    You see Cloverfield, you expect aliens. There were aliens.

    I don't know about this Season of the Witch though.

    By the way, let's talk about John Goodman here. I did like that he had a right balance of being absolutely insane, no matter what's going on outside, but you couldn't tell just how far gone he was. I thought he did a pretty damn good job. I've always thought he could be a good villain.

    I've always liked Winstead, but just seems like she's never gotten the role to set her apart.

    What was Carpenter's plan with SotW?
    It was supposed to be the start of turning the Halloween series into an anthology series.

    I was engaged, but it's...a bit awkward. [

    Howard feels not like a flesh and blood person, but a plot device. He's there to keep us guessing as to what's actually going on outside and if there's something going on.

    Man, what took me so long to watch this? Oh right, I wasn't a fan of Cloverfield back in the day... But this is something different and excellently done. Like someone said before, I loved that the movie was almost over and still packing genre reversals and surprises. And Goodman/Winstead might have been my favorite acting showdown of the year. I don't think I'd seen Goodman play a psychopath on this level before, which is weird given his physique and face.

    Finally watched this as well! Very good film and I don't have the same reservations/problems others here have posted about. Goodman was amazing! I liked Cloverfield and I don't see why this can't be in the same universe. Those aren't necessarily aliens, the vessel looked organic. The sphincter towards the end reminded me of what I saw in the original. I thought it was a bit ridiculous when she defeated that thing with a Molotov but after thinking about it more, if it was just some organic creature (and not an advanced alien) it makes more sense.
