Would somebody clarify because a lot of people seem to have the same problem as me. When I open ethanhaaswasright.com it is just a blue gear that begins to spin then stops and you cannot do anything on your browser. The egg timer appears and i have to close the web and sign on again. Do you need to download FLASH or SHOCKWAVE or anything?? please i must play this game it sounds awesome


It is a Flash game, but the fact that you are getting the loading page (which is Flash) suggests you do have a Flash Player already installed.

However, since I do not know why some people are having trouble and others are not with loading the game, my best advice is to update your Flash Player to the latest version. A link for doing so is in the sidebar: "Get Flash".


yeah if the page doesnt load up you have to download the latest version of flash player I think its version 9 I had the same problem.

SenorLopez July 9, 2007 4:57 PM

For the people who are confused about the email that you request whenever you complete the games, I believe that everyone on the list is going to get one on August 1st, correct me if I'm wrong.

For the people confused about the code that you get after completing the puzzles, there is none. All of the supposed "Codes" say "DIVINUS" at the top of the slate, BEFORE you enter your email address.

Quiksilver77 July 9, 2007 5:40 PM

OK I finished the puzzles...then did some searching on the web based off what I saw in the trailer and on the website...here is what I found.

The guy running in the trailer says something like "I saw it, it's a lion, it's huge!" The word at the end of the puzzle is "DIVINUS". Which translated from Latin, I believe is superhuman(divine, deity, God). So I then Googled lion god and got "Sekhmet" which is the daughter of RA. A quick wikipedia search yielded this: Sekhmet was believed to protect the pharaoh in battle, stalking the land, and destroying his enemies with arrows of fire. Which in the trailer you see fire explosions and what looks like 'arrows of fire' shoot out from them.


I have no doubt (almost) that is for a movie, but which one? I saw it on the site of an interactive shop that does mostly movie sites



I just wanted to say that I saw the trailer before transformers, and I consider myself lucky as I'm from the UK and got to see it in the theater three weeks before release over here because I was on vacation. It may be what I hear but the guy doesn't say "It's a lion" He says "It's alive".

Michael Buchanan July 9, 2007 7:16 PM

Did anyone check out the blog for ethanhaaswaswrong.com?

I emailed the supposed Mezin source and got some wierd hirogliphic e-mail back. (Did I spell that right? Hah)


Hey I've read through everything on this page and various other sources and still can't figure out the 4th puzzle. I've tried both the arrow set provided in the walkthrough, and the "doubled-up" version. Does anyone have anything that will actually help?


The directions in the walkthrough should still work, unless they have changed the puzzle, which isn't totally out of the realm of possibility.

Just remember when following the directions, if nothing moves when you press one of the arrows, then you MUST PRESS IT AGAIN. The first time you press a direction could be just an orientation change if they weren't facing in that direction.

Why they chose that as an implementation for this puzzle is beyond me, as it makes this puzzle more difficult than it needs to be.

There was a puzzle just like this in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. And I believe in that puzzle, after you pressed one of the directions, the puzzle pieces would first change their orientation and then move all in one step.


I hope they haven't changed the puzzle.
I understand completely how it works, it's just that I can't actually get it to work. I've tried following both instructions many times, and screwed around on my own for several hours and can only get two at a time.


I'll erase my saved progress, empty my browser cache (thereby downloading a fresh version), and try it again.

Give me a few minutes and I'll post another comment with my findings.


To SenorLopez who thought the page on www.1-18-08.com reminded him of "The Class"

It's interesting that you mention that for a couple of reasons.

1) Lizzy Caplan, who played Kat in The Class, also stars in Cloverfield
2) Ethan Haas is the name of the character played by Jason Ritter in The Class - Kat's last love intrest before the show was cancelled.

A couple of coincedences?


I just erased my saved progress and went through the puzzles again and they HAVE NOT CHANGED.

I have re-confirmed that the walkthrough above works for puzzle #4.

Again, when doing puzzle 4, if only the arrow indicators on the green and blue pieces change direction when you press the appropriate arrow key, then YOU NEED TO PRESS IT AGAIN.

If, however, the pieces MOVE when you press one of the directions in the walkthrough, then that one is done and you should advance to the next direction in the walkthrough.

Margarita July 9, 2007 10:08 PM

Having trouble in puzzle #3 i cant see the letters because there to mushed up and blurry. Help me please


thanks a bunch guys

Scorpius Blue July 9, 2007 11:23 PM

Have any of you gone to Apple for a better view of the teaser? Did the guy say "it's a lion" OR "it's alive" ??? Is this some Stargate prequel? Kind of reminds me of War of the Worlds but with an Invasion of the Body Snatchers thrown in. Off topic...I would love to see a really great remake of Logan's Run and Soylent Green.


