I've been a sucker for anthology movies since the Amicus horrors of the 60s and 70s (sadly I'm old enough to have seen Tales From The Crypt and Asylum on 'the big screen'), so the synopsis of a little movie called Locker 13 greatly appealed to me.
This is so nearly a great film of its type. All the stories are gripping, the wraparound included. Good dialogue and solid acting from some recognisable faces.
Unfortunately, short stories for me also need a satisfying payoff. And this is where Locker 13 falls down. After interesting build-ups, most of them left me thinking, "is that it?"
One memorable ending would have earned it a 7, but just a 6 for me. Certainly worth watching though.
