Six months after the rage virus was inflicted on the population of Great Britain, the US Army helps to secure a small area of London for the survivors to repopulate and start again. But not everything goes to plan.
A shy student trying to reach his family in Ohio, a gun-toting tough guy trying to find the last Twinkie, and a pair of sisters trying to get to an amusement park join forces to travel across a zombie-filled America.
Cloverfield follows five New Yorkers from the perspective of a hand-held video camera. The movie is exactly the length of a DV Tape and a sub-plot is established by showing bits and pieces of video previously recorded on the tape that is being recorded over. The movie starts as a monster of unknown origin destroys a building. As they go to investigate, parts of the building and the head of the Statue of Liberty come raining down. The movie follows their adventure trying to escape and save a friend, a love interest of the main character. Written by
In the teaser trailer, the voice yelling "I saw it! It's alive! It's huge!" is that of Director Matt Reeves. See more »
When the main characters are caught between the monster and the Army's attack, we briefly see what appears to be a truck mounted with an MLRS pod launching missiles at the monster. There is no 'rocket truck' like this in the U.S. Army. The closest equivalent, the M142 HIMARS, does not resemble the one in the film. Moreover, each rocket from an MLRS pod would have been much more powerful than is shown, both in the impact and the blast as the rocket is launched. See more »

First of i would like to say that this is hands down the best monster movie made. Some people will say " The Host" which was a great movie, but does not compare to the suspense and terror in Cloverfield. The visual effects in this movie were absolutely stunning. Superbly acted by a mostly unknown cast added to the realty of this movie. Cloverfield definitely tops my list of movies in 2008 so far. A MIND BLOWING movie experience that must be seen.
one more note............. Don't LEAVE THE THEATER TILL AFTER THE CREDITS ROLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I warn you DON NOT LEAVE!!!!!!!!! After the long credits, a very important scene takes place that you cant miss. So sit tight and wait. You wont be disappointed.
