Movie Review- Cloverfield Godzilla meets Blair Witch in this thriller, directed by Matt Reeves. It’s not actually Godzilla, but from the few scenes where we actually get to see the monster, it looked close enough.

Rob (Michael Stahl-David) is the lead character who is about to leave for a job in Japan. He comes home to a farewell surprise party thrown by his best friend Hud (T.J Miller). Hud has the camera, and tapes people saying goodbye to rob, including Lily (Jessica Lucas) and Jason (Mike Vogel), two of Rob’s good friends.
