Excerpt: The new sci-fi horror movie Storage 24 feels like the logical result of the well running dry. We've had monsters in houses and we've had monsters in caves. We've had monsters on spaceships and monsters in museums. What we haven't had before now is a monster in a public storage facility. This appears to be the only jumping off point for Storage 24 . It is not enough to carry a movie.
Conclusion: Despite picking up in the second half, 'Storage 24' remains a sluggish and rather boring creature-feature with an inherently problematic element at the plot's core. Director Johannes Roberts does what he can with the material and uses the maze-like corridors of the self-storage facility effectively, but the movie is ultimately a forgettable genre entry. The Blu-ray arrives with excellent picture quality and an enjoyable audio presentation.
Conclusion: Storage 24 doesn't really bring anything new to the monster movie game but it's got a few decent scenes of tensions, some enjoyable enough effects work and it makes solid use of a good location. It's far from a classic but it's passable enough entertainment, a fun time killer. Magnolia's Blu-ray looks and sounds pretty decent and it contains plenty of extras as well.
Summary: Watching the low-budget British creature feature Storage 24 —which takes place in one of those dreary, fluorescent-lit self-storage facilities—is a little like going through boxes of old junk. Most of it is forgettable garbage, but occasionally you come across a misplaced gem—a particularly gory kill, a wry line of dialogue—making the venture at least semi-worthwhile. Of course, this comes with the caveat that one person's treasure is another's trash, and vice versa.
Excerpt: Directed in England by Johannes Roberts, 2013's Storage 24 isn't really a movie that's likely to win any awards for originality, but it is a fun monster movie set in, as the title implies, a giant storage facility. When the movie begins, folks all over the place are going about their daily business as folks all over the place are apt to do.
