Vampires, monsters and clones are invading your DVD collection. Let them in! You won't regret it!
It's not really fair to compare Monsters to Cloverfield. True, both follow young people as they travel through a war zone to reunite with loved ones, while a battle is being fought between the military and a giant monster who remains largely unseen until halfway through the movie. But that's where the comparisons end. While Cloverfield is captured on shaky, hand-held cameras in one of the biggest cities in the world, Monsters is a mostly uneventful trip through the jungles of Mexico, and the main character, a photographer, is more interested in the quiet moments than in seeing any action. While not without its action scenes, the movie is actually mostly quiet moments, and the depiction of a country ravaged by these creatures is more important than the creatures themselves.
