31 Days of Horror 2018: Day 23- The Vault

Posted October 23, 2018 by Thomas James Juretus in Movies

Day 23, and today we go to rob a bank in the 2017 chiller The Vault. Two sisters (Taryn Manning and Francesca Eastwood) try to aid their brother (Scott Haze) by robbing a bank to help pay off a large debt. Once there, they take hostages, and are seemingly aided by an employee (James Franco), who tells them there is a large stash in the vault located in the bank’s basement. Trouble is, there’s more than cash inside. 8/10 stars

The Vault is one of those movies you go into with lower expectations, and yet in the end have it turn out to be quite entertaining. Director Dan Bush (The Signal) keeps us nicely off-balance, as the film opens with a 911 call, the segues into a bank heist, only to have that turn into something darker and more sinister. The cast helps lift this up, and there’s a nice twist towards the end. The gore effects are nicely done, and the film does have some nicely creepy moments. Worth checking out. Now showing on Netflix and available on Blu-ray/DVD.
