Vault tells a story about a group of small time criminals in 1975 who attempt to pull off the biggest heist in American history; stealing over $30 million from the Mafia in the smallest state in the union, Rhode Island.
Jake is the overnight security guard at a highly-secured Self Storage facility in rural Rhode Island. When his friend's party plans fall through, he invites them to his job site to throw a fiesta of his own. There couldn't be a better location: removed, no people, nothing but party... right? Innocent mischief turns a naughty night of fun into an evening of horror. We soon learn that some things were meant to stay under lock and key and certain places were supposed to be left undisturbed. The kids aren't the only ones at the self storage facility who are looking for a night of fun. Written by
A low budget, low rent slasher flick. As is usual for this particular genre, the film is blighted by poor scripting and poor acting, not to mention a godawful soundtrack as another reviewer has mentioned. It's automatically bottom-of-the-barrel stuff, albeit with a single exception: somebody brought in cast members Eric Roberts and Michael Berryman, teamed them up with lots of humorous one-liners, and made the film mildly watchable as a result.
Truthfully, Roberts and Berryman are the only good things in this. The humour they bring is a lot of fun, even if their character motivations remain resolutely unbelievable. Elsewhere it's just bad acting, random sex and drug scenes, and characters being irritating. There are some strong gore and torture scenes but they're not dwelt on too much, thank goodness, alongside some choice nudity from the actresses. It's all very poor indeed, apart from the scenes with Roberts and Berryman.