Anyone notice that Ethan Haas is the name of a character in "The Class" and that one of the actresses listed on imdb for the film, was/is in the show?
That's the only ethan haas I could find.



Yes, it has been mentioned several times already here, in fact.


So is there a trick to get the second puzzle to open? Because its just a rock ball right now, I can do the puzzle if it opens, doesn't seem to want to though.


This is the funnest of the fun. I am not usually all geek about stuff, but I love how Paramount is throwing all the clues out. I have been wikipeding and imdbing and googling like crazy.

When I first saw the trailer I immediately thought "Godzilla" for some reason, but I am thinking that's a no.

Hopefully the movie doesn't end up sucking.

Anonymous July 10, 2007 12:38 AM

Its an old aztec deity called cthulu look around do some research its there go see my MOVIE!!!! EH

Scorpius Blue July 10, 2007 12:54 AM

I looked up a bit about the whole 'lion' stuff...on wikipedia it says "Sekhmet's blood-lust led to her destroying almost all of humanity" sounds like what could happen. Just a thought


I have a theory, but it may be incorrect. On the puzzles I saw the letter V, which is 5 in roman numerals. The year 2007 plus 5 equals 2012, the year the Mayans predicted that the world would spiritually change, or there would be an Apocalypse, and in the videos, Van talks about events much like the end of the world, and of a "new faith."


just a random observation I made

an anagram of the solution to the last puzzle "thebeginningistheend" is "eden begins in the night." I just thought it might be interesting to some of the people talking about how the movie is probably related to god/gods.

I noticed it when I was solving the puzzle and didn't use the method described in the walkthrough, but just tried to reason it out (it took a lot longer my way).



I have to say that this was all fun. Took me a couple of hours (with the help of this forum). : )

I believe that all this is to make us think of the possibilities that is in store for us. But, why worry and ponder on the unimaginable which we have no control over. If it's going to happen it will happen.

Or....it could be a great marketing ploy which gets lots of peoples names and email addresses so that on Aug. 1st they can promote a new movie, or whatever they are wanting to sell.

Toe-mae-toe toe-mah-toe

Good Luck to those still playing.


i really like the mayan 2012 idea, but everything's supposed to happen august first THIS YEAR right? i mean, it never says 2012. i'm pretty sure at the end of the game it even says "august first 2007" or something. it definitely seems like an apocalypse/new faith thing, though. is cthulhu mayan?


oh, wait, cthulhu is from lovecraft, haha, sorry.


I've watched the trailer more times than I can count now and at first I thought I heard that man yell "it's alive, it's huge", after listening more closely I'm convinced the man says "it's a lion"...

As many of you have clued in already the 'Apocalypse' and the 'Book of Revelations' has many references of a gigantic beast with the head of a lion. If this movie depicts the "Beginning of the End", it may just follow some kind of a Biblical storyline. You never know! Anyway, here's some cool literature I pulled of this website: http://www.cgi.org/booklets/apoc_1.html

I hope you don't mind Jay...this might be a bit much to post. Thanks...

The Beast of the Apocalypse:

The apostle John, transported forward into time, wrote of the strange, awesome things he saw in the book of Revelation-- the Apocalypse. He wrote, "And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy" (Revelation 13:1). "And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, ‘Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?'" (verse 4). "And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him....These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone" (Revelation 19:20).
Something so powerful, so gigantic, that it is worshipped because of its vast military power; something that assays to fight the returning, conquering Christ at His coming is obviously a political, economic, and military power which exists at the very time of the end! But who? Where? The prophet Daniel saw it first, a monster which "devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it" (Daniel 7:7). Then John saw it, at the end of the first century; a seven-headed, ten-horned monster rising from the sea, blaspheming God, and making "war against the saints." What is the Beast? Where did it first plant its feet? Where did it go? Follow, now, from the annals of history and from the pages of Bible prophecy, the tracks of the Beast, and come to understand its frightening prophetic significance for our time!

The beast John saw in vision seemed to rise out of an ocean. It had seven heads and ten horns. The horns featured ten crowns, while the heads were decorated with names which are blasphemous in God's sight.
What is the meaning of this seven-headed, ten-horned creature?
John said, "And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear [strange feet indeed, for a leopard-like creature!], and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority" (Revelation 13:2).
John wrote what he saw, without comprehending all the meaning. As a reporter, or a biographer, he was faithfully recounting what he saw in a vision. A strange creature, indeed; terrible in aspect, threatening, powerful. The power and authority from this many-headed, many-horned composite creature came from a dragon.

