In Cloverfield five young New Yorkers throw their friend a going-away party the night that a monster the size of a skyscraper descends upon the city. Told from the point of view of their video camera, the film is a document of their attempt to survive the most surreal, horrifying event of their lives. Michael Stahl-David, Mike Vogel, Odette Yustman and Lizzy Caplan star.
