After 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
John Goodman was wearing a Missouri shirt through part of the movie. He was born and raised in Missouri. See more »
Howard has an issue with plates and glasses being set on his "family heirloom" dinner table; and asks Michelle to always be sure that place-mats and coasters are used. You might think with his Strict Navy past and rules/short temper, that he would also have set his 2 bottles on something during the first dinner scene, but there was nothing below them. See more »
Michelle, please don't hang up. Just talk to me, okay? I can't believe you just left.

Tension, shocks and lots of tension, a very good watch.
I've been a little critical of The Cloverfield franchise, particularly the recent offering, The Cloverfield Paradox. However, this film has some serious quality. 10 Cloverfield Lane has intrigue, mystery, surprise, shock, masses of tension and some unexpected sequences. As you watch you start doubting what you're being fed, you wonder if Howard is telling the truth (however crazy it sounds) or if he's a run of the mill psycho. The monster element is used to tremendous effect here, it really works on all levels, especially the shock factor, its presence is woven into the story well, unlike in the Paradox, where it's merely plonked in just because. Excellent performances all round, John Goodman is terrific.
A very enjoyable, intriguing movie, with plenty of shocks and surprises, I rate this, 9/10
