P2 (2007) *** out of 5 asterisks
Director: Franck Khalfoun
Starring: Rachel Nichols, Wes Bentley
The whole film takes place in an underground parking garage and hence the "P2" title. I was expecting another formulaic horror/thriller, but it turned out to be surprisingly good with interesting plot twists and suspense. Also what helps set this movie apart from similar genre films is that you won't find any stereotypical screaming, frantically-running "damsel-in-distress" here -- the character Rachel Nichols plays is not one to be trifled with. While it does occasionally fall into formula and you can probably predict the ending, it's still a better-than-average horror/thriller that's worth the rental.
