The story centers on a corporate climber who gets stuck working late on Christmas Eve and finds herself the target of an unhinged security guard. With no help in sight, the woman must overcome physical and psychological challenges to survive. Written by
Make no mistake this is an Alexander Aja film. Like his masterpiece High Tension and his mega disturbing remake of Hills Have Eyes P2 aims for the throat and never lets go. Although the film is a little absurd and over the top in places it still makes for a fantastically entertaining watch. The film is polished ans stylish and features a powerhouse performance from rachael Nichols. she stars as Angela an overworked young business woman who becomes the victim of an obsessive security guard who murders in her name. What starts out as a timidly intense little thriller eventually turns into an all out splatterfest with blood galore and tension to boot. Audience members were clapping and some ran for the doors. P2 is a surprising new addition to an otherwise old concept. It's energetic and scary and just a lil silly.
