NEW RELEASE DVD RECOMMENDATION - 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE

SUMMARY: After getting in a car accident, a woman is held in a shelter with two men, who claim the outside world is affected by a widespread chemical attack. —IMDB

MY REVIEW: 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE is a brilliant, edge of the seat drama/mystery/sci-fi movie. The acting is great with John Goodman putting in one of the best performances I have seen from him ever. The story is very clever with lots of twists. It is tense and unpredictable with the suspense coming from what is going on psychologically rather than from special effects or cliched tricks - this is an original, intelligent, smart movie. There are touches of humour here and there but it is mostly an intense piece of psychodrama. The soundtrack is spot on and sparingly complements the story. The action is believable and avoids sensationalist CGI. The special effects and cinematography are great and the suspense is situational rather than contrived. This is a deeply satisfying movie - I loved it!
