Cloverfield (2008)

The handheld camerawork adds a unique realism to the usual monster movie proceedings, but it’s honestly really difficult to watch without getting a headache, especially during the first 20 minutes pre-monster (the ironic “good day” bookends are a nice touch though). Still, good acting (even if the characters are kind of annoying), solid suspense (the gradual monster reveal throughout is nicely done; the reveal in the tunnel absolutely terrifying) and good VFX make this worth sticking out.
