Why do I keep renting low budget horror movies? So many of them are so very, very, bad - but every now and then, after wading through hours or cinematic dreck, I finish watching one and go "WoW!!! What could they have done with an actual budget?"
13 HOURS IN A WAREHOUSE is a dark and creepy tale about five thugs who have just stolen a priceless artifact from an art gallery. The caper went off without a hitch - except one. The getaway car in the alley behind the gallery was stolen, so they had to carjack a lady to meet their partners at the rendesvous point - an abandoned warehouse formerly owned by two of the thugs' Dad. So the five bad guys and their terrified hostage meet up at this abandoned warehouse, where the buyer for the artifact is going to meet them the next morning for the big payoff. All they have to do is survive 13 hours till morning, then they can ditch (or kill) their hostage and go their separate ways.
But this warehouse was used for more than storing crates. The former owner - father of two of the thieves - used to shoot snuff flicks there. And now vengeful spirits of his victims roam the warehouse, and the number "3-23-69" is showing up all over the walls . . . written in blood. And five miniature nooses and five dead rats give a grim warning as to how this night will end . . .
With zero budget and simple camera effects, director and screenwriter Dav Kaufman has created a creepy little masterpiece. You need to check this out if you can!
New movie for my Netflix queue, thanks!
