10 Cloverfield Lane - Staff Pick

10 Cloverfield Lane


Director: Dan Trachtenberg

In this cinematic cousin to J.J Abrams’ Cloverfield, newcomer Dan Trachtenberg artfully weaves the claustrophobic and dread-inducing story of Michelle (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), a young woman who awakes from a freak accident to find she has been dragged into an underground bunker by Howard (John Goodman), a mysterious doomsayer who claims he is protecting her from an apocalyptic event.

What follows is a virtuoso performance from John Goodman, who’s deeply unsettling demeanour keeps the identity of the film’s monster shrouded in a hushed uncertainty until it’s exhilarating crescendo.
