World War Z
The Bling Ring
Jack the Giant Slayer
21 And Over
An Open Letter to Young British Filmmakers...
One flawed concept, dragged out for 90 uninspired, shoddily-executed minutes.
| Original Score: 1/5
The film is, as Clarke's hooded Kidulthood character might say, 'well gash, innit'.
| Original Score: 2/5
Literally feels like it's 24 hours long.
Storage 24 is destined to be packed into a cardboard box and forgotten about by everyone.
The headache you'll get from the first half of the flick is not worth the meager thrills you'll get from the second.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
A monster from a familiar mother.
Feels like the germ of an idea with stuff lifted from 'Alien' et al and bolted on.
[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.
completely works for what it is, and its low-budget nature keeps things grounded
| Original Score: 3/5
B-movie fodder ideal for low-expectation late evening TV viewing.
You'd give this tolerable British creature feature more credit if it didn't pluck shot after shot from the Alien movies - there's even a character ripped in half who turns out to be still alive.
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.
| Original Score: 1/4
British sci-fi thriller is a shocker (and that's just the acting)
It's consciously derivative film-making, aimed at people who paid to see every sequel to Friday The 13th and didn't mind that they were basically the same movie.
This low-budget Alien knock-off set in a London self-storage facility inspires more claustrophobia than chills.
With Johannes Roberts directing, this apocalyptic piece of cheaply made science fiction wends its way through an absurd plot with some energy.
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.
| Original Score: 6/10
The whole thing proves unexpectedly entertaining.
| Original Score: 4/5
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.
