Where Did the Cloverfield Monster Come From, and Why?

After seeing the movie I wanted to know more. Where did it come from, this creature ten times as tall and 1,000 times as massive than anything that ever evolved on this planet? Normal bone would collapse under so much weight. Normal skin would explode under the pressure of the fluids it was trying to contain. A normal central nervous system would leave the thing moving in slow motion. It could never have evolved; it's far too big. Given normal predator-to-prey ratios, an Earth-sized planet couldn't support more than a few hundred, far to few to maintain a species over time. My conclusion is that the thing was bioengineered by a science far in advance of our own (we can barely introduce a genetic trait or two into an existing species; the Cloverfield creators built an entire creature). It's purpose must be to prepare our world for colonization by causing as much destruction as possible. A berserker. Assuming the little ones can grow into big ones (and make more little ones via asexual reproduction), the species will keep multiplying until it is the only animal life on our planet. Then its creators can show up at their leisure (given the light-speed barrier, this could be a long, long time) and send out a kill code; all the monsters die and they move on in. The kill code could be some encrypted combination of sounds that cause the monsters to die while replicating the sounds of the kill code, killing off the species on land and under the sea in a chain reaction. Perhaps the monsters explode, making it easier for them to biodegrade into fertilizer for alien plants. A world conquered, and none of the real attackers are ever at risk. An elegant solution. What do you think?

interesting theory, especially considering how in the last clip before the credits something was seen falling out of the sky into the ocean. some are saying it was the monster and others are saying that it is a satellite that woke the monster from a few thousand year slumber. if it was the monster that fell into the ocean (which seems the most plausible) then your theory actually indeed makes much sense and is quite logical.

I Heard From A very Reliable Source That The moster Was Buried At The Bottom Of The Ocean Millions Of Years Ago And A Sattlelite That Can be Seen Following into The Ocean at the end of the movie behind Robs Girlfriend,the sattlelite belongs to Slusho, wich was the company Rob Was Moving to Japan to work for. The Sattlelite awoke the Monster from a deep sleep And Then The Monster went on a rampage from New York City/Manhattan! DJTAPS Out!

I heard that it was a baby alien that landed in the ocean (that's why it sounds like a whale). When it roars it's not threatening Earth but calling out for it's parents

i agree its a baby right?
its not the only massive thing on earth moron dont forget about the other giant monsters if they didnt die get there bones crushed skin didnt explode and didnt move in slow motion then why would it.
u kno compared to bugs were giant monsters and we dont get oUr bones crushed skin didnt explode and didnt move in slow motion so imagine we r bugs and the monster is a human and u should kno why it doesnt die like that or any other monster doesnt die like that and it could of been a manmade monster or something small that atomic energy mutated and if they wanted 2 cause destruction why 1? and how do we kno its not the alien race that wants 2 live here i mean mayb cloverfield is smart?
and it could of evolved on earth u didnt make the universe




wat kind of monster is killed by sound thats pathetic
and SOMEone said it was a japanese satilite of course why the hell is it japanese just bcuase thats were most monsters r made or something iT could of been any countrys satilite
