Man, I love how every year the festive season begins to churn out trailers for horror movies, as if it was a natural solution to fight back against all the Christmas cheer films that pop up at this time of year.
And here’s one right now, starring Doctor Who’s Mickey as he finds himself far away from a TARDIS and trapped between a hostile alien and a hard storage unit.
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?
Looks like some decent fun, thrills and chills, and I kind of like how the creature is actually seen for a few brief glimpses in this trailer. Y’know, instead of just teasing audiences with a flickering of it’s droppings like all other films do these days.
Directed by Johannes Roberts, Storage 24 stars co-writer Noel Clarke, Colin O’Donoghue, Antonia Campbell-Hughes, Laura Haddock, Jamie Thomas King and Alex Price. It’s out this Thursday on iTunes, and hit’s DVD next year.
