10 Cloverfield Lane

10 Cloverfield Lane is a thriller/fantasy movie directed by Dan Trachtenberg. The movie’s plotline is based around the protagonist Michelle and her story after being abducted by a man named Howard. The movie starts with Michelle getting into a car accident and then waking up in an unfamiliar room. She later finds out that Howard has locked them both inside a bunker he has made. He tells her that neither of them can leave because there has been a nuclear attack on the world and that they would need to stay there for a year to ensure their safety. Howard also has many conspiracies about aliens and believes they could be the ones behind the attack. Michelle starts trusting Howard more and more as the movie goes on, but her opinion changes as she starts to believe that Howard is a murderer. This leads to Michelle planning an escape.

The ending of the movie is unexpected and a little bit disappointing. After Michelle kills Howard and escapes from the bunker she realizes that there hasn’t been a nuclear attack but instead an invasion of aliens. Throughout the whole movie viewers get the feeling that Howard is mentally disturbed and that this is just a typical abduction movie. And then putting aliens in at the end adds too many elements to this movie and it gets confusing.

Overall the movie was enjoyable besides the last 10-15 minutes.

    When I first heard about this movie a long time ago I assumed it was a scary movie (I hate scary movies!!) and said I wasn’t going to watch it but because of your review I kinda do now! It seems pretty interesting and different than I thought it would be. Thanks Natalie!!

    I was just looking at this on Netflix the other day. I watched the first 10 minutes and fell asleep… (from lack of sleep, not the movie) but after reading this I want to go back and actually watch the whole thing. I tend to look weird endings so maybe I will enjoy it. Good post!
