It's Christmas Eve. The last employee to leave her office, ambitious corporate climber Angela (Rachel Nichols) arrives in the deserted parking garage only to discover her car won't start. She's relieved when Thomas (Wes Bentley), a seemingly friendly security guard, comes along and offers to help. Unable to get the engine to start, he invites Angela to share a small Christmas meal with him. She laughs off the invitation but it quickly becomes clear her situation is no laughing matter. Angered by her refusal, the psychopathic Thomas knocks her out and ties her up in his office. Coming to, Angela realizes that the only way she will live to see Christmas morning is to find a way to escape from P2.
A woman who is the last to leave her office on Christmas Eve must rely on her wits to survive when she is trapped in a parking garage with a deranged security guard.
Cast: Rachel Nichols, Wes Bentley, Simon Reynolds, Stephanie Moore
Good little thriller. Light on the gore, but showcases two strong lead performances and an absolutely brilliantly pathetic yet menacing villain. Only problem would be that it is slightly predictable, but the claustrophobic tension and plot escalation are rather delicious even without a particularly groundbreaking plot. Overall, a strong recommendation!
OMG. If there was ever a textbook way to show film students how to destroy any character empathy, suspense or fear in a film, the first ten minutes of P2 are it. There might be more, but life is too short to find out, so. I wrote this then looked for something else to watch.
Fantastic film. I loved it!
Actually really enjoyed it, kept me hooked the whole time so it deserves 5 skulls.
Great spin on cat and mouse thriller. Gorey, atmospheric and in my opinion, well acted.
