Okay, so I didn’t actually go to a movie theater today. 10 Cloverfield Lane will have to wait for some other time (possibly after it’s been released on Amazon Video or Netflix). Instead I decided to watch this movie for a second time, because I’m not sure I gave it my all the first time I watched it. To be fair, I was on an airplane at the time, so I’m not sure I would have been able to give any movie my all, but still.
I liked it the first time, but I thought there might be pieces I’d missed. Watching it this time one thing stood out that I didn’t think about the first time: this movie is really terrifying. Not in the typical slasher film manner, though. This one is terrifying because you’re right there with the killer the entire time, seeing the world as he sees it, and you still don’t know what he’s going to do next.
I watched this initially because I love Anna Kendrick and Ryan Reynolds, and I was on a Gemma Arterton kick at the time. I’m happy to say that none of them disappoints in this film. If anything, this movie makes me really want to see Deadpool sometime soon. Oh, and of course anything with Anna Kendrick in it.
This movie is funny, terrifying, and charming all in one. It gets a bit hectic at the end, but not unnecessarily so, and the song at the end is probably the best part of the whole movie. This one is pretty entertaining and something I’d recommend even if you don’t usually like horror movies.
