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.
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.
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.
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.
