According to visual effects producer Annie Pomeranz, puppets were used in the scene involving the "parasites" inside the tunnel. The scene turned out to be more interactive than originally thought, and CGI animation was required. However, director Matt Reeves said that the scenes with the puppets were too "goofy". See more »

Cloverfield delivers the thrills - but haters of the Blair Witch style should be wary!
So, I went to a 5PM showing of Cloverfield today. It was pretty good. I found the characters to be very human and developed quite nicely over the course of the story. The special effects were excellent, with quite a few "oh $#!@" moments.
Be warned: If Blair Witch Project made you nauseous, then I don't recommend Cloverfield. The *entire* movie is filmed in the "handy-cam" style of the trailer - but in my opinion, it works better here than in Blair Witch. It helped draw you into the movie and make you feel like you were in it, and it made the CGI more convincing.
Very intense film.
