This is Episode 80! Not Another Book podcast return, this time for Bookshybooks choice, 10 Cloverfield Lane, the second film in the Cloverfield franchise.
10 Cloverfield Lane is the J. J. Abrams produced 2016 film starring John Goodman (Howard) and Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Michelle). Following a car crash Michelle wakes up in a bunker, chained to her bed but receiving medical care, is Howard keeping her safe or keeping her prisoner?
10 Cloverfield Lane is at its best when it plays between psychological thriller and perceived horror, it’s let down when the aliens arrive. The tension hinges on Howard, Goodman is superb and the viewer is constantly questioning his intentions – is he really a saviour and keeping them safe or has he had multiple victims – there is no answer even at the end.
10 Cloverfield Lane works great within its genre, it might not be treading new ground but it plays on its strengths well and Goodmans performance makes it very watchable. With five people in the studio scoring got a bit chaotic but overall it amazingly scored 3.42. There was a bit more love over on Twitter.
