P2 | 2007 | R | - 5.9.6

A young woman (Rachel Nichols) anxious to make it home for Christmas with her family finds herself working late in her big city office building. But when she tries to leave, her car won't start, the parking garage is locked down and finally all the lights are turned off. Unable to reach anyone from the outside, she finds herself at the mercy of the only other person in the garage, a deranged security guard (Wes Bentley) who thinks he's in love with her. Also with Simon Reynolds and Grace Lynn Kung. Directed by Franck Khalfoun. [1:38]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - We see a videotape of an unconscious woman and a man puts lipstick on her lips and caresses her neck and partially clothed breasts (the woman in the video is watching the video, and becomes enraged and breaks the TV set).
 A woman wears a low-cut dress that reveals cleavage, bare shoulders and back throughout the movie.
 A man apologizes to a woman and it is implied that he made an unwelcome advance toward her after having had too much alcohol to drink. A man accuses a man of trying to rape a woman. A man talks to a woman about love, infidelities and forgiveness. A man appears to be jealous and asks a woman many questions about her boyfriend/fiancé and their relationship.

VIOLENCE/GORE 9 - A man pushes another man who is taped onto a chair toward a wall using his car, he reverses the car, then speeds toward the man in the chair slamming him into the wall (we see the man's body crunched between the car and wall and his abdomen opens up spilling out his intestines and a lot of blood); the man in the car then speeds toward him one more time and crushes his head into the wall (we see more blood and matter spurt and splatter and blood sprays onto the outside of the car windshield).
 A man strikes a man repeatedly in the head and face with a flashlight (we see blood spurt and trickle down the man's face, and blood sprays on the attacker's face and shirt).
 A woman is chased through a parking garage by a guard dog, the woman hides in a car, the dog jumps through the window trying to bite her, she strikes it with a tire iron, and the dog bites the woman on the leg (we see blood and we see bloody puncture wounds later); the woman then stabs the dog through the head with the pointed end of the tire iron and she twists it (blood sprays drenching the woman, and we hear crunching and whimpering) and we see the dog lying dead.
 A puddle of gasoline is ignited, the flames engulf a man, he thrashes and screams, and a car explodes.
 A handcuffed woman stabs a man in the eye with a nail file (he screams and pulls the file out), then strangles him with the chain of the handcuffs on her wrists, and handcuffs him to the door of a car.
 A woman stabs a man in the back of the shoulder with a fork (we see blood on his shirt), and he yells and pulls the fork out (we hear a crunch).
 Water begins to fill an elevator car where a woman is hiding: the roof of the elevator breaks under the weight of the water and a dead body falls into the elevator.
 A woman rips a fingernail off her finger while scratching at the ground (we see it pull away from her finger), and she then pulls the dangling nail off (we hear it rip and her finger bleeds).
 A man searches for a woman, she approaches him from behind and sprays him in the face with something from an aerosol can (he yells and is incapacitated for a moment).
 A car crashes into a large pole, the car spins and flips over and the driver is slumped over the steering wheel unconscious. A woman speeds through a parking garage in a car, another car crashes into her car's side, and she speeds away from the crash and runs against walls. Two cars charge toward each other in a game of chicken, and one swerves just before impact.
 The lights of a parking garage are turned off and a woman is trapped inside; she uses her cell phone light to try to find her way back to a stairway, she trips and falls on the floor, and when she gets up she is grabbed from behind by a man who presses a cloth on her face, she struggles but then succumbs to the drug, which renders her unconscious.
 A woman is stunned by a stun gun; she moans and is placed gently onto the floor, where she is stunned again.
 We see a videotape of a man groping an unconscious woman: he puts lipstick on her lips and caresses her neck and partially clothed breasts (the woman in the video is watching the video, and becomes enraged and breaks the TV set).
 A man drags a dead body away from the scene of a murder.
 We see a man gagged and taped into a chair, and another man tells a woman that she should hit him with a flashlight to teach him a lesson (the woman refuses). A woman wakes up and finds herself chained by the ankle to a chair and her clothing has been changed. We see a woman locked in the trunk of a car, she manages to open the trunk lid and we see her handcuffed to the arm of the lid.
 A guard dog snaps and snarls at a woman and pulls at its chain trying to get to her (he is unable to reach her but she is frightened). A guard dog snaps and snarls at a woman, she retrieves her purse, the dog grabs it and the two struggle over it.
 A woman locks herself in an elevator between floors. A woman breaks security cameras using an ax.
 A man yells at a woman in several scenes.
 A woman walks through an empty parking garage late at night and toward her car (nothing happens).
 A woman vomits on the floor (we hear her gag and see goo).

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
