Secret hidden in Cloverfield ending
It seems that there's a little secret hidden in the ending of Cloverfield, and one which the Director Matt Reeves doesn't want to give away, well not just now anyway. He wants people to solve it for themselves.
Now, I have to say this isn't really spoiler material because it isn't saying "the ending is this", however if you did know it and watched the film, I am guessing that you would realise what's going to happen perhaps a scene or two before it does.
In an interview online he's posed a question about the final scene of the film, here's the question:
"So, at the end of the film, after the credits, a walkie-talkie crackles to life and you hear... something. What is it?"
Oooh, typical film trick really, but a good one. You can almost imagine the ending already, and actually I wrote about that ages ago when the call sheet was revealed online and suggested that the remaining characters were sitting under a structure for shelter.
Here's what Matt Reeves says in response:
"Yes, you do hear something! That's another sort of radio chatter moment. I don't actually want to give that away at this point, because it is decipherable. That's the very last thing we did on the mix, I sort of jumped up to the microphone and did this thing. I know someone will figure it out, but I don't want to give it away yet."
The fuller interview is over at io9, although there's nothing else spoilerish in it as he talks about how they came up with the idea, and how he was given the job, and so on.
Right, come on Cloverfield fans, get your thinking caps on. If you're going to see the film then get yourselves working on what that message is on the walkie talkie at the ending of the film.
Has anyone deciphered it already?
