French Student Film Mimics Cloverfield

by Dan Koelsch

Go to YouTube. Search for “Cloverfield”. Watch all the crappy amateur videos that try desperately to imitate the 2008 hit film. With its handheld camera style and unique intensity, J.J. Abrams’ Cloverfield brought a great new spin to the monster movie. Given its style, many have tried to replicate its creative success (read: Quarantine), but few have succeeded. Now, a few french students have made a short film that tries to do just that. Check it out after the break.

The film, called Amock, was made by Francois Vico, Martin Vaissie, Sarah Matuszak, and Xavier Goubin. While it is in French and has English subtitles (which I usually hate), it’s still worth a look.





The official website has more information and behind-the-scenes videos, including an alternate (and more explanatory) ending, seen below.





You can definitely see the influence of Cloverfield, though I find the film entertaining and very effective. I even got a little scared at their one camera attack scene. What did you think of the short movie?
