than captor, and visual evidence supports the possibility there’s something seriously wrong beyond the confines of their shelter. That’s when this claustrophobic thriller begins to seriously mess with you. Is Goodman a delusional psychopath and the real monster of this new visit to Cloverfield? Or is there something worse waiting outside? That’s for you to discover. It’s impossible to look away from this cleverly constructed and incredibly tense little nail-biter, which conceals its central mystery until the final act.