What is meant by a "dragon"?

Dragons, purely mythological creatures, remind one of serpentine monsters with huge, bat-like wings; fierce heads with blazing, snake-like eyes; heavy, clawed feet like those of a crocodile; and rows of wickedly gleaming, sharply pointed teeth, breathing roaring tongues of fire from their mouths.
But we need not speculate about what is meant by the dragon which empowers the beast, for the Bible plainly tells us what it is: "And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him" (Revelation 12:7-9).
The dragon is a symbol for Satan.
Jesus Christ said, "I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven" (Luke 10:18). Satan is the "prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience" (Ephesians 2:2), and is "the god of this world" (II Corinthians 4:4) who influences heads of state and leaders of false, counterfeit religions. He is "the accuser of the brethren" (Revelation 12:10), who, "as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour" (I Peter 5:8).
The many-headed, ten-horned beast is empowered and guided by Satan! As such, it is antichrist, against God, against His holy laws, His Sabbath days, and viciously, hatefully against His people, called the saints. It is against those who are performing the work of God on this earth.

Stephen July 10, 2007 2:55 AM

It's official...Ethan Haas has nothing to do with cloverfield. J.J. Abrams himself has disavowed any connection:


So what is this thing then?

Stephen July 10, 2007 3:13 AM

Also a fun connection to another site reviewed by JIG:


Apparently Red Interactive Agency (they have that site where you can be a 2D colonial character and wander around/fly/chat/etc.) is behind the Ethan Haas ARG.

Michelle July 10, 2007 3:26 AM

Ok so the 3rd puzzle is like checkers you have to jump lights to extinguish them just an FYI for those who still dont know :) man this movie thing is soo trippy i wonder what it will turn out to be! But i will say that this is a great marketing scheme especially with all the blog sites and everything else along with the trailor


i am having the same problems, the 9th one wont load


I saw the question posted before but didn't see an answer. Is there any way to reset the fourth puzzle? I started playing with it before I found the answers here and now can't seem to get it back to a point that the answer given here works.

catgrin July 10, 2007 7:28 AM

Hey - I did read that AICN write up where JJ Abrams insists this is unrelated. (I'll believe it when it's all over. Especially since parasitemovie.com - which links back to 1-18-08.com - has a countdown to 12:36 on August 1st.) So I've still got to ask about the thing that's been bugging me these past couple days:

Am I the only person who while watching the trailer heard:

(girl) What is it, an earthquake?!

(guy) No it isn't. It's a light it's HUGE!

Keep in mind that they're saying this as they're running away from the havok created by a giant, glowing sphere with a penchant for spitting fire balls...


This site has been semi-confirmed to be related to the 1-18-08/Cloverfield/Parasite movie: http://slusho.jp/
(and the trailer is now up on Apple.com)

But, it seems Ethan Haas may be a totally different game, likely a different movie...or ARG...or who knows what.

randomname July 10, 2007 10:57 AM

the third puzzle is bugged,

you can not have any moves left and it won't reset. (stuck with 6 lights left, 5 in a line, and one 2 spaces away)

John Doe July 10, 2007 11:45 AM

Ok, for puzzle 2 I've entered

"HA" on the inner rings, and "AS" on the outer ring

but nothing is happening. Could anybody tell me whether I'm just having some sort of loading problem, or if I missed something with the puzzle?


John - for puzzle #2, when you set the letters on the "inner" (vertical) rings, you need to set them so the blue lights show. If the lights are not blue, they're set incorrectly.


parasitemovie.com is not related to the movie. The site is someones lame attempt to gain some stats with all the hipe. View the source of the page and check the linking.


i have

the beginning is the end

in the space for the last puzzle, but nothing happens

[Edit: Then you don't have the correct letters in place as you think you do. Something is wrong. Go back and check your solution. And please use spoiler tags next time. I've added them here for you. -Jay]


I cant get anything to happen with the 3rd puzzle, i can click and drag the blue dots around, but the go back to their original spot when i let them go, i've tried dropping them everywhere.


So, is the password at the end after the last puzzle, and after the last video, where it asks for your email? Is that the password?

