After getting in a car accident, Michelle awakens to find herself in a mysterious bunker with two men named Howard and Emmett. Howard offers her a pair of crutches to help her remain mobile with her leg injury sustained from the car crash and tells her to "get good on those" before leaving the bunker. She has been given the information that there has been an alien attack and the outside world is poisoned. However, Howard and Emmett's intentions soon become questionable and Michelle is faced with a question: Is it better in here or out there?Written by
When Michelle wakes up in the cellar room after the accident, she rips the drain tube out of her arm. This is supposed to bleed pretty much, if the vein is not pressed on for at least a minute, and would leave a conspicuous mark. After removing the tube, she briefly covers the wound with her palm for a second. Shortly after, the arm is shown without neither mark nor blood. Her hands are clean, too. See more »
Michelle, please don't hang up. Just talk to me, okay? I can't believe you just left.

To describe 10 Cloverfield Lane in one word: Genreless.
I won't say much about the film as I'm a strong believer of going in blind, but I will say that the performances, writing, and cinematic pacing worked perfectly together to create a truly unique film.
I loved watching it, and the moments of comedy sprouting up throughout made the duality between light-hearted humanity and dark confusion work perfectly together. I would give the Titles and Credits 10/10 as well, because they were just so damn fantastic and fresh and reminded me that titling is an art form like any other in the cinematic Genre. If you enjoy good film, you will enjoy 10 Cloverfield Lane.
