You can't hide. Visionary master of suspense J.J. Abrams produces this digital age, found footage reboot of the 1950's rampaging monster film. A Manhattan going-away party turns into a monster mash caught on camcorder when a mysterious Godzilla-like beastattacks New York and leaves a trail of destruction in its wake. While the creature tears apart the city, a small group of friends join the fray in scrambling for their lives. What is the monster? Where did it come from? Where do they run? How will they survive? The monster's sudden appearance keeps us focused on the here and the now in this portrait of New York gone mad.
