10 Cloverfield Lane 2016

     Michelle and her fiancé Ben have a fight and she decides to leave.  They live in New Orleans and she is driving through rural Louisiana.  She is involved in a car accident and her car rolls down the side of the road.  She wakes up and she’s in an underground bunker with Howard and his neighbor Emmett.  Howard tells her he has saved her from a disaster that has happened to everyone on earth and they are all dead.  She keeps thinking they must be lying because this cannot be true?
     This film is a sequel to Cloverfield from 2008.  While in development, this film was titled The Cellar and it was filmed in secret at Bad Robot productions.  Even cast members were not told the final title.  Watching is like riding a roller coaster?  You don't know and Michelle doesn't know what really is the truth?  Goodman adds a real creep factor to his character and you don't know what to believe about him either?  Sometimes the characters are getting along and other times they are after each other.  3* (This movie is OK)
