10 Cloverfield Lane wasn't originally supposed to be a Cloverfield movie, it was shot under a different name. So if, like the rest of the world, you found Cloverfield to have a pretty short shelf life (and I'm having a hard time thinking of a major 2005-10 horror movie that will age more poorly than that one) don't worry, this movie has little to do with that one. It also contains the best John Goodman performance outside of Lebowski.
I think the commentary track on the DVD for Scream has them admitting the garage door scene isn't terribly realistic, like it couldn't support her weight or something like that. I thought the shot of her head being squished looked like a Halloween mask being squashed, though at least it's a more creative death than we'd get from the sequels.
Here's a creepy pic of the dead Drew Barrymore doll from the beginning of the movie. Which, by the way, is supposed to look like a girl who falls through a ceiling and gets lynched in Suspiria.
