Yeah, Cloverfield came out all the way back in 2008. It doesn’t feel that long ago, but the records don’t lie. Some might think that’s a little too long to wait for a sequel, but maybe we’re ready for another flick full of shaky-cam jump scares.
Well, that’s what the original Cloverfield was known for, but the sequel, 10 Cloverfield Lane, looks to take a more traditional (and less vertigo-inducing) approach with the camera work.
Starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead and John Goodman and directed by Dan Trachtenberg, the new film gives the impression of something less epic and more claustrophobic. Outside of the “everyone dies but one” genre, I believe horror does better when you can get to know the characters and Goodman has proven to be excellent in more serious roles.
Have to say I’m tentatively interested! If you’re keen too, the good news is you won’t have to wait long to see it — 10 Cloverfield Lane hits Australian cinemas on 10 March this year.
We’ll be done watching The Force Awakens by then, yeah?
