Reviews:

” … highly reminiscent of many different films, such as Devil, Cube, Vacancy and even the original Alien, but it still has a slight freshness to it. Sure, all its elements have been seen before but the combination of these elements placed together offers the viewer something that isn’t wholly predictable and, while a long way from ground-breaking, does make for an entertaining movie with the occasional tense moment.” Si Barnes, HorrorNews.net

“In terms of suspense, there isn’t really a lot going on there either. Characters are killed off with no time to build them properly, but the ending sort of works and again, without revealing what the situation is and spoiling it, the final 20 or so minutes do feel more worthwhile than if it was just a creature movie, so that made a bit of a nice change.” Sorry, Never Heard of It

“Entertaining for the majority of its running time, the film is let down by clunky dialogue, some stupid character actions, and some annoying characters.” James Pemberton, UK Horror Scene

  1. I was turned off from the movie because of your review, still I watched the trailer to see if the remove matches. I agree in some aspects that the movie is not a shocker. It has a formula that’s present in most horror/suspense movies. However what strikes me is the fact it exploits a storage facility and I think that’s the scare to it. Overall, your rating is fair enough for people to watch it.

    • Thanks for the feedback Patrick. The three review quotes above (with links to the full reviews) aren’t, in fact, our review. Horrorpedia.com offers a range of review quotes/links from the web, magazines and books, to provide potential viewers and/or purchasers informed choices, backed with – as you note – teaser(s) and trailer(s). That said, we watched The Hoarder last night and will be adding our own Horrorpedia comment later today!
