storage 24 alien hand Noel Clarke

Storage 24 is a 2012 British science fiction horror feature film directed by Johannes Roberts (Hellbreeder, Forest of the Damned, F, Roadkill) from a screenplay by himself, Davie Fairbanks, Marc Small, and Noel Clarke (Doctor Who).

The movie stars Noel Clarke, Colin O’Donoghue, Antonia Campbell-Hughes, Laura Haddock.

On January 10, 2014, The Guardian newspaper reported that the film was the lowest gross of every film released in the USA in 2013, taking the equivalent of just £44. This was somewhat misleading as Storage 24 was only released in one cinema, for one day, as part of a contractual obligation.

‘This is a knows-its-place B picture which manages decent suspense and horror. It has to get past needless relationship chat at the start, but the monster-dodging is compelling, the creature design is good and there are a couple of in-your-face jumps.’ Kim Newman, Empire

‘what’s ultimately chilling about Storage 24 isn’t the horror of the alien’s close-quarters assault, but the rank misogyny that more than offensively underscores the Melrose Place-grade human drama that plays out as Charlie and his posse try to wrestle their way toward freedom. ‘ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine

‘An impressive if unoriginal monster is upstaged by – spoiler alert! – a cuddly toy dog with fireworks attached. The whole thing proves unexpectedly entertaining.’ Jeremy Clarke, The Guardian

‘ … aching to be a gripping monster movie, but it’ll have to settle with being a merely serviceable one. The picture benefits from invested filmmaking, with the production working diligently to pull off a haunted house atmosphere populated with rounded characters, while unleashing a creature with a horrifying interest in the innards of its human prey.’ Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com

‘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.’ Matt Donato, We Got This Covered

  1. Saw this recently and did not think it was that bad! Aside from the “where are the authorities” it was rather entertaining! I actually saw it from beginning to end in one shot! Descent flick!!
