10 Cloverfield Lane

Michelle (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) has left her boyfriend and is headed down the road when she gets into a car accident. When she wakes, she finds that she is handcuffed to a bar in a cellar. Howard (John Goodman), her captor, tells her that there has been a chemical attack and that she is safe. Sharing the bunker is a third person Emmett (John Gallagher Jr.).  The “real story” unfolds over the course of the film, and I won’t say much at all to keep all of the plot twists fresh. Just when you think you are figuring it out, the movie goes in a different direction. Not really bloody, the success of the film is its consistent tension and suspense. It is well written, acted, and directed. John Goodman is exceptional and creates this character that is at times very funny, very creepy, and someone you want to empathize with. I love a movie that keeps me guessing as to what is going on; the pace moves quickly; and there are a lot of pretty amazing and unexpected plot twists that kept me guessing as to what is going on. Huge thumbs up from me for a film that is a really interesting twist on this particular film genre; it is an interesting blend of psychological horror, science fiction, and captor film. For those who like this genre of film, definitely go see it if you haven’t already.
