Summit Entertainment has sent me loads of goodies to promote their new thriller (and first major film release) P2. It opened on November 9th to a mass of good reviews.

I've had a fear of parking garages ever since Witness and I don't think this film will help matters any.

I wonder if Wes Bentley ever gets dates anymore? He certainly won't get anyone to ever attend his Christmas party after this!

The trailer is well done, with holiday music never sounding so spooky. It looks like a tart alternative to the fluffy Fred Claus fare.

What follows is the official press release, trailer, and a few stills from the film.


“Swift and stealthy. Taking the bus to work suddenly seems like a very good idea.”
- The New York Times, Jeannette Catsoulis

“One of the scariest movies of the year! ‘P2' does to parking garages what ‘Psycho' did to taking a shower and what ‘Jaws' did to swimming in the ocean.”
- FOX-TV, Shawn Edwards

“GIRL-POWER revenge story not often seen on screen.”
- US WEEKLY, Jeffrey Epstein

“A thriller that actually thrills.” - AIN'T IT COOL NEWS, Moriarty

“Slasher ‘P2” finds new level of horror.”

It's Christmas Eve. Angela Bridges (Rachel Nichols- “Alias” and CHARLIE WILSON'S WAR), an ambitious young executive, works late before she leaves for her family's holiday party. When she gets down to the parking garage, she discovers that her car won't start. The garage is deserted and her cell phone doesn't get a signal underground.

When Thomas (Wes Bentley- AMERICAN BEAUTY), a friendly security guard, comes along and offers to help, Angela nervously accepts his gesture of good will. Soon after a failed attempt to start her car, he invites her to stay and share a small Christmas dinner he's preparing in the parking office, but she laughs it off. Angela doesn't realize this is no laughing matter – Thomas has been watching her closely...for months. His dinner invitation is not optional.

If Angela wants to live to see Christmas morning, she must find a way to escape from level P2 of the parking garage.

This is the backdrop for Summit Entertainment's new thriller “P2,” a suspenseful nail-biter exploring the fears of being trapped in a dark place and stalked by an obsessed voyeur. In the vein of suspenseful cat-and-mouse thrillers such as WAIT UNTIL DARK, “P2” takes the fear of the underground to a whole new level.

Under the direction of Franck Khalfoun, this taut suspense thriller combines the creative team of producer Alexandre Aja (THE HILLS HAVE EYES - writer/director), Gregory Levasseur (HIGH TENSION - writer), Patrick Wachsberger (MR. AND MRS. SMITH - producer) and executive producers Bob Hayward, David Garrett, and Alix Taylor.
