P2 (2007)

Franck Khalfoun directs Rachel Nichols, Wes Bentley and Simon Reynolds in this horror where a business woman is kidnapped by a psycho in an underground car park.

Slick and histrionic, this has some nice bursts of gore and mania. It doesn’t build its tension well though. Often when a neat set piece is set-up the heroine escapes death by some unseen fortune. It is fine for the monster to have supernatural elements but the final girl shouldn’t be able to disappear into thin air to save the script from forward planning solutions. By the second half the director seems more interested in soaking a bratty Rachel Nichols cleavage than delivering a convincing showdown.
