PG-13 | | Action, Horror, Sci-Fi
A group of friends venture deep into the streets of New York on a rescue mission during a rampaging monster attack.
Eric Leven - the visual effects supervisor - refers to the monster as "Clover".
It's 6:42 AM. Beth's dad's place. He's out of town. And it's already a good day.
Coming through the Narrows from Lower New York Bay (off Coney Island, where the monster was awoken) and onwards to Liberty Island (where the monster first makes its presence felt) there's no straight-line path that would subsequently put the monster in lower Manhattan. If it continued on a straight line from here it would wind up in Jersey City or Union city. However this assumes that the creature would continue in a straight line. Given that the monster is a disoriented, angry sea creature, and that it negotiated the Narrows to stay in the water until it came across Liberty Island, it's not unreasonable that it returned to the Upper New York Bay after attacking the statue instead of pushing onwards over land. If it continued inland up the Bay, it would inevitably run into Manhattan Island as we see in the movie.
