It’s been eight years since Matt Green’s Cloverfield brought authenticity to the big monster movie with Blair Witch-style shaky cam and tonnes of carnage. Although light on character, the intense action set-pieces made for one hell of roller coaster thrill-ride on the big screen. Going in the opposite direction, Dan Trachtenberg’s quasi-sequel 10 Cloverfield Lane relies heavily upon its three leads for the majority of its screen time; the labyrinth of New York replaced by the claustrophobic confines of a nuclear bunker.
