'P2'
(Rachel Nichols, Wes Bentley, et al / DVD / R / (2007) 2008 / Summit Entertainment)

Overview: It's Christmas Eve, when even the most voracious corporate climbers generally head home by dinner time. But not ANGELA (Rachael Nichols). She's the last one left at the office, determined to close one more deal before the holiday. The long hours she keeps will have an impact, but not the kind she's been hoping for.

DVD Verdict: For those who are wondering, "P2" simply refers to a parking garage level. Of course, horror movies can make just about any locale sound sinister! It is Christmas eve and a young executive (played by Rachel Nichols) is putting in extra hours to close some deals. She ends up being the last one to leave the building (or try to!). The bldg is planned to be locked-down completely in between Christmas & New Year's. To her dismay, she finds that her car won't start. The only other people in the bldg are a couple of security guards. Unfortunately for her, one of them (portrayed by Wes Bentley) is a complete whacko who also has a crush on her. That's right, folks, this dude goes way beyond stalking. I mean, he passes "stalking" in the HOV lane & zooms right along. He has a warped sense of both reality & morality, and this does not bode well for our damsel in distress. Nichols and Bentley both turn in fine performances, which is an especially good thing in this movie as there are scarcely any other characters in the whole film. We have empathy for Nichols as the workaholic who is thrown into a nightmare without end, and Bentley is way spooky as the psycho security guard. He does a great job of going back & forth from calm, cool & collected to having violent, agitated outbursts. On the downside, after portraying such a mentally unbalanced misogynistic creep, Bentley may have great difficulty ever finding a date for the rest of his life. But that, of course, is beside the point! If you're looking for a good psychological thriller, this one is certainly worth a look.
