Audiences of Cloverfield are literally being made sick by the movie.
“Cloverfield” is the first adrenaline-pumping monster hit of the year, bringing in more than $40 million dollars on its opening weekend. The thriller is told from the point of view of five young New Yorkers using their handheld camera. But for some viewers, being “part” of the movie is making them sick — literally.
Theaters showing “Cloverfield” are posting warnings of possible motion sickness.
One blogger on the popular movie database IMDB.com said, “I had to get up and leave the theater for nearly 20 minutes just to keep from hurling.” Other moviegoers have reported being nauseated and dizzy.
And here I thought they were just sick from yet another dumbass CGI flick in which Manhattan gets trashed. Yaaaawn.
