Rotten Tomatoes gave Trachtenberg’s (sinister) directorial debut 10 Cloverfield Lane at 90% and there’s a reason: It’s. Really. Good. SO good you will probably have to go again this weekend with your friends to catch all the little things you may have missed. I haven’t been this unhinged for two solid hours straight since watching Donald Trump on SNL.
Or, anytime Donald speaks, really.
Without further adou, here’s my top ten reasons to go see this delicious fright fest.
*SPOILER ALERT – DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN IT AND PLAN TO!**
10) IT’S SCARY AF.
It really is. It’s the fun-kind-of-non-torture porn-watch-between-your-fingers-sort of scare.
9) J. J. ABRAMS IS ATTACHED WHICH = INSTANT CLASSIC, TBQH.
AKA GOD because he made this happen:
And more importantly this:
8) THIS SONG:
In a genius kind of way, they were able to make this Motown wonder seem chilly AF. Like in The Strangers when they turned this little indie club banger into a total nightmare:
7) THIS SONG TOO.
Because duh. And also because it created this:
6) THE ALIENS HAVE ZERO CHILL. *SORRY if you seriously are still reading, it’s your fault at this point*
5) THE TENSION WILL UNNERVE YOU.
It will have you guessing up until the very end.
4) DAN TRACHTENBERG IS AN AMAZING DIRECTOR.
Because he seriously is:
3) JOHN GALLAGHER JR. IS BAE
JGJ is a super cutie ESPECIALLY with his cast and southern charm.
2) MARY ELIZABETH WINSTEAD FOREVER
She is brilliant and you will root her all the way through the credits.
I smell a 2016 Oscar. SERIOUSLY. He’s terrifying.
