More Info:
  • Drew McWeeny

    Economically told from the start, the film moves beautifully.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Bill Zwecker

    This is a terrific movie that will keep audiences gripping their seats from start to finish, and a great deal of that is due to the magnificent acting jobs by Goodman, Winstead and co-star John Gallagher Jr.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Jeannette Catsoulis

    Sneakily tweaking our fears of terrorism, 10 Cloverfield Lane, though no more than a kissing cousin to its namesake, is smartly chilling and finally spectacular.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Allison Shoemaker

    Approach 10 Cloverfield Lane on its own terms, let Trachtenberg and his top-notch cast (Mary Elizabeth Winstead, John Gallagher Jr., and a ferocious John Goodman) yank you into their world, and try not to sweat through your clothes.

    Consequence of Sound Full Review
  • Kate Erbland

    Filled with considerable dread and mystery, 10 Cloverfield Lane functions just fine as a standalone genre title. But as a spiritual sequel to the original, it builds out the so-called "Cloververse" far better than could be expected from even the most straightforward of tales.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    The tension is rooted in psychology rather than gimmickry, and evinces a command of craft that feels old-fashioned in the most refreshing possible sense.

    Variety Full Review
  • Barry Hertz

    This is a near-masterpiece, an intimate and nerve-wracking shocker that deserves as big an audience as the mystery box can conjure.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    10 Cloverfield Lane comes loaded with everything a psychological thriller needs to shatter your nerves — and then kicks it up a notch.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Bryan Bishop

    The film barrels through a variety of emotional colors: scares, laughs, moments of emotional vulnerability, and it’s a testament to director Dan Trachtenberg that the pieces fit so seamlessly together.

    The Verge Full Review
  • Hal Lipper

    10 Cloverfield Lane superbly shuffles what we know (and don't) and what the characters are experiencing.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    10 Cloverfield not an outright Cloverfield sequel but rather, as Abrams has put it, a “spiritual successor.” It’s also a better movie, one with a sense of humor about itself and its genre.

    Time Full Review
  • Ethan Sacks

    Tractenberg, evidently a fan of lingering close-ups, lets the audience marinate in a claustrophobic vibe.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Jonathan Pile

    Abrams’ you-didn’t-see-this-coming announcement was an effective piece of theatre, which the film itself ably lives up to. A thriller that winds you tighter and tighter before its secrets come tumbling out in a cathartic finale.

    Empire Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    All three actors are tremendous, and director Dan Trachtenberg, making his feature debut, must be commended for keeping things tightly focused.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Jamie Graham

    As unnerving as it is surprising.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    Most of the film takes place in this vacuum-packed, Sartrean hell of other people, which Trachtenberg, his cast, writers and crew evoke with chest-tightening efficiency. Every sound and line rings with a tight, tinny echo; every room is felt out to its corners; every knick-knack drily noted.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    Mary Elizabeth Winstead and John Goodman make for fine sparring partners and the film has enough low-key, slow-burn suspense to keep the simplicity of the premise humming along.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Justin Lowe

    The final third shifts into high-adrenaline action mode with some thrilling set pieces as Michelle faces unexpected new threats, making the paradoxical conclusion satisfying on multiple levels as it delivers on the thriller setup while introducing surprising new developments.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The problems with 10 Cloverfield Lane result from attempts to tie it, however tenuously, to the earlier movie. Take away the disappointing, disjointed, and anti-climactic final act, and this is an effective white-knuckle psychological thriller.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    A real nail-biter of a monster movie. The question is: Who’s the monster?

