Soon after leaving her fiancé Michelle is involved in a car accident. She awakens to find herself sharing an underground bunker with Howard and Emmett. Has she been saved from an apocalyptical event as Howard & Emmett tell her or are there other motives for her being held against her will?
The radio in Howard's very sophisticated doomsday shelter can't detect any radio signals, but Michelle's car radio easily finds them. The radio broadcasts are picked up at the end of the film, and due to their nature it is unclear whether they were being sent earlier, or whether Howard was being honest about there being no outside assistance given that he was keeping Michelle hostage.

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.
