Six months after the rage virus was inflicted on the population of Great Britain, the US Army helps to secure a small area of London for the survivors to repopulate and start again. But not everything goes to plan.
Cloverfield follows five New Yorkers from the perspective of a hand-held video camera. The movie is exactly the length of a DV Tape and a sub-plot is established by showing bits and pieces of video previously recorded on the tape that is being recorded over. The movie starts as a monster of unknown origin destroys a building. As they go to investigate, parts of the building and the head of the Statue of Liberty come raining down. The movie follows their adventure trying to escape and save a friend, a love interest of the main character. Written by

When Beth and Rob are sitting under the bridge at the end of the movie, Beth has her left arm up, touching her head. This should be impossible or at least excruciatingly painful as her left shoulder was pierced by a steel bar earlier in the film. See more »
It's 6:42 AM. Beth's dad's place. He's out of town. And it's already a good day.

At the end of the closing credits there is a garbled radio transmission which some say sounds like "Help us!", when played backward it says "It's still alive!" See more »
Look, there are some details of the plot and other user comments which will help you understand the film. But, I would like to suggest an alternative to watching Cloverfield, which will have the same effect but not quite as bad.
Go down to your local supermarket and buy some fresh prawns, leave for 5-10 days in the sun. Then take two long, sharp, rusty nails and heat the tips up in the fire. Eat the prawns and stick the nails in your eyes. Trust me, this will be far more pleasurable than watching Cloverfield.
Just awful! The only reason it gets a 1 is that I have no choice, however there is a nice girl (Lizzy Caplan) in it so she can have the 1.
