And back to those new-fangled Cable TV Shows, the likes of AMERICAN HORROR STORY, the aforementioned WAYWARD PINES and oh so many others: CLOVERFIELD, being less than two-hours and with an ambiguous ending, proves that the small screen evokes a much better medium for something not only similar to MISERY, but mirroring two shows that were around before LOST took over prime time: those being TWIN PEAKS and especially X-FILES, the latter which a CLOVERFIELD sequel, if this sparks enough box office cash this weekend, will have to be more like, since Kathy Bates is no longer living... On the other hand, her character's doppelganger, Goodman. may have just rented the farm in this case, so a follow-up can go in many different avenues within some familiar lanes and faces.
TRIVIA: Before John Goodman even had an actual role as a cop in the low-budget horror flick C.H.U.D. during the early eighties, he provided an extremely quick cameo as a survivalist salesman in THE SURVIVORS starring Robin Williams, Walter Matthau and Jerry Reed.
