There’s nothing new about a monster picking off people one by one in a locked-down setting (in this case, a storage facility).

But Johannes Roberts’ thriller adds some freshness to the formula via the messy break-up between confused Charlie (co-writer Noel Clarke) and aloof dumper Shelley (Antonia Campbell-Hughes).

It’s far from flawless: the set-up feels forced and certain sequences do meander into tedium.

Yet even so, there’s enough gore, ideas and self-aware absurdity here to make it something a bit more enticing than merely Alien : The EastEnders Redux .
