Love it or hate it? That’s the question.
As a movie of the “Blair Witch” type genre, it’s not something I’m particularly keen on watching too often…but, Cloverfield was great. The filming, at times, leaves you feeling a little dizzy, but the “realistic” feel from a handheld camera is fantastic for the subject matter. You’re left with questions unanswered and feeling a little uncomfortable with the “what ifs”…but it’s worth watching and it’s a short film, so easy to squeeze in on a school night! (And, just ignore the big goof at the end). I can’t tell you much about the subject matter without spoiling the film, but what I would say is watch out for the teeth.
4/5 – for the rollercoaster ride.
