Storage 24 starts off interestingly enough. Mileage is sure to vary, but due to the intriguing performances of the cast, the love triangle that develops between our main characters is actually quite engaging. The melodrama develops at a decent pace and the twists and turns of it are also played quite well against all of the genre conventions that seem to pop up. While we get to know these characters and see how their stories develop, there’s also a horror movie that brews and peaks at all of the right moments. This “background horror movie” that develops, which soon overtakes the main plot, is undoubtedly marred by stale genre conventions. Characters split up and search in opposite directions, characters leave behind allies due to vendettas (putting them in danger of being killed by our monstrosity), and just about every possible trope that this genre could have to offer is brought up. While the twists and turns of the love triangle aren’t always easy to see coming, unfortunately, the “spooky” bits are.
