While "Storage 24" earned its fair share of praise from around the globe as a cult film, it took its sweet time to make it to the US. Of course, I wasn't one to run out and purchase the damn thing on release day as my skepticism of its director's history (who directed a SyFy film "Roadkill" previous - which I skipped) made me a bit cautious. So when I found it to watch on Netflix Streaming, I was all about it. Who wouldn't want to start off their Blood-tober Horrorfest with a modern "Alien" knock off in a storage unit?! To my surprise, director Johannes Roberts lifts this rather mundane B-grade script far above the limits it should have reached, delivering a film that has some fun special effects, some moments of strong tension, and enough flair to sell it all as something other then the "Alien" knock off it obviously is.
|Careful...yellow means caution.|
|It's not an "Alien" knock off if it doesn't have some duct crawling.|
|Bonus points for the 'real' special effects though.|
