Sheds are where murder happens. That's just a fact of life. If you go into a shed, you're probably going to die a grisly death of one sort or another.

The Shed is a vicious little bite into the genre, a friendly reemergence of ghoulish vampires and hormonal teenage angst sharing their DNA yet again.

The Shed isn't terrible and it does have promise as a concept but thanks to its lethargic execution there isn't a great deal to recommend it beyond adding it to your queue if it pops up on your streaming service of choice.

Most of the gore is neatly paired with sight gags to neutralise the terror, and it's an efficient enough machine for generating scares.

Along with the jump-scares and general viciousness, there's a refreshing amount of clever storytelling. This offers a continual stream of witty touches and twisted details that pull the audience in before the overwrought mayhem erupts.

An interesting morality tale, by way of vampires, about the nature of power between the bullies and the bullied.

The social subtext doesn't carry much weight alongside the supernatural nonsense, and it's difficult to find sympathy for these characters who consistently lack common sense.
November 15, 2019
Part angsty teen melodrama, part gore-soaked vampire film, the offbeat horror picture "The Shed" should appeal to anyone who likes their genre stories imbued with personal feeling.

In the end, The Shed is not quite good enough to be worth seeing, but it is just good enough to make one curious about what Sabatella might have to offer the next time around.

There's nothing to make your hair stand on end in The Shed because it's not convincing.

It's more concerned with how the traumatized people act when facing danger rather than just telling about the vampire's urge to kill.

If there's one thing The Shed gets right, it's reassuring viewers that vampires can be savage, malicious creatures of nightly fury.

This indie shocker starts strong but doesn't know how to leverage its slick premise.

Without turning into a cheesy after school special, Sabatella spins a classic '80s yarn into brilliant social commentary.

RIP sparkly moody vampires, as The Shed takes them back to the monstrous beings they have always meant to be.

It operates on familiar tropes ... and then it twists it in very dark directions. It's just unfortunate it ultimately devolves into a stereotypical battle with an ancient evil.

The Shed offers a version of the vampire mythos that is deeply rooted in fears and concerns of today and has a valuable lesson: don't be a bully, because you never know what is hiding in the bullied kid's shed.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

Although the horror tropes here are familiar ones, The Shed is well put together and, unlike many films of its ilk, actually has something to say. There's a solidity at its core that will endear it to fans and see it linger in the memory.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
