Trivia

There is a subtle reference to the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968). Not only is the pilot door signal a nearly exact copy of HAL's eye, also you hear the famous quote "I'm sorry, but I cannot do that, Dave" See more »

4 people win the trip of a lifetime to New York - or is it?
3 August 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Wasn't quite sure what to expect from this bearing in mind it was shot on a budget in Cardiff with no "big names". Having said that this film exceeded my expectations. The plot revolves around 4 people winning an all expenses paid trip to New York on board a private jet courtesy of a social networking site All2gether.com. Once on board and having to relinquish all their mobile phones, it's time to play the in-flight entertainment ... and this is where the fun begins. With the cockpit locked and the mysterious "Alligator" pulling the strings, things soon start to heat up & passengers begin to turn on each other. It's marketed as a horror/thriller and they've managed to keep the right level of suspense & gore, some movies just seem to rely on as much blood & splintering bones as possible in the hope it makes a movie - Panic Button doesn't do this, there were enough twists & turns to keep you on the edge of your seat. "Dave" played by Mike Jibson (Cemetery Junction, The Bank Job) has some of the best lines and "Max" played by Jack Gordon (Fish Tank) displays his rather impressive acting skills. Panic Button definitely hit my button and I would say this is a must for any horror fans.
