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
Follows a noticably similar plot trajectory to another bunker-survival picture, The Divide (2011), although with far less violence or sexual depravity. See more »
Perchloric acid is highly reactive with metals and organic matter. When Howard (Goodman) has Michelle and Emmitt help with the barrel of perchloric acid, it is contained in a blue plastic barrel, typically perchloric acid is stored in glass, one of the few containment vessels that does not oxidize in the presence of the acid. Also perchloric acid is more oily at room temperature and of a viscous nature, it becomes extremely volatile and is exothermic when oxidizing thus the electrical cord and metal wire within produces heat and react to cause the explosion when Michelle is outside the bunker.

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.