[Edit: There is no password at the end of the game. What do you expect to receive a password for? -Jay]


i need help on the second one its not working at all

so send me some feed back on it plz


Well, in the final voideo it says you got a special key code or something. I entered in my name and email address, but still have recieved nothing. I was wondering what the key code was/was for?


JJ Abrams has clearly said that this has nothing to do with Cloverfield aka 1-18-08. I have a very strong feeling this has a lot to do with the new star trek movie he is making... comments?

Unstoppable1 July 10, 2007 4:34 PM

This has everything to do with Cloverfield. JJ is just trying to throw you off. He did the same thing with the Lost ARG.


This is pretty cool. I hadn't heard anything about this until today, and at first I thought it was just some cultist loon telling everyone the end is near.

I've spent the last several hours googling lovecraft, cthulhu, jj abram, cloverfield, and clicking link to link to link. Definately filled up my afternoon off, lol.

Guess I'll sit tight and wait for an e-mail on August first to find out exactly what the whole thing is about.



has anyone notinced in reference to the countdown to 12:36 on aug 1st that the photo of the two girls on the 1-18-08.com site was taken at 12:36 am?

Confused July 10, 2007 6:04 PM

well i cheated. and that's fine. but it sucks when cheating doesn't even work. i put the characters in on puzzle 5. i understand what order to put them in, i don't understand where. does it go down and across? like the first character in the first spot on the first line and the second on the first spot on the second line? or does the second one go on the second spot on the first line? or somewhere else entirely?


What's up with the guy in the trailer saying "I saw it. It's a lion. It's Huge"?

UglykitteN July 10, 2007 7:17 PM

I don't even know how to explain how I'm stuck on puzzle #4. I've seen the hints from this site and I've hit the arrows as they are written down, but I just end up spinning in circles and not getting it done. Please someone help me.

Scorpius Blue July 10, 2007 9:41 PM

The guy in the videos from the puzzles looks alot like 'Rob's friend that says "this will be somethingorother a night to remeber or whatever" at the end of the Cloverfield trailer.


I'm on puzzle four - however after doing some digging and viewing all the various blogs, etc., I feel a little let down. http://www.cloverfieldnews.com/ is reporting that J.J. himself has come out and said that none of the Ethan Haas material is related to his project - a little disconcerting? They're taking their info from Aintitcool.com.


This is the response I got from emailing Van:

I think I'm safe, for now. Wherever I go it isn't long before they find me.

It seems The Mezin are connected to every aspect of humanity, from culture and religion to our most advanced technology

I have to be more careful contacting all of you. When I began I thought I could safely speak about his writings and perhaps save us all...

but now it seems I will have to find a more subtle way to share his visions.

If this is the first message you have received from me do not give up hope! There are others that have gone before you, the way has been found, you only need to search and you will find the answers you seek. We will all have a role to play. We are getting stronger, our voices will be heard!

I have more of Haas's writings, once I find a secure way to transmit them I will leave you clues to find them.

The more I read the more I realize Haas was right………


Reading what wikipedia says about Cthulu, I find the references to water to be quite telling. Additionally, I've found another site (via another forum) stating www.slusho.jp is related. After viewing that site too, and it's references to drinking something from deep beneath the water...well, it's just very, very interesting and I believe too much of a coincidence. Plus, the graphics for that website are just far too slick for a product that isn't really even explained well. What do you all think?

Captain Impulse July 11, 2007 12:08 AM

In the trailer, the guy says "It's alive! It's huge!". There is no mention of a lion. You're hearing it wrong.

Flying Infant July 11, 2007 2:25 AM

If memory serves, slusho was a drink that was featured/named/something or other on Alias, which was a show by whom???

J.J. Abrams. Correct.

At least, thats what I've read.


i still have problems on puzzle 4... it doesnt move


this is VERY VERY VERY interesting...

I was doing some research, and explaining things to my father all about this ethan haas and whatnot.. well.. i told him all about it.. he said he just read a book, where this exact same thing happened, all the net advertising, random sites, subtle clues.. all for a big new movie.....now heres the biggest spoiler of all...

at the very end... there was no movie.... coincidence?

sleepzzz July 11, 2007 6:21 AM

on the site 1-18-08 has anyone else noticed the devil between the 2 girls in the pic


i think that Ethan Haas has nothing to do with cloverfield... we really don't have anything to connect it to the other stuff... i think.. as i said in my last post.. that's what it is... if you look at the way each was created.. the 1-18-08.com site and his.... the quality is fifferent, the way the trailer was made.. and the footage on the site.. =/ it doesn't add up.. i will find the exact book and let people know.. my dad's trying to find it.. he can't remember the title...


