“London is in chaos after a military cargo plane crashes, leaving its highly classified contents strewn across the city. Completely unaware that London is on lockdown, exes Charlie and Shelley, accompanied by best friends Mark and Nikki, are trapped in the Storage 24 facility – a dark maze of endless corridors – with a mysterious predator hunting them one by one.”
-From Magnolia’s press release.
This low budget British Sci-fi Horror is ambitious, but in my eyes falls short. The story becomes dry, and the pacing is weak. I soon started rooting for the demise of the main characters as I lost sight of the plot. The truth is, this movie is simply piggy backing on the great success of the independent British sic-fi horror Attack the Block. In fact, It might be safe to say this movie is ripping it off a bit. While I am admittedly coming off a bit harsh, it’s really not all that bad. It’s not really that good either. The crew, clearly limited by a low budget (which is honestly not a good excuse anymore) tried their best, and wound up with a little piece of mediocrity.
Overall Rating 4 out of 10
