I figure that the “I Saw It! It’s Alive! It’s Huge!” and the “Clover Fun” featurettes are going to amount to mostly fluff, although the “Cloverfield Visual Effects” might be an interesting watch. I can’t imagine what the alternate endings would entail, but I came up with a few:
- The creature becomes friendly and complacent after the lead characters discover a thorn stuck in its foot and pull it out.
- Godzilla comes ashore and blows the Cloverfield monster’s head off.
- Same deal as above, but with Gamera.
- Four teenagers and their talking dog discover that the monster is nothing more than elaborate hoax designed to scare New Yorkers away so as to perpetrate a real estate scam.
