Cloverfield

Cloverfield carried out a is a 2008 monster/horror film produced by J. J. Abrams, directed by Matt Reeves, and written by Drew Goddard. Prior to the film’s release, Paramount Picturesviral marketing campaign to promote the film. The campaign included viral tie-ins similar to the Lost Experience. The film follows five young New Yorkers who throw their friend a going-away party on the same night that a gigantic monster attacks the city.The movie follows the journey of five friends after the shock attack from an unidentified entity on New York City interrupts a going away party for Rob, as filmed by Hud. The five initially attempt to escape the city, but after losing one friend, Jason, on the Brooklyn Bridge, change plans to rescue Beth, a friend caught in the attack in a different part of the city.

The story reveals some details about the eponymous monster but does not focus on the combat against the beast. As the characters travel through the city, trying to avoid threats caused by the monster’s rampage, the damaged footage shows flashbacks to an earlier day Rob and Beth spent together.

The film ends with Rob, Beth, and Hud escaping via helicopter as the military attempt to bomb the creature. After surviving the initial bombing, the creature promptly attacks the escaping helicopter causing it to crash. Although the three survive they are again attacked by the creature (resulting in Hud’s death) and the remaining characters escape to the underpass of a bridge, where they are subsequently caught in an explosion and trapped beneath rubble. The film ends with the camera cutting out. Post credits, there is a garbled message heard.
