They don't show the whole thing, and they're low quality, but this is it.

Do not click these links if you don't want to see the monster.

I really want to see this one, sounds like it might even be worth a trip to the theater with the wife, only have to pawn her Toyota to get the money. Actually I'm going to wait for the DVD, I agree with Killer Bees, having a creature throw Miss Liberty's head down the street is pretty impressive, the trailers have been pretty good, looks like this one's worth a look.

Dude, if possible, you should see this one in theaters. It makes it TERRIFYING.

Okay, my son came back from the cinema a couple of hours ago.  He went to see it with my sister.

He said he's never been so scared in all his life  *lol*  Can you imagine trying to scare a 16 yo teenager these days?  Apparently being in a darkened cinema with the first person camera thing really adds to the terror of it all.

I'm still at work, so I won't find out the full story until I get home in another couple of hours.  Can't wait.

Just got home from seeing it.

I went into the film with the highest of expectations.  I figured the film would be "OK" but would fall well below what I was hoping for.  Thankfully the film far surpassed anything I had expected.  It is superb, fast paced, and all out terrifying.  I consider myself to be a big fan of horror films, and not much affects me anymore; but this film is just pure terror.  It all feels so...real.

I consider this to be the big event film of the year.  I can't see it working as well on DVD.  This has to be seen in a dark theater with the sound cranked up.  It's truly an experience.

I'm supposed to see a 7:20 showing of the spanish horror film The Orphanage on Saturday, but my friends and myself might go see a showing of Cloverfield afterwards as they're really wanting to see it.

As long as we get some good looks at the beastie than that's all I ask for.

I'm with Torgo, Nothing ruins a monster film than a bunch of jump cuts and close ups of warty skin or something.   So far its one I would see.

Torgo, you're seeing The Orphanage?  Be sure to check out my review in the Good Movies section.  I loved the hell out of that film.

I've heard pretty much nothing but good things about it.  I'm surprised that any of the theaters that are near where I live got it actually considering it's more of an art house type release film.

EDIT BY ANDREW:  SOME SPOILERS BELOW


I don't know what movie you all saw, but the Cloverfeild I saw the was horrible. I wasted a half hour and 12 bucks.
The motion of the camera made me sick (they could have switched views sometimes).
The beginning was so amazingly BORING. I was like ... whens the monster gonna get here?
There is practically no plot.
It was not scary at all, except for a few parts.
The movie made NO SENSE in many places. Why would Hud, while running for his life, lug that camera around with him?
Why would the other guy go through all that to see a girlfreind had did it with for one night. Yeah.... no.
And no camera could survive all that, let slone have that much battery. And flashbacks started at random spots, Hud would not have gone to look back at that in the middle of the movier (just like... who would keep the camera that long!?)
And what about Mel.. mel something? She just kept bleading until she blew up? No possible.
It would have been nice if the movie continued and explained things a little/a lot more.

Overall, I very much disliked this movie.

I haven't seen the movie myself, but I've heard a lot of bad things about it. The trailer itself didn't make me interested in seeing it either. It looks like Godzilla rehashed, from the perspective of a shaky cameraman. I'm going to wait until it's on television.

Well, that's JJ Abrams for you.  Look at Lost.  No explanation, just frenetic pacing and story you find yourself dumped in the middle of.

It's a good technique, but you do have to explain SOME things.  And never underestimate the power of a guy with a video camera wanting to catch some action.  Can anyone say YouTube?

I'd still like to see it, but I'll wait for it to come out on DVD.

You might want to put up a spoiler warning.  Those are some things that could potentially ruin the film for people.