About http://www.ethanhaaswasright.com/ , and its possible relations with 1-18-08/cloverfield/parasite:

I think there's a point that most of the stuff I've read online is missing: Ethan Haas was right (or wrong) about what ?

I didn't watch The Class. If someone here did, can he tell us if Haas said or wrote anything about the end of the world, the Apocalypse, giant monsters, or Cthulhu, or New-York, or anything that could be related to 1-18-08 ?
What was this character like ?


What about the numbers that come up on the last stream of video when you get the fith puzzle right: 54312



has anyone else seen this?


cara - Those numbers factor into the solution of the 5th puzzle.

Twomey - my guess is that site was created by a fan, since I'm leaning toward the possibility that this is not connected with the viral project of JJ Abrams, and that site lists them all as if they are all related.

Squeegee July 11, 2007 2:10 PM

Okay, I give... How do I go about drinking more Slusho's? Also, didn't see anyone else mention or give links to: http://slusho.jp/index.html http://www.abz3293.com/


You know, I was really interested in this game when I first started it, but now that I'm on the 5th level waiting for it to load yet again (while I'm on dial up), this whole thing seems to be a huge waste of time. I'm still very interested in this movie 1 18 08 but hearing how this whole haas thing probably doesnt have anything to do with it... makes me feel like an idiot for playing this game :/

Oh well.


Icarus - I wouldn't feel like an idiot if I were you, nor do I feel it is a waste of time. The puzzles were fun, weren't they? Unless of course you resorted to the walkthrough to get you through it, because then, what's the point?

I believe what we may be seeing is the case of two different viral campaigns going on at once, and the players getting them mixed up an confused. Perhaps unprecedented with respect to ARGs since they are so relatively new? Still interesting, though, from an analytical perspective.


for assistance on puzzle 4

go slowly. wait until they move, then put in the next direction code.
if you had probs, reload the page & start over

Randall81 July 11, 2007 3:40 PM

Two things I've found out one seems like it's just a possible coincidence, the other seems a bit more interesting

First fo all, Ethan Haas is a character in an American Sitcom called "The Class" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Class

Second of all- in the general interests part of the myspace page, their is a quote from the Lovecraft book "Polaris"

Anonymous July 11, 2007 3:48 PM

I'm giving you guys a hint. This is the only place it is as of right now, it will probably spread. This is the hint...

go here: http://www.faruniverse.com

Randall81 July 11, 2007 3:50 PM


Also on that site it says "The Cloverfield Diaries" Just in case you missed it.

Randall81 July 11, 2007 4:03 PM

Wait, I was wrong earlier, it's not from Polaris (although that exact quote is there) but the quote is actually lovecraft quoting himself from The Pnakotic Manuscrpits.


1) PLEASE read through the comments here before posting information. Many things people are posting have already been mentioned SEVERAL TIMES. We already know about the character Ethan Haas in The Class. Ethan Haas is, actually, a quite common name.

2) Faruniverse.com was only just registered yesterday. Most likely it is a hoax attempting to exploit the hype about this.

3) Just because something appears on Ethanhaas.org doesn't mean ANYTHING. I believe Ethanhaas.org is nothing more than a fan site created to exploit the hype.

PLEASE PEOPLE: be more discerning in what you choose to believe(!!!)

MetalMINIMayhem July 11, 2007 4:49 PM

I think the 1-18-08 and the Cthulu movies are seperate entities.. I believe "Ethan Haas was right" may have to do with THIS movie... http://www.cthulhuthemovie.com/ if you watch the preview there are symbols that look a lot like the ones in these games.. just a thought..


Although I could be just as wrong as anyone, I'll say I don't think Ethan Haas has anything to do with the Cthulhu movie either. 1) I didn't see any symbols in the trailer or images that were remotely similar to the Ethan Haas puzzles; 2) The trailer makes the movie out to be more of a psychological thriller than anything else; where as the puzzle machines and backgrounds for Ethan Haas suggest differently.

Squeegee July 11, 2007 6:32 PM

I don't think there is a connection, either. This is far too smart for a Tori Spelling vehicle.

Squeegee July 11, 2007 6:44 PM

Great, they've thrown the Hanso Corp and a new one into the mix... A Lost tie in AND an Alias tie in...
see http://ethanhaas.org/ for the update


*Jay rolls his eyes*

Well, it sounds like they are just covering the bases and creating a catch-all site to collect discussions on these topics.

The Unfiction forums already cover all that quite nicely, thank you.

