Stalker in a parking garage. You've got to give the makers ofP2credit: They've tapped a universal source of anxiety and stretched it out into a feature-length film. Underneath a Manhattan skyscraper, chic businesswoman Angela (Rachel Nichols) is knocking off for the Christmas holiday. Everybody else has cleared out of the garage--everybody but freaky-friendly attendant Tom (Wes Bentley), and his little dog too. Before long, Tom makes it clear that he'd like to have Angela for holiday dinner, whatever that might mean. Our heroine must summon all her resources, and the challenge of a low-cut dinner gown, to fight back.P2(no, it's not the sequel toP) at least allows Angela a measure of common sense, as she actually thinks of some logical ways to fight back, and director Franck Khalfoun (working from an idea byHaute Tensionguys Alexandre Aja and Gregory Levasseur) does indeed get the most out of the parking garage location. But the movie's at a loss to make these two characters interesting in any way, even at the Coyote vs. Roadrunner level. Tom's little quirks, like miming a dance to Elvis Presley's "Blue Christmas," feel like a desperate attempt to add flavor to an otherwise standard-issue creepo. Bentley (best known forAmerican Beauty) does have the face of an obsessive, and Nichols has the face (and did we mention the cleavage?) of a movie star, so they're not hard to believe. But most of the time this movie is stuck on the wrong floor.--Robert Horton

After calling her sister to let her know that she is finally on her way to the family Christmas party, Angela prepares to leave the building. However, when she finally gets to her car on P2, it won't start. Thomas …

In "P2," Rachel Nichols is an overworked and underappreciated corporate do-all who just wants to spend Christmas Eve with her family. Wes Bentley is a lonely parking garage guard intent on having her spend Christmas Eve with him instead, no matter how many handcuffs, security cameras or guard dogs it will take.     The story is pretty average as far as psycho stalker flicks go, albeit with a little more humor and a lot less gore. Bentley's sick mind tries to justify everything …
