Cloverfield monster secret revealed
It looks like I was right way back in November when I wrote about some of the Cloverfield footage and pictures that made it seem as though people were being contaminated with something from the monster, and now the latest clip for the film builds on my idea and reveals even more.
Here's the evidence in the footage we've seen so far.
We first saw a still that showed a woman being held by men in contamination suits, her eyes and nose bleeding as though she carried some form of disease and that it was infectious, later the first look at the high quality trailer revealed someone being held by two people in contamination suits behind a big screen, their body erupting, almost exploding.
Now that last clip looked like it could have been exploding or perhaps breaking apart in Alien style as a new creature emerged. Who knows, we only saw enough to see the body expanding rapidly and some screaming. Couple that with the bleeding eyes and ears and it looks like humans are being infected in some way.
The latest clip from Cloverfield below suggests that this could be conveyed through the bite of the creature. During this new trailer there's a shot of what looks like the same area as we saw the people in contamination suits and the previous footage, some kind of makeshift hospital or containment area.
At one point you hear the scream "Bite, we've got a bite", then there's a shot of a woman with blood coming from her eye looking around in a daze, then we cut to that same scene I first spotted in November where someone being held by people in containment suits expands suddenly and there's screaming.
The clip comes from YouTube through HorrorMovies.
What do you think? I thought it was a strong idea back then, but now I'm convinced that the creature (or perhaps those smaller creatures) do infect humans and that causes them to either simply explode or the creatures actually infect humans with another creature which, like in Alien, grows inside of them, until...
I'm not entirely sure which, but from the new footage it's pretty clear that everyone is scared of what happens when someone is infected, they obviously become dangerous or infectious themselves.
