SDCC 08: Cloverfield Monster!

If you’re one of the few who have yet to see Cloverfield and managed to avoid all the images of the monster once the film was released, congratulations. I have no idea how one would do that. If you’ve read this far, chances are you’re neither, so just move your eyeballs down a bit to check out some new pics of the monster fresh from the floor of Comic Con!

Cloverfield monster! Cloverfield monster! Cloverfield monster!

    I really liked the flick and I haven’t really seen the full monster till now and as much as i like the movie and liked the monster in it…I have to wonder how someone decides to make the monster look like this…

    • Tsotha-lanti

      Simple: They tried a bit too hard to make their monster distinctive.

        I think you are on the money there. But didn’t someone involved say they did a lot of research in trying to make the creature biologically sound for it’s environment-like what would a deep sea monster creature that could live on land really look like? Which would be confusing if it fell from space like some think.

        • Tsotha-lanti

          Everything I’ve read suggests that the monster is indeed an alien who’s been hibernating underneath the ocean, much like Cthulhu, so I think by making it “sound for its environment” they meant less having it make sense biologically than look like something from another planet. (hence the reverse-jointed knees on the front legs)

            Also, $100 is too much for an action figure, size be damned.

            There’s also the idea that what fell from the sky isn’t what came out of the ocean. ;)
