Before even talking about the movie, massive kudos have to go to everyone involved in the making of this film for keeping it completely secret. Just the fact that nothing at all was leaked until the release of the trailer is completely flabbergasting, all those people involved and nothing.

Also to have one teaser trailer released such a short time before the movie was released in cinemas added to the shock and suspense of the film.

Now about the film.

It’s brilliant. I originally planned to watch Cloverfield before seeing this but I didn’t get around to it but after seeing this film, you don’t actually need to. It’s ultimately a brand name with different films under its banner.

It has a brilliant cast, which shouldn’t be hard considering the case consists of only three people. John Goodman absolutely steals focus and is brilliant in every scene he is in!

I didn’t realize until the credits started rolling, just how tense I was when I instantly felt the relief of letting myself relax. It’s definitely a thriller with twists and turns up until the very end.

Don’t go into this film expecting a sequel to Cloverfield, you will be disappointed. This is an amazing film, maybe even one of the best of 2016!
