Giant Monster Movie!!!

Jun. 21, 2007by: Eric Walkuski

Well, if this is indeed something that is happening - then you might as well buy me a ticket and a new pair of boxer shorts, because I'm already sold on this bizarre new epic.

According to AintItCoolNews, J.J. Abrams, co-creator of ALIAS and LOST, is working on some kind of BLAIR WITCH meets GODZILLA mash-up called CLOVERFIELD (hate the title, but dont understand it yet either).

Heres what Moriarty over there at AICN has to say regarding this wild sounding project: ...what makes this different than any other giant monster movie? Well, as I understand it, most of the film is going to be shot using home video cameras, as if from the point of view of real people who are experiencing an attack on New York. Its designed as a fairly small picture, all things considered, and right now, theyre working to make sure the script is going to deliver some wild thrills (like an earthquake that levels Manhattan or an oil tanker flipping over by the Statue of Liberty), but that its not suddenly going to turn into a giant $150 million movie. Its a tricky balance, and if they pull off everything theyre trying to do, CLOVERFIELD could be something really groovy. Not a man in suit in sight.

How freakin cool is that? Sure, Abrams could blow millions of bucks on another GODZILLA rehash, but taking this low-budgetish approach (although Im sure itll still cost a pretty penny), is definitely unique for the genre - and a great way to make the flick more realistic, and therefor more frightening.

What baffles me is this shocker, also from AICN: "were going to see a trailer for it very soon thats been designed and shot even as we speak. Im not sure if its going to be attached to TRANSFORMERS or if well see it later in the summer, but its definitely coming soon. And the end of it should feature one of those iconic images that makes people talk about a trailer for months."

How in the hell Abrams and co. managed to keep this thing a secret for so long, I have no idea - especially in this day and age, when its our job to sniff out films that dare to be such things as secretive and mysterious. Its the internet age, you bastards, were supposed to have everything spoiled for us!! (actually kidding, I love that its been under wraps.) Has anyone else heard anything about this, my favorite new movie? Don't hesitate to share, ya greedy bastards!

It's doubtful anything JJ directs will ever top this masterful moment. Bravo!

Movies like this rarely work. I didn't enjoy Blair Witch all that much, but it's pretty much the only one that works. I'd rather just have an awesome monster movie with awesome monsters.