Squeegee July 11, 2007 7:04 PM

Thanks for the new link :)


Was anyone able to translate the email reply from MezinSource on the ethanhaaswaswrong.blogspot website???


I emailed them [[email protected]] some questions and this was their reply:

The writings look Arabic to me...but what do I know.

Anyway, 'Mezin Source' claims the location of 'Latvia' on their blooger info page, which is somewhere between Russia and the Baltic Sea.

digitalchronic July 12, 2007 1:45 AM

This game is not for the movie its for a video game coming out calle alpha omega

It has been revealed on aintitcool.com from the Director himself that the ethan haas stuff has nothing to do with the film he's making.




Although it's already been posted here several times about JJ Abrams disavowing any relationship to Ethan Haas, it was the 2nd link you posted that has me believing the Alpha Omega story.

Upon further inspection myself of the background of the Ethan Haas puzzles, it does, in fact, look exactly like the Mindstorm game announcement.

I'm glad we finally know the truth. :D


Actually Alpha Omega is not a video game but a tabletop RPG, essentially it's like Dungeons and Dragons

Ryan O. July 12, 2007 2:35 PM

It doesn't appear as though Ethan Haas has anything to do with Cloverfield. Need proof? I just found this website. Thoughts on this? I mean, if this doesn't dispel any Cloverfield connection, I don't know what could... unless Alpha Omega was a game made about the movie, but I doubt it... look at this... http://www.ffxiresource.com/devel/ethanhaas/

I understand that the 3rd puzzle is a peg-jump sort of game. But I just can't seem to get only one left. Anyone have a trick? Because I've played like 10 times and haven't gotten it, hah, and I'm starting to feel stupid.


Okay, I e-mailed the "Mezin Source" at [email protected], (got the email in a blog somewhere) and got an E-Mail back in some weird writing I can't understand. I don't think this is a spoiler, for the game at least.

I emailed "what is the mezin source, what happens on august first?"

And they sent back "होव एअसिल्य हुमनित्य इस

Anyone care to help me out?

Also, note the repetition of 6's throughout the 1-18-08 website, the trailer for the movie, and the Slusho website. I have listed them here...

-On the 1-18-08 website, there is a person with a number 6 on their shirt at the right hand side of the picture of the guy drinking.

-Slusho slogan: "You can't drink just 6."

-At the bottom of the Slusho website, there is a 6, followed by Japanese letters.

-There are 6 buttons you can click on the Slusho website.

-There are 6 letters in Slusho

-The weather in the trailer is 63 degrees.

-There is a picture of a devil between the two girls' heads in the picture on 1-18-08.com. I do not believe the devil is just a coincidence, no matter what everyone else says.

I don't know, maybe I am just trying too hard to put things together, but to me, the number 6 seems to be repetitious and MAY have something to do with the movie.


Since I believe we can all now agree there is irrefutable evidence that JJ Abrams 'Cloverfield' project (and hence 'Slusho' by extension) are unrelated to the Ethan Haas puzzle that this page's discussion is dedicated to, can we please now keep the discussion here on-topic (i.e., Ethan Haas related posts only) and stop posting information related to Slusho, Cloverfield and the like?

Thank you kindly. =)

so what is suppose to happen at the end of the fifth puzzle?


Very confused, yet very intrigued. What does the myspace site have to do with the "game"?

I swear, it's Donnie Darko all over again. BTW, did anyone else acsses all the documents on Donnie?
It was a very good companion to the movie.



Maybe it's got somthing to do with End Times. Who knows. But I like that Cthulu theory!!!

kouryou July 12, 2007 4:25 PM

sorry just saw the screeny of after the fifth puzzle can anyone put the letters in the order they're suppose to be in on the last one like


I can't seem to get it right

Hey guys,

I just discovered a new website for Cloverfield. Check it out and let me know if you think it's legit.

Did anyone notice when you send the email through slusho it goes to [email protected], and IMDB says Satoshi Kon began his career as a Manga artist. He then moved to animation and worked as a background artist on many films (including Roujin Z by Katsuhiro Otomo). I'm thinking it's a good bet that he's involved...


Slusho has 6 letters
cheese has 6 letters
mitten has 6 letters.
and I found this: http://library.thinkquest.org/C006353/engl.html

WHich seems to be unrelated until you read the top left...3+3=6, 6+3=9, and MEZIN's HTML!!
Mezin being the "Ethan was wrong" blogger.

So I tried emailing the link on the page. I figured I already emailed slusho and ethan, so what the heck. But I have not received an auto-responder.
