1-18-08 - New Cloverfield Theories. Slusho and Cloverfield Monster Explained.

This week's episode of 'INSIDER INFORMATION' , in which mild mannered contestants pose as industrial moles and enjoy giving movie secrets, comes from mysterious John Murphy who likes to post on forums at SteakNBJ.com.

What's Cloverfield found this little tidbit of information in a post from John Murphy, who just happens to have the storyline from the first 1/3 of the movie. As usual, John is going out on a limb and having to mask his identity and computer trail to give us this information, so the least we can do is lend him an ear.

So, here's John's story. I'll post it below but be warned (in case he's telling the truth) that it contains SPOILERS!!!

John Murphy writes: (Possible Spoilers Below!! Last Warning!)

"Here is the first third of the film…About one billion (yes billion) years ago, life on Earth was still at the multi-cell level and they remained mostly in their habitat. One of the organisms was more passive and preferred a symbiotic relationship for their survival.

Another (and there were more) was more aggressive and preferred to control larger beings for their survival. Back then, the world had only one continent. The two organisms were separated, for the most part, by land.

But the aggressive organism had developed a taste for the passive one and tried to feed on it as often as possible by going around the land mass. Until a cataclysmic event changed things, burying most of the ancient organisms under the oceans. The surviving organisms either died off or evolved (later becoming humans and what not).

Fast forward to present day and we have Japan discovering the passive organisms buried off their coast and eventually came to the conclusion that the American continents (North and South) had drifted over the aggressive organisms (more on them later) during the past billion years.

Japanese scientists begin studying this passive organism and find that it is a perfect nourishment supplement to humans. Grown in an agricultural field on the island of Hokkaido, Japan, these organisms create the appearance of cloverfields. The scientists learn that these organisms are beneficial symbiotic parasites that give us additional nourishment and make us feel happy. Thus humans and the parasites become one.

They are kept cold to prevent them from dying from exposure until they are introduced into their host. Thus the development of the awesome and delicious drink – Slusho! (It makes me happy).

Rob is a college graduate who has been hired by Slusho and has just accepted an offer to work in their technologies division in Japan. Rob also knows the basics of the organism, the story that Slusho “invented” as a marketing campaign and has recently been informed that the scientists have found trace amounts of the aggressive organism.

This aggressive organism likes to pool up into a larger being, control it, own it, even change it. It also eats the smaller passive organism much the same way a whale will eat plankton. Slusho is now one of the most popular drinks. In it’s own right it is a tasty meal that does not add fat and is proven to be healthy with claims that it cures cancer and many other diseases.

Slusho and it’s by-products are now being flushed (literally) into the sewer systems and drained out to sea by way of urine, fecal matter and just straight unconsumed Slusho. This builds up on the ocean floor and eventually awakens a very hungry and aggressive organism.

This aggressive organism, hungry and well, aggressive, follows the sewer trail back to New York and emerges through the sewers breaking and igniting a natural gas pipeline in it’s effort to feed on the passive organism, which is now us."

What I like about Murphy's theory is how he's tied in all the clues, like Slusho (is people), Rob, and the Monster into one easy idea. It beats a lot of other theories I've seen in the last few weeks and it does work in the idea of "Parasite," which was originally what the monster was referred to in small forums.

No matter what the monster or belief behind it turns out to be, if we over think the whole thing we'll all be disappointed. I have never seen someone post on a forum with 'inside' information to be accurate so I'll leave that up to chance. Besides, Murphy doesn't really bring new material to the table. He just pieced together the information that's already out there. However, maybe it's just that simple...

i think ur completely wrong. towards the end of the movie after the bridge they hide under collapses, u go back to the original video when rob is on the beach ride, as the camera is panned on the sea, u think its a pretty view but just before the camera turns to beth u see something in the distance towards the right of the screen land into the sea.check it out again , i think this thing is alien.

I think Murphys theory is interesting but I have my own. I believe the whole slusho thing is tied in with the japanese government. I think the japanese were working on a top secret project to create a weapon. They wanted to create an indestructible being that only they can stop since they created it. They create this weapon or creature near the bottom of the ocean and feed the slusho ingredient to help it grow and become stronger. They monitor it's growth and also create the smaller spider creatures as a ground troop unit. They create this monster with the intention to bring down america, a sort of revenge for WW II. When they finally decide to release the creature they put it's container into a rocket, launch it into space and set it to release over New York. In the last scene of the film you see something splash into the ocean (the monster). It takes about a month for the creature to reach Manhattan and all hell breaks loose. It's my little theory I thought it sounded preety good. I think for the sequel they should show the how the japanese scientists created it. Face it the japanese have the technology the scientists and the drive to do something like that.

i agree with number 1 here....you see something fall into the ocean..its obviously alien....unless the creature made a huge dolphin dive a mile into the sky..

the comet doesnt change much about the theory, it could have simply hit in the seabed tearing open the source for either the monster or the slusho fields

why would it take a month for the monster to travel from coney island (wich is whare rob and beth are) to get to manhattan, which if you look on google maps is not far away. any way jj abrahams might bring out a sequel wich may tell more about the monster, its origin and other stuff.

What is Cloverfield?

Welcome to 1-18-08 Project Cloverfield Blog.

Cloverfield is the J.J. Abrams (Lost, Alias) produced monster flick directed by Matt Reeves. Get caught up on all the Cloverfield news including the viral world of Tagruato, TIDOwave, and Slusho!? And now Aladygma?

However, I love viral campaigns. Cloverfield taught me the fun of being involved with the viral world of movies and TV. That's why I'd like to branch out this site to cover some of the major viral campaigns as they are developing. Feel free to drop me a line or tip on any you find interesting.

Welcome to Cloverfield

Very few facts emerged from the viral campaign that was Cloverfield. It all started after a short, teaser trailer for Cloverfield appeared with the Transformers movie in early July of 2007. Since then, speculation surrounded what the title of the movie would be (Monstrous, Overnight, etc...) and what the monster really is and why it is tearing up New York City.

A few pictures and covert videos from the film showed up online and there were only a few core facts we knew of including the poster, the teaser trailer, and a few websites at 1-18-08, Tagruato Corp, and Slusho .

In November, the official full-length Cloverfield trailer was released that helped open up the story as well as cement the "Cloverfield" name for the movie. A short glimpse of the Cloverfield Monster was seen but for most people they still had little or no clue as to what it was.

The movie centered around five young New Yorkers throwing their friend a going-away party the night that a monster the size of a skyscraper descends upon the city. Told from the point of view of their video camera, the film is a document of their attempt to survive the most surreal, horrifying event of their lives. Cloverfield opened the weekend of 1-18-08 and set box office records for a movie in January with a monster take of over $40M.

Slusho This is the Japanese frozen drink made from a secret ingredient gathered from the bottom of the ocean. Slusho gives you a kick and makes you extremely happy. Prior to 1-18-08 Slusho was not sold in the US. However, recent FDA approval gave Slusho clearance to come to the states. Rob Hawkins, the lead character, was recently promoted to vice-president of Slusho and was on his way to Japan the night of the attack. Slusho is owned by the Tagruato Corp. of Japan. Slusho also first made an appearance on J.J. Abrams Alias during a scene where characters buy the drink at a store.

Tagruato This ficticious Japanese company is the parent company of Slusho as well as the Yoshida Medical Research, Bold Futura, and ParafFUN! Wax Distributors. Besides drilling the oceans for Slusho ingredients, Tagruato builds everything from space satellites to medical gear.
