Added DiffLines:

* AttentionDeficitOhShiny: The ''camera''. The monster almost never appears in full field of view or for very long because the camera is always panning away for some reason or another. Or no reason at all.

* {{Jerkass}}: While Hud is crying over the fact that [[spoiler:Marlena just exploded in front of him]], Rob runs up to him and basically tells him to suck it up so they can go rescue his girlfriend.

Added DiffLines:

* PostNineElevenTerrorismMovie: The 9/11 imagery is all over the place during the monster's attack. At one point a party goer questions if an explosion that happened downtown is the work of terrorists.


Added DiffLines:

** ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' can be seen on a TV


Added DiffLines:

* SinisterSubway: [[spoiler:The protagonists are attacked by the tick monsters in an abandoned subway. Prior to this, Hud mentions a story he heard about a person who would light homeless people on fire in the subway; the rest of the characters understandably tell him to shut up.]]

* GoshDarnItToHeck: Subverted. Every utterance of "Oh my god!" this movie would easily be "fuck" in a real-life situation, and the only reason it isn't is because it would've lost the movie it's PG-13 rating.

* FakeRealTurn: Meta-example: a lot of the posters for ''Film/EscapeFromNewYork'' showed the decapitated head of the Statue of Liberty lying in the street, an amazing shot which ''[[CoversAlwaysLie never actually appears in the movie itself]]''. ''This'' movie's poster, on the other hand, isn't lying; all these years later, ''Cloverfield'' finally delivers on the other movie poster's broken promise.

* GoshDarnItToHeck: Subverted. "Oh my god!" seems to be the characters' favorite exclamation, but let's be real: in that situation, nobody would be adverse to [[ClusterFBomb exclaiming "fuck" just as many times]] had this movie not been rated PG-13.
