The Hoarder has Room for Another Body or Two

There have been a number of storage-styled horror films of late. There was the simply titled Storage (2009), then Self Storage (2013) and then the sci-fi infused Storage 24 (2014). This time, your trip to the local storage facility takes place with Matt Winn's The Hoarder. Starring Mischa Barton ("The O.C.") and Robert Knepper ("Prison Break"), The Hoarder involves a break-in of a storage facility and the strange cast of characters who lie behind these locked doors. A trailer for the film was released in the middle of 2015. Then, the film was released in Germany in late 2015. Now, horror film fans can take a look at the film's release, which is scheduled for April 2016.

The official synopsis focuses on Ella (Barton). She decides to break into her fiancĂ©’s storage locker. But, things do not go according to plan. An unspeakable monstrosity has taken residence in one of the other lockers. Meanwhile, a corrupt detective has his own nefarious designs. All of these characters come to blows, deep below ground, in a maze-like structure.

Fans of indie features can preview the film's release below. The film's trailer is hosted here. The clip shows the film's central villain and a couple of other elements, that might be best hidden behind the curtain. Still, The Hoarder promises several action sequences and a few harrowing moments. More details below.
