10 Cloverfield Lane

Dan Trachtenberg (2016)

12 Certificate


Our Score
Effectively self-contained psychological horror bursts into full-blown science fiction in director Dan Trachtenberg's robust debut feature. A young woman (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) awakens after a violent car crash to find herself held captive in a doomsday shelter by a menacing survivalist (John Goodman) and his amiable bunker buddy (John Gallagher Jr), who claim the outside world has been devastated by a chemical attack - or worse! Should she believe them or is the deadly threat merely a ruse to keep her down below? If you've seen Cloverfield, the 2008 monster hit, you may have an inkling about what's going on, but that's not really the point. The film is as much a social allegory piece about differing responses to danger (should you withdraw, hide or wholly engage?) as it is an intense fantasy shocker. The involving scenario will certainly keep you guessing, as the acting trio mesh with ensemble bravura - Goodman is outstanding as the "is-he-or-isn't-he?" crazed fanatic - and make the nasty twists and gory turns riveting to watch before the climactic mayhem ratchets up mysterious surprises with more thrilling, heart-racing action.


A woman survives a car crash, and wakes up to find herself in an underground bunker, belonging to a survivalist who claims that a devastating attack has left the outside world uninhabitable. As he behaviour becomes increasingly stranger, she begins to fear she is being tricked and resolves to discover the truth for herself. Thriller, starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead and John Goodman.
