Cloverfield - DVD - 9/1/10

One I missed on its release but that I'm really glad I have finally caught.

Taking the found-footage style of "Blair Witch" this tells the, ludicrous, story of a giant monster landing in Manhattan and laying waste to man, machine and beast!

Some fabulous set pieces (notably the Staute of Libertys head rolling down a busy street and the attack of the mini-monsters in the subway tunnels) as well as strong performances from the cast elevate this from simple b-movie homage to genuine monster magic.

Good fun with some jump out of your seat scares along the way.
