Cloverfield, the 2000 Edition

I really enjoyed Cloverfield. There were, of course, things that bugged me--like, starting out the movie with, "Oh, I don't know how to use cameras very well" so they can get away with their film style... cop-out--but by the time the film ended I was satisfied.

[Aside: The same could not be said for The Happening which did nothing for me at all and consisted of acting on par with 10,000 BC, only without Camilla Belle to make up for it.]

But I just realized that Cloverfield was a remake of a 2000 music video, only they just added monsters this time. That's right, Cloverfield looks and feels just like Eve 6's Here's to the Night. Don't believe me? Watch the music video.

See? Deja vu.

Almost as creepy as the monster. Almost...
