10 Cloverfield Lane

Two’s company, three’s a paranoia-riddled crowd in 10 Cloverfield Lane, a thrilling companion piece to the 2008 found footage sci-fi Cloverfield, which witnessed an otherworldly attack on New York City through the lens of a resident’s camcorder.

The monsters in Dan Trachtenberg’s suffocating three-hander are distinctly human but no less terrifying, driven to acts of violence and barbarity in the name of self-preservation.

10 Cloverfield Lane is a polished masterclass in suggestion that sends chills down the spine with unsettling regularly.

John Goodman is genuinely creepy as the conspiracy theorist who doesn’t tolerate defiance of his rules in his underground lair.
