I can’t believe it’s been almost nine years since this movie came out! I’d forgotten how good it’s overture, only played during the film’s credits, was. Many thematic tributes to Godzilla and Daikaiju film scores, as is fitting for a found-footage film about a giant monster attacking NYC.

The stark lack of a score in the film itself I always thought added to its tension. If you’re unfamiliar with Cloverfield, it’s worth checking out. Here is the original trailer.
