Trivia

When they were filming Franka running through a tube train, the cameraman behind her ran straight into one of the posts on the train. See more »

Goofs

Franka Potente's character falls asleep accidentally and thus is left at Charing Cross after closing time. When she awakes and later on luckily jumps on another train passing through, her rude admirer is there to greet her (and then tries to rape her). He would have had not only to stay hidden all this time while following her, but also would have had to accept being locked in with her, plus would have had to wait for her while she was frantically trying to get out only then to return downstairs trying to catch this last unannounced train.

Not a great deal of sense, but reasonably entertaining
5 June 2005 | by (Glasgow, Scotland) – See all my reviews

Brit horror successfully marries suspense and gore to create a more than decent movie.

Franka Potente is Kate, a socialite on her way to a party in London where George Clooney (Yes really) is believed to be hanging at and where she will attempt to seduce him (Yup, I'm not kidding).

However, she falls asleep at the subway station and misses the last train, leaving her trapped inside. Jeremy Sheffield's Guy is pursuing her though, and when a train finally arrives (Yes, the logic's already disintegrating), he appears out of nowhere and tries to rape her. Unfortunately for him, there is a real killer in the underground who drags him off her and wounds him fatally.

The rest of the movie is killer-pursues-Kate.

Quite frankly the logic in this one was never meant to be particularly strong. It's not even obvious that she fell asleep while waiting for the train, and instead it could have been mindgames. And indeed, mindgames seem to be the only explanation for some of the slightly ludicrous events which occur in the first half.

Nonetheless, this movie is about running away from the bad guy, whose appearance and identity imply he's 'not normal' (Are they ever), and to this end the film does a decent enough job. Once the bizarre first half hour of silliness is past, it is simple enough fare, with more than a hint of severe gore.

There's little more that can be said, such is the basic nature of this, but if you accept the intrinsic daftness of some of it, you'll get a reasonable kick out it if you like the genre.

Seen worse.
