Question about Cloverfield

The more I see of this movie, the more the question comes to my mind: Is Cloverfield an Americanized version of The Host?

I’ve been avoiding as many spoilers as I can and I am relying just on the trailers that I see on TV and on the Web. It seems like there is a monster on the loose and a simultaneous plot about a disease of some sort. The big difference that I see is in the heroes of the story. The heroes of Cloverfield look like a bunch of pretty hipsters, while the heroes of The Host were a lot more unpretty and unhip.

Still, I will be there on January 18th and if I can, I will record a spoiler free podcast about the movie later that night.
