Movie Review: 10 Cloverfield Lane. Now That’s Frightening

10 Cloverfield Lane is one of the most interesting, truly scary movies I’ve seen in a long time. I’m not a “Scary Movie Guy” but this movie is not frighting in a “Haunted Way” but in a mind gripping “oh my gosh would that be horrible” kind of way.

I like movies that make you think. I like movies that allow you to enter the characters head and wonder what you would do in the same circumstances. 10 Cloverfield Lane not only allows you to go there it forces you.

It reminds me a little bit of “The Room” with some science fiction thrown in for good measure.

There were points in the movie where I was literally ducking down in my seat and turning my head in fear. We got out of the theater and my neck ached from the stress of holding my breath and fighting everything in my body to protect myself from the story.

Kathy liked the story but found the movie a little unnerving. Basically the storyline is a girl is abducted, put in a bomb shelter for her protection by a crazy man. He says there’s been an invasion and the movie is you and the characters trying to figure out whether that really happened.

The script takes you up and down and by the third quarter you really aren’t sure.

I recommend this movie but schedule a massage for the next day because you are going to tense up as you try to help the characters escape.
