Film of the Day: 10 Cloverfield Lane

John Goodman and Mary Elizabeth Winstead in 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016)

You know what it’s like. One minute you’re speeding through the Louisiana night, the next your car is hit and you wake up in a cramped underground bunker with two men you’ve never met. That’s the fate that befalls poor old Michelle (the excellent Mary Elizabeth Winstead), coming to – as she does – in the company of John Gallagher Jr’s Emmett and a gruff survivalist called Howard (Goodman).

The latter claims that he pulled her from the wreckage and that it’s no longer safe to venture above ground.
Apparently something terrible has happened… or has it? Brilliantly effective, claustrophobic suspense thriller from producer JJ Abrams.

10 Cloverfield Lane from Friday 6 January, Sky Cinema Premiere and Sky Cinema on demand.
