Red Eye (2005)

Wes Craven directs Rachel McAdams, Cillian Murphy and Brian Cox in this thriller where a hotel employee is trapped on a flight with a hitman who needs her to make an important call.

The Hitchcockian war of words and wits in economy class never really takes off. Luckily when we are off the plane Wes Craven finds his groove. Once McAdams is playing cat-and-mouse with a knife wielding psycho around a mansion sized house the entertainment comes. The Scream-esque finale is near orgasmic after a slow and underwhelming build up. Good cast.
