When the door opens, and the man known as Howard explained that he will be alive, before providing her the set of crutches to assist her in walking and unchaining her just before locking when closing her up. Michelle carved the final of crutch to a hard point and attracts Howard return to the door to attempt in attacking him, but he is conscious of her attack and then stops it. Howard told her that there were massive attack by entities and everybody else was dead, and it may be impossible to depart from bunker as the chemical or the nuclear fallout that might kill them.

During the initial dinner together, Michelle took Howard’s keys to a mark, but when she was about to unlock it, a lady suffered from a serious skin lesions abruptly came from outside, pleading to allow to get before she falls dead. Michelle understands Howard was right and gave back the keys. Howard admitted that he had beat Michelle’s auto in his alarm, to get to his trench and get her in.
The Writers’ View:
The real star of the movie is John Goodman, however, in one of his best performances in a later year, Goodman maintain the viewer’s eyes glued on the screen and will makes you totally engaged throughout. Cloverfield’s performance was not really that great – it was rather regular in all honesty, but the movie takes something else. Goodman takes on a total powerhouse of the performance, and every cast were brilliant and strong as well.
