What is 10 Cloverfield Lane

Well, technically, it's not a sequel to 2008's Cloverfield (also produced by hitmaker J.J. Abrams). This new thriller has a different story and style, but connective tissue exists between the two projects.

With its exquisite tension, deliberate pacing and strong performances from stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead and the masterful John Goodman, 10 Cloverfield Lane is a perfect example of how withholding information can make for an engaging thrill ride, says CBC's Eli Glasner.

RATING: 4 out of 5 stars
