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 (Noel Clarke) and Shelley (Antonia Campbell-Hughes), accompanied by best friends Mark (Colin O'Donoghue) and Nikki (Laura Haddock), are at 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?

Like many horror thrillers, Storage 24
works on a simple idea. It puts an ensemble cast of divisive characters in a storage facility, and very gradually unleashes something nasty on them. To be fair, these are the ingredients for as many bad movies as good ones, but fortunately Storage 24
has plenty to elevate it above the crowd.
Director Johannes Roberts, who has the underrated horror film F to his name, clearly knows the genre. He keeps threats hidden in the shadows as much as possible, and it makes some big moments more memorable as a result. The cast help, too, led by original writer Noel Clarke. He's joined by the likes of Colin O'Donoughue and Laura Haddock, each fleshing out three-dimensional characters.
The disc goes into great detail on the background of the film, with a lively commentary from Roberts and Clarke leading the way. There are deleted scenes, too, as well as a few other bits of behind the scenes information. It's a rounded collection, for a film that proves you don't need a massive budget to keep the audience near the edge of its seat. Oh, and Storage 24 has a great ending, too, which we're not going to spoil here... --Jon Foster
