Angela is a busy business woman in a rush to get home for her family’s holiday party on Christmas Eve. But when her car won’t start and her cell phone won’t work in the parking garage along comes Thomas the friendly security guard to her rescue. But when beautiful Angela turns down Thomas’ invitation to dinner things turn ugly and she finds herself locked in the parking garage with a man who won’t take No for an answer.
Wes Bentley (Thomas), Rachel Nichols (Angela).
A bit slow at lift-off, things get moving nicely after a brief bit of character development. After being turned down by Angela, Thomas quickly turns into your less than brilliant run-of-the-mill nutball, terrorizing Angela, knocking her out, tying her up, and dressing her up nice and sexy. Fortunately Nichols is a pleasure to view which only added to the movie. This isn’t much different than a bunch of other serial-killer stalker vs. sexy hot woman who doesn’t like him flicks. But originality isn’t why you would watch this, it is the action and terror that make it interesting and there is a good amount of that. The action moves well and keeps this one mildly interesting. Although not as terrifying as some of this genre, this one is pretty good.
Kudos to Bentley who put on a wonderful performance. The guy will seriously give you the creeps! Nichols did a decent job of acting but without her physical assets as a compliment she wouldn’t have been quite so interesting.
The film was probably a low budget flick and using a parking garage as the main set made for a fairly mundane background however, the film didn’t feel low budget at all. What few special effects there were are nicely done. Soundtrack, dialog and camera work were all good as well.
If you enjoy a decent thriller or horror this is a pretty good film worth a spot in the top half of your Must See list.
Violence, gore, scary bits, and some foul language but nothing super bad so older teens and above should be fine with this one.
P2 is no longer showing in any Littleton, Colorado movie theatres.
