I tried to watch Cloverfield Paradox on Netflix last night per your recommendation, and I couldn't make it past about the first 30 minutes. The premise is interesting, but I just can't do scary movies alone in my home theater. My heart can't take it. I quit when the first scare occurred and the woman was trapped in the wall melded with the ship's wiring after the malfunction. I paused the movie to look up the plot on Wikipedia and see if it got crazier or if it was something I thought I could handle. Reading through the plot I decided I wasn't willing to endure the fright.
The sounds with atmos are just too much. I've never been a fan of horror and been susceptible to jumping and that's just easily compounded with a good dark home theater and 7.2.4 setup, and nearfield subs thumping my back, and trying to watch a movie like that alone.
My wife, when we first got married, said she liked scary movies, and made fun of me for being a chicken. Now she won't do them either. I think her change of heart is related to the home theater experience. She'd never been around any kind of home theater space, and there's certainly a big difference between watching a scary movie in a well lit living room with a 27" TV, vs. watching a scary movie in a dark home theater with full surround sound and a huge picture.
Any rate - I wanted to watch it for the Atmos and soundtrack that, yes, I could immediately tell would be fun! The sound with the malfunction was fantastic --- but I took the chicken exit. Maybe I'll watch it on the LCD upstairs during the day with 15% volume. Yeah that'll be manly!
