10 Cloverfield Lane
I never saw 'Cloverfield' (2008) and I gather that '10 Cloverfield Lane' is not a sequel to the earlier but rather exists in some type of 'similar universe'.
John Goodman is keeping a young woman imprisoned in his specially designed underground bunker for her 'protection' because of some undefined catastrophe that has killed off life on earth and left behind a toxic atmosphere.
As B-grade horror movies go this is of superior quality and should best be viewed on a stormy or wintery evening not as I did on a gorgeously sunny day when I should have been out and about. It does go a bit loopy in the final fifteen or so minutes and has an open ending tailor made for a sequel.
