[Highly rated reviewer]An above average horror/thriller offering from director Franck Khalfoun that's quite entertaining and rather stylish in parts and one that once you start watching you just can't turn off. A simple tale Angela (Rachel Nichols) is a workaholic young executive working late in New York city on Christmas Eve. One of the last people to leave the building before joining her family for the seasonal festivities she takes the lift down to the parking lot only to find that her car won't start. Enter Thomas (Wes Bentley) a security guard who turns out to be a psychopath obsessed with Angela, and although initially tries to help her start her car in an attempt to gain her trust ,eventually shows his true colours when he detains her against her will, and a rollercoaster ride begins as they play cat and mouse with each other in the confines of the deserted car park. A tad gory on times, it creates some suspense filled and truly tense moments as we see Angela fight back and attempt to escape from Thomas and his huge and rather vicious dog Rocky. Wesley who played Ricky Fitts in American Beauty has that screen prescence to carry off this role perfectly and Ms Nichols attacks her part with spirit and real enthusiasm. Fans of this genre will certainly find something to enjoy in this one, and even though it has it's predictable moments at just over an hour and a half is just enough to keep you interested.

P1, P2,P3 pee yourself if you like! enjoy a good movieBy Pammie28 (37 reviews) , 19 Oct 2013Not a bad movie. A few annoying moments in there but overall a good watch. I have seen this movie before and didn't think i could watch it a second time but i enjoyed it as much as the first time. Give it a go :-)
watch and enjoyBy kat59 (96 reviews) , 12 Oct 2013I saw this years ago and thought it was really good and on second viewing I havn't changed my mind. the psycho is very convincing and the story keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout. I don't think this was a big budget film but it doesn't suffer for it.
Gave up after half an hourBy Sammy1973 (303 reviews) from King's Lynn , 10 Jul 2013I don't like this film. It is slow, unoriginal, boring, predictable. I didn't like the characters and turned it off after about half an hour.
Effing AmazingBy MichaelWootton (2 reviews) , 29 Apr 2013I enjoy lying in bed at night, watching films like these. Fantastic acting, and although it is a slow kind of film, I was on the edge of my seat (well, bed) when watching it. I loved it.
Great thrillerBy a customer , 14 Apr 2013Fantastic film, not your typical. Good acting, good story, really worth a watch. I saw this film when I came out years ago with few expectations, and was really surprised at how much I enjoyed it. There's just something about it that is different to all the other ones of this genre.
