P2 (2007)

If you want an alternative Christmas movie this year instead of the usual "Die Hard", you may want to give this one a try.

Rachel Nichols, who was the spiteful blonde in "The Woods", does a great job as the victim who is trapped by an insane car park attendant on Christmas Eve.

Wes Bentley, who plays the aforementioned psychopath, also gives a good performance but somehow is not quite in the Christian Bale league to which his character aspires.

Everything is done really well and, although it is very reminiscent of TV films like "Final Jeopardy" (1985), it is actually quite an original story for once with a stronger than usual female lead.

It certainly has enough action and a brisk pace that keeps you from getting bored. It's not really a horror film though and isn't particularly scary. It's more of a thriller with some excellent gory moments.

I'll give it 6 out of 10. Rachel Nichols has some excellent cleavage on show too for those of you who appreciate such things. I know I do.