    New York Post Full Review
  • Brian Truitt

    A well-crafted affair by debuting director Dan Trachtenberg that mixes elements of an intimate stage play with the white-knuckled tension of a cracking good Twilight Zone episode.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    It's best to approach this crafty, intriguing offshoot as its own thing. And this time you actually notice the people.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    It’s like an amusement park ride that drags inexplicably for the last hundred feet – but until then, it’s a joltingly fine journey.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Daniel Schindel

    10 Cloverfield Lane is a fun one-location, three-person play, and each new twist it takes only makes it more exciting.

    The Film Stage Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    The filmmaking, by first-time feature director Dan Trachtenberg, is suitably claustrophobic and suspenseful, working up to a level of stress that may be unhealthy for anyone with a weak heart.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    There’s a fine, nerve-jangling little psychological thriller here. Pity it couldn’t have been allowed to just be that.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Wickedly clever nightmare entertainment.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Brian Tallerico

    A tight, tense thriller carried by excellent performances from John Goodman and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    At one point, this movie had me so on edge that I had a fleeting impulse to run out of the theater. It might be weird to say that and mean it as a compliment, but good thrillers work that way sometimes.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Kevin Jagernauth

    It’s [Trachtenberg's] measured hand with tone that's really noteworthy, never over-reaching with each twist of the plot, keeping the tension on a simmer, and even when things boil over, “10 Cloverfield Lane” gets feverishly exciting but not hysterical.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    For a rookie director, Trachtenberg appears to be a real craftsman, even if what he’s crafting doesn’t add up to as much as you hope it will.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    10 Cloverfield Lane does what it needs to do: make you sit and squirm and want very badly to know. It has the appeal of suspense radio plays from the '30s and '40s and even a touch of Orson Welles’s most infamous Mercury Theater broadcast.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Mark Olsen

    It is designed to be fun, efficient and accessible and delivers precisely and exactly on that and nothing more.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Erin Whitney

    Its sheer over-the-top excess and lack of taking itself too seriously allow it to become a delightful, exhilarating concoction of its many pieces, and much more accessible and entertaining than the dizzying cinéma vérité of its parent movie.

    ScreenCrush Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    As a gamelike, simulationist PG-13 horror chamber piece, 10 Cloverfield Lane is a success: well shot and -staged, arrestingly acted, edited with a crisp unpredictability. It's less compelling in terms of character and meaning.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    Even if this material might have been better served as a 40-minute short than as a full-length movie, first-time feature director Dan Trachtenberg has cast a trio of actors at the top of their game, and they elevate the material.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    10 Cloverfield Lane is a cinematic puzzle box that rewards your patience with three standout performances; a memorable, nerve-jangling score by composer Bear McCreary; and an escalating sense of disorienting confusion.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Dark, nasty fun that gets better when you play it over in your head. But the plot holes seem even larger in hindsight, too. Just tamp down those expectations, then tamp them down some more.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    Basically, it’s an electrifying three-person play, as the determined Winstead, the complexly furious Goodman and Tony-winner John Gallagher Jr. (playing a lucky neighbor who made his way down) have it out in scenes that impart the nauseating futility of George Romero’s mall-ensconced "Dawn of the Dead."

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Trachtenberg is patient building this world, and the actors do a good job inhabiting it. Winstead is a terrific actress, and she makes Michelle's desperation and inventiveness believable. Goodman is never better than when playing a nut, and while we aren't sure if that's what he's doing here, the possibility makes for an intriguing portrayal.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Chuck Bowen

    The legacy of Syd Fields's screenwriting manual hangs over 10 Cloverfield Lane, as it does all of Abrams's productions, which never even accidentally casts a whiff of subtext or authorial personality.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    10 Cloverfield Lane is built on the fear of an unknown that we know. Turns out, all that secrecy and hype and branding the “Cloverfield” name were not just this product’s marketing strategy. That’s all they had. Period...So, “Room” is still in theaters. It’s more harrowing, more terrifying, more thrilling and moving than Cloverfield Lane could ever hope to be. Go see that instead.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Soren Andersen

    Board games, threats from Howard and desperate escape planning by Michelle take up most the picture. And then, first-time feature director Dan Trachtenberg and the screenwriters, apparently realizing that not much has been going on so far, ramp up to a full-bore CG explosion extravaganza finale...Too little. Too late.
