Storage 24 – Movie 137 of 365

31 Jul

storage24Since Shaun of the Dead I’ve been finding myself watching more British horror movies.  They seem to be just a bit more clever and story driven than their American counterparts. Or maybe I’m just a sucker for accents.

Now I would say Storage 24 is more sci-fi than horror but that’s not to say I didn’t jump several times. Storage 24 starts with a military plane crash in the middle of a busy city.  Several pieces of the plane land on or near a storage facility.  The result of which knocks out the lock system trapping several people inside.  Which normally wouldn’t be a problem except that there is something inside with them.  The keyword is that it’s not someone, it’s someTHING.  And while our cast of characters are working out their personal issues, and there are plenty, they slowly find out they are not alone and spend the rest of the movie trying to escape the thing as well as trying to find a way out of the facility.

This is not a blockbuster movie, there is not nearly enough weapons for that, but still it’s pretty fun and a bit scary, bloody and a tad gory in a few spots.  The setting of a storage facility makes an interesting backdrop as well since you aren’t dealing with traditional rooms but rows and rows of cargo-like containers.  Weapons and supplies get a bit creative because of that.  The secondary storyline is kind of light and a bit soap operaish, lots of relationship drama.  Although I would’ve cut out about a third of that storyline, it does mostly fill in nicely around all the running and the dying.
