“Storage 24” is aching to be a gripping monster movie, but it’ll have to settle with being a merely serviceable one. The picture benefits from invested filmmaking, with the production working diligently to pull off a haunted house atmosphere populated with rounded characters, while unleashing a creature with a horrifying interest in the innards of its human prey. Certainly enjoyable with a few interesting stalking sequences, “Storage 24” isn’t remarkable, falling into a few low-budget traps along the way. It burns through a somewhat predictable routine of survival instincts, nutty outsiders, and betrayals, while the central alien antagonist could use 15 more minutes in the CGI oven to firm up some lackluster details.



A military airplane has crashed in the heart of London, with its contents spilling across a section of the city, striking Storage 24, a storage unit complex. Losing power after the building is locked down for security, a handful of customers are trapped inside, waiting impatiently for order to be restored. Charlie (Noel Clark, who co-wrote the script) has recently broken up with his longtime girlfriend, Shelley (Antonia Campbell-Hughes), teaming with pal Mark (Colin O’Donoghue) to help retrieve his belongings. Unfortunately, Shelley has already begun to sort through the junk with friends Nikki (Laura Haddock) and Chris (Jamie Thomas King), creating considerable tension as Charlie hopes to get to the bottom of the separation. As the group engages in arguments, a greater evil emerges from the shadows. Forced to battle a gigantic insect-like creature from outer space, the gang hopes to find weaponry in other storage units, while David (Ned Dennehy), a borderline insane resident of the building, offers his guidance, heading into the bowels and air ducts of Storage 24 to restore power.

Directed by Johannes Roberts, “Storage 24” offers a nifty premise that plays like a budget version of “Super 8,” only without the suburban understanding or the Spielberg-branded sense of awe. The feature is more of a mean machine dedicated to conflicts in tight spaces, exposing its low-budget foundation by staging nearly the entire film inside the storage facility, forcing Roberts to dream up ways to keep the location fresh and the characters plausibly sealed off from the rest of the world. Accepted with relaxed expectations and “Storage 24” contains adequate tension, primarily emerging from the gang as they feel around various lockers, looking for weapons, separated pals, and clues as to what’s really hunting them. Roberts works well with the dark, and what he lacks in original thinking he makes up for in suspense, successfully tightening the noose as the survivors attempt to free themselves from the building without triggering the alien’s attention.



To the production’s credit, there is an attempt to create characters with a little more on their minds than panic, scripting a subplot of confusion and jealousy as Charlie and Shelley work out their painful break-up, with a few extra knots to untie as the film unfolds. It’s not the most invigorating drama, but the heartsickness keeps the personalities from becoming cattle for the slaughter, adding a human touch to a basic genre assault, even when the writing isn’t providing a challenging assessment of fractured headspaces before the alien breaks up the pity party.

Once the insect begins taking victims, “Storage 24” coasts on adrenaline, though the visual effects bringing the creature to life look half-finished, distracting from the macabre events. It looks sloppy, while the enemy’s plan of attack is quite inviting, rampaging around the building, clawing off faces and removing still-beating hearts from unfortunate prey. Once David enters the story, “Storage 24” morphs into a war film, only the good guys are armed with fireworks, not stacks of guns. The chase is compelling and the villain acceptably gruesome, only in need of animation refinement, creating a believable nightmare.



With moments of excitement and a decent manipulation of its limited budget, “Storage 24” registers as pleasing junk food. It’s far from imaginative and its sequel-baiting conclusion is a tad presumptuous, but it’s certainly an acceptable matinee distraction and an effective creature feature, at least in rare moments where the monster actually resembles a monster and not a PS3 glitch.

Starring: Noel Clarke, Colin O'Donoghue, Jamie Thomas King, Antonia Campbell-Hughes, Laura Haddock
