The best thing to have eerily drifted through the enig­matic Cloverfield sto­ry­telling uni­verse fi­nally takes a bow on home stream­ing. In this shrewdly ef­fi­cient thriller from first-time film­maker Dan Tracht­en­berg, Mary El­iz­a­beth Win­stead stars as Michelle, a young woman who awak­ens from an ac­ci­dent in­side an un­der­ground bunker.

Her host (a creepy John Good­man) ad­vises her the world out­side has come un­der chem­i­cal at­tack, and it won’t be safe out­side for a long time to come. The en­tire movie hinges on an au­da­cious sud­den shift in tone that can­not be al­luded to here, but can­not be for­got­ten in a hurry.
