Using the power of Reason, I have deduced what the monster in Cloverfield is

cloverfieldposter.jpgSo the movie Cloverfield's going to be released in a few days, and as of right now, no-one seems to know anything about it yet. If you haven't heard about the film, or seen the ads or trailers for it yet, I'll explain. The trailers depict a monster of some sort apparently attacking New York, while a group of friends with attractive facial features run in terror. However, the monster isn't identifiable in the trailers, and scant other information has been revealed about the plot yet. This is a lot more remarkable than you might first suspect.
