Heading home late one night after a party, Kate falls asleep while waiting for her train. She awakens to find herself trapped in the London underground, with all the doors locked for the evening.

Trivia

Kelly Scott didn't see Sean Harris in full make-up as Craig until the sequence where Craig operates on Scott's character Mandy was filmed. As a result, many of Scott's reactions of fear and confusion were genuine. See more »

Goofs

When the train that Kate boarded at Charing Cross comes to a halt in the tunnel, she goes to the front of the train where the car number above the door to the front cab reads 96101. After the lights have gone out and the nasty boyfriend has activated the emergency lights, Kate returns to the same front cab door and the car number has changed to 96107. See more »

Not a great deal of sense, but reasonably entertaining
5 June 2005 | by Danny_G13See 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.
