It’s been just over a week since the Cloverfield fan film Megan took the world by storm. Greg Strasz directed a proof-of-concept/fan film that connects 2008’s Cloverfield and 2016’s 10 Cloverfield Lane in a tangible way. The titular Megan is a clear allusion to the daughter of Howard Stambler (played by John Goodman), and sports some amazing special effects. If you missed Megan when we first ran it, give it a spin below.
MEGAN is a proof of concept that can be best described as a tribute to Bad Robot’s Cloverfield Universe, considering much inspiration was taken from Cloverfield (2008) and 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016), as well as the franchise’s websites, mangas, marketing campaigns and the online ARG (alternate reality game).

The Cloverfield Franchise has had my, and many others, attention for the past few years. With brilliant films such as Cloverfield, and 10 Cloverfield Lane. However, after The Cloverfield Paradox was released it left many with mixed feelings. But now, after receiving an email from a man called, Giuseppe Mercadante, asking to take a look at his Cloverfield Short Film. It’s helped me realize just how much potential the Cloverfield universe still has. As I explore what he has sent and told me about his Cloverfield short film. I’ve got the impression this could become more than just a “Fan” film providing it gets the right amount of attention.
