London is in chaos. A military cargo plane has crashed leaving its highly classified contents strewn across the city. Completely unaware London is in lockdown, Charlie and Shelley, accompanied by best friends Mark and Nikki, are at a Storage 24 dividing up their possessions after a recent break-up. Suddenly, the power goes off. Trapped in a dark maze of endless corridors, a mystery predator is hunting them one by one. In a place designed to keep things in, how do you get out?

A London self-storage facility provides an appropriately eerie location for Storage 24, an amiably routine genre pic that combines sci-fi and horror elements.
This low-budget Alien knock-off set in a London self-storage facility inspires more claustrophobia than chills.
Derivative and dorky, Storage 24 still entertains more often than it exasperates.
Feels like the germ of an idea with stuff lifted from 'Alien' et al and bolted on.
completely works for what it is, and its low-budget nature keeps things grounded
The headache you'll get from the first half of the flick is not worth the meager thrills you'll get from the second.
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.
More chilling than the horror of the alien's close-quarters assault is the rank misogyny that more than offensively underscores the Melrose Place-grade human drama.
While sluggishly starting in a fashion horror/sci-fi fans are all too familiar with, Storage 24 takes an unexpected turn for the awesome with bouts of ooey-gooey creature horror - but still leaves us wanting a tad more.
The film is, as Clarke's hooded Kidulthood character might say, 'well gash, innit'.
[C]ross[es] the line into misogy-wah! territory, and conflate[s] an attack by an alien monster with an attack by mean ol' b*tches on innocent men who didn't do nothin' to deserve it.
Makes the most of a simple premise and single location setting, the cast are uniformly good, and the impressive creature delivers nastily effective splatter chaos.
With Johannes Roberts directing, this apocalyptic piece of cheaply made science fiction wends its way through an absurd plot with some energy.
Storage 24 is destined to be packed into a cardboard box and forgotten about by everyone.
Never quite scary enough to be a horror, nowhere near funny enough to be a comedy and not exciting enough to be an action movie, but stitches all three elements together into a satisfying whole.
Storage 24 is solid, entertaining but unremarkable genre fare, littered with two-dimensional characters and predictable twists.
- Mark: Well, you definitely scratched it.
- Charlie: I've got nothin to loose now. So I'm gonna go fight that thing...
