Cloverfield Theory: "Slusho Is People?"

Brad at 1-18-08 News claims a reliable source deep within the JJ Abrams 'Cloverfield' project has sent him news on the movie that details what the monster is and where it is from.

Brad also posted some new posters he claims are from the movie (more here) that show a buried hand of a statue and a shadow of the monster over the city. I'm not gonna lie to you and say I believe these posters to be real. Just looking at the first one with the hand I can see 1/2 dozen inconsistencies.

I'm not sure what statue that hand is supposed to be of but it doesn't match Lady Liberty. Her left hand looks like this (notice no thumb) and the right hand, which the poster shows, in reality is nowhere near a match for this pose. Although I do not live in New York City (been there- great town!) I'm also not aware of any other large green statue.

Also, the city skyline is messed up. You can see where they took the image from the 'Cloverfield' poster and put it in front of another NYC skyline. They even left the helicopters in! Heck, the shadows don't even match.

I'll let you have fun with the other 2 posters. Now, watch his video he put up today about a secret source from the set of the 'Cloverfield' movie and the clues he's been given.

What is Cloverfield theories

He states he has found the complete answer to the clues of 'Cloverfield' but still uses the posters as part of the basis for this theory. Well, I enjoy Brad's site because he's having fun, like me, trying to work this mystery so I won't bust his balls on the poster thing. While I don't agree with his theories all the time he does a good job investigating the 'Cloverfield' movie.

Picture of the Cloverfield Monster from the trailer?

My quick analysis is as follows:

  1. The posters are fake

  2. I don't see a face in the fireball just like there's no face on Mars

  3. The monster is an alien goes against the 'Monster' movie theme and enters too much into Sci-Fi. I firmly believe the monster will be of Earth origins.

  4. Slusho and its deep sea ingredient is the key to the monster. Probably made from a food the monster needs or from the monster itself. Either way, harvesting the Slusho ingredient has pissed off the sea monster.

  5. I like that consuming the Slusho makes the person a marked person to the monster.

  6. The fireball from the Statue of Liberty is the monster rising through the bedrock and breaking gas lines and such makes sense. A fire breathing dragon/monster is a little too 'Godzilla' for my likes.

Pay attention also to the logo at the top of the second link page and the sculpture in the poster... looks almost the same.

The posters have already been branded fakes and have been taken down. Several people emailed me, asked me to look at it, post it on the site to see what everyone thought. At the time they looked real to me, but it was proven that they were fake.

My apologies for any misguidance these posters may have caused, but then again, that's why these fan sites are here so we can decypher what's real and what's not in comparison to the movie.

I really think slusho is the key cos if you go to the slusho website and read the history, the mother disappears and it says about become a little whale too(referring to exploding woman)

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.

T.I.D.O wave An activist group set out to bring to light all the damage Tagruato has done to the envirnoment.
