Cloverfield

"Some Thing Has Found Us"

Cloverfield revolves around a monster attack in New York and follows the adventure of five people from the perspective of a hand-held video camera, while they try to save a friend and escape. The movie is exactly the length of a DV Tape and a sub-plot is established by showing bits and pieces of video previously recorded on the tape that is being recorded over.

Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The voice yelling "Oh my God!" repeatedly when the head of the Statue of Liberty lands on the street is producer Bryan Burk.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): When Rob, Lily and Hud are coming to get Beth, the floor they go into on the standing tower is marked "57". This is incorrect, since, in fact, Time Warner Center only has 55 stories.
  • Movie Goof (incorrectly regarded as a mistake): In the theatre, it is obvious that the footage is of very high audio-video quality, including multi-channel surround sound and ultra-high-resolution video at 24 frames per second, typical of movie productions, as opposed to 30-frame-per-second digitally compressed video with stereo sound that can be created with most consumer video. However, this is a necessary and deliberate change on the part of the crew, and not an error. Producing a movie with "authentic" quality based on the equipment Hud is carrying would have produced a very poor result when projected onto hundred-foot screens, and incompatibilities in frame rate between a 30-frame-per-second recording and the 24-frames-per-second provided by movie projectors would have created a movie which was unusable to most theaters.
  • Movie Goof (incorrectly regarded as a mistake): From the time Hud first spots the monster in the helicopter to the time the helicopter crashes is less then a minute, yet the time changes from night to sunrise. However, the military man that told them of the helicopter told them that the last helicopters would be in the air by 6:00 am. The time from the crash to the time when the camera restarted recording is unknown, but it is possible that the sun began rising at that point. Even their visibility in the helicopter was getting much better and looked like the early dawn.
