History[edit | edit source]
Origin[edit | edit source]
The Cloverfield Monsters are a species of extra-dimensional creatures that were brought to our universe through a malfunction of the Particle Accelerator in the Cloverfield Station orbiting Earth.
2008 Attack[edit | edit source]
In 2008 an infant member of this species was transported to a version of Earth because of the malfunction in the particle accelerator in 2028. This creature emerged from the Atlantic ocean destroying a drilling station before attacking New York.
2028 energy crisis[edit | edit source]
In another dimension in 2028, humans are running out of energy and on the brink of war. The crew of the international space station known as the "Cloverfield station" attempt to test a particle accelerator in an attempt to get unlimited renewable energy; however, the test goes wrong, causing multiple parallel dimensions to collide and Cloverfield Monsters from one of the dimension to attack ours. It is unknown how many of these monsters attacked Earth, but one adult-sized monster can be seen emerging from the clouds and roaring as the 2 surviving members of the space station return to Earth.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- In the 2008 film, the origins of the creature are purposely left unexplained, but J. J. Abrams claimed that it's not intended to be viewed as an alien, but as a creature from Earth.
- However, due to the presence of Aliens in 10 Cloverfield Lane. The chances of the Cloverfield monster being Alien in origin have greatly increased.
- The third film in the Cloverfield universe (The Cloverfield Paradox) explains the origin of the creatures as coming from another dimension. It is althogether possible that the events of this film are a separate universe than Cloverfield and 10 Cloverfield Lane, as the premise of the film revolves around a parallel universe.
