I've read this on Serebii. From there, I've gotten the idea that it's a giant frog-looking monster with tentacles, that's it.

The Production Notes are online somewhere, I looked over them.

I didn't read it extremely thoroughly, but what I gathered is this.

OMFG SPOILERS D:





Apparently, this monster is a newborn. It rises from the sea and gets attacked by humans, it's scared, it starts destroying stuff. At one point, he scratches his back on a building, which destroys is, and also unleashes a lot of parasites. The parasites are apparently the size of a dog and eat humans.

Other than that I don't actually remember much.

I think it's just a normal giant powerful monster thing. It's just "mysterious" to build hype to crowd theaters. :3

From the commercials, it looks like some gigantic godzilla thing (@_@) and it says "something has found us", so obviously it is not genetically made...

Honestly though, through all the viral vids and repeated scenes and previews, etc., I feel like I pretty much know the entire movie. :P

It's not a bad ad campaign, but I'm not even planning on seeing it anymore. It feels like a lot of the suspense would be lost for me.

I just saw it today!
I LOVED it!

Of course, the film made people sick because of the constant motion of the supposed handheld camera. That's always a downside. But it looks so realistic and the way it's presented is brilliant and creative.

The special effects left me in awe, every time I caught a glimpse of that.. thing.. made myy jaw drop and eyes widen. I just couldn't help it!

It's not like other movies where you're watching people getting attacked - you're the one BEING attacked, and it's a hell of an effect!

New York is always targetted for the end of the world films because of the population, mass of sky scrapers, and the fact that it's right up there with London and Tokyo in forms of "popularity".

Hence "The Day After Tomorrow" x3

I really want to see this movie, though.

And yeah, you're right about that. Nothing can get as destructive as monster taking down skyscrapers. Doctor Who chose London for their end-of-the-world sences, though.

I'm not sure I get this post. What 'million questions' were left? If you're wondering about the origins of the monster, don't. There isn't some random scientist in this film who happens to be an expert on this creature who can and will tell the victims what's going on. I think that's part of the reason I liked it so much.

If you went to the movie expecting a lesson in monster biology, you went with the wrong frame of mind. This isn't one of those movies where you watch an alien pod crash onto Earth and observe a hideous beast emerge from a slimy sac. It's unexplained, which makes it terrifying. You're supposed to experience it as if you were there when it happened. That's why they use the POV they do. That's why you basically learn nothing except for what you can see.

ya fire away, i get it, i didnt know going into it that the whole movie was POV, otherwise i just wouldnt have gone. and the fact that you think the way they didnt explain the monsters background of how it got there, may leave something to the imagination that exictes terror in ones self but i think when you have more information than what was provided it makes it more interesting. and no, i didnt expect a lesson in monsterology thanks.

However, it's unfortunate that the monster looked like a cross between a praying mantis and the Michelin Man. =/

What happened to the girl that got bitten? Did she vomit blood, or explode, or what?

Where its from. What is is. What happens. Why a camera survives mass bombings. If you do the viral marketing, you know the main character was going to japan to work for Shlusho, a fake drink company, that drills for its main ingredient from the ocean, and I'm going to ASSUME its near Japan, since the company is based out of there, but it still attacks New York.

I just really don't think its a good movie. Its pretty much Final Fantasy X and the Blair Witch Project combined. It has some funny moments(although I'm not sure if you were supposed to laugh at some of the things I did), but overall, I wouldn't see it again.

Whatever. To each his own I guess.

And Megumi, pretty sure her head exploded

I saw this movie on Tuesday.

All I can say is what I posted on another forum:

Godzilla Snacks: The Movie

as in the story of the too slow victims who can't run to save their lives.

EDIT: As for the bitten girl from Macy's. There was a gunshot and a 'water balloon'.
