* DirectorDisplacement: No, Creator/JJAbrams '''did NOT''' direct ''Cloverfield''. That goes to Matt Reeves. Unfortunately since Abrams is associated with [[Series/{{Lost}} a]] [[Series/{{Fringe}} slew]] [[Series/{{Alias}} of]] [[Film/StarTrek friggin']] [[Film/{{Super 8}} projects]], Reeves is constantly not mentioned for directing the film.

** There's also the fact that babies have ''enormous'' appetites, and in between spooking and running away, Clover has to stop and feed. And he's surrounded by tasty little treats - us.

Added DiffLines:

** Director Matt Reeves would later direct ''Film/DawnOfThePlanetOfTheApes'', a film in a franchise that is, like ''Cloverfield'', arguably best known for a shot of a destroyed Statue of Liberty.

* UglyCute: Not gonna lie. Clovie and his ticks are pretty cute.
** Seriously though, look up Cloverfield on deviantArt, and see how many pictures people draw of chibi/baby Clovie.

* EpilepticTrees: * [[WMG/{{Cloverfield}} cough]]* , and those are only the tip of the iceberg. The AlternateRealityGame tied into the film lead to ''many'' more of them, most of which were {{Jossed}}.
* HypeBacklash: Mostly due to people being nauseous.

%%* JustHereForGodzilla* JustHereForGodzilla: Plenty of people went to the movie just to see what the monster looked like (as it was completely absent from the marketing).

* UnintentionallySympathetic: Keeping in mind that the monster is a baby looking for its mom makes watching this movie an entirely different experience.
** Kind of zig-zagged, actually; WordOfGod says that it is sort of a tragic figure, but the fact that it's a terrified baby is actually supposed to ''add'' to its scariness. As one of the people working on the film put it: "There is nothing scarier than a really big thing that's been spooked".

** [[Film/TenCloverfieldLane Not for long!]]
