For years, fans toiled to find a connection between 2008’s Cloverfield and 2016’s 10 Cloverfield Lane. Unfortunately, The Cloverfield Paradox, released earlier this year, came along and smashed most hypotheses to pieces with the reveal of an overarching phenomenon affecting multiple universes. In other words: The isn’t really a connection at all.

Still, many fans of the Cloverfield franchise sought a more concrete continuity. To that end, Greg Strasz directed a proof-of-concept/fan film that connects 2008’s Cloverfield and 2016’s 10 Cloverfield Lane in a tangible way. It’s called Megan, a clear allusion to the daughter of Howard Stambler (played by John Goodman), and sports some amazing special effects. Give it a spin below and let us know what you think in the Comments section.
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).
