    From Bloody-Disgusting.com:

    "The story centers on a corporate climber (Nichols) who gets stuck working late on Christmas Eve and finds herself the target of an unhinged security guard (Bentley). With no help in sight, the woman must overcome physical and psychological challenges to survive."

    and from Fangoria :

    "Fango just got word from Summit Entertainment that it will release the suspense-chiller P2 (which we last told you about here) in over 2,000 U.S. theaters November 9. Marking the directorial debut of HILLS HAVE EYES remake editor Franck Khalfoun, who scripted with HILLS� Alexandre Aja and Gr�gory Levasseur, the movie stars Rachel (THE WOODS) Nichols as Angela, a young executive who becomes stranded in an underground parking garage when her car won�t start and she can�t get a cell phone signel. She�s approached by a security guard (GHOST RIDER�s Wes Bentley), who at first seems friendly but soon turns menacing, forcing Angela to fight for her life. Look for a feature story on P2 in Fango #268, on sale in October. �Michael Gingold"

    That synopsis reminds me of a movie that scared the shit out of me when i was about 9.

    Trapped (1986 TV)
    "Kathleen Quinlan is a woman working late in her locked High-Rise office building who along with Bruce Abbot struggle to elude a killer (Ben Loggins) trying to kill them."

    I used to have Trapped on VHS. It was decent. And I think I may still have the VHS somewhere in my house.

    Sounds like it could be a good film. Also sounds like it could be a bad film. Anyone heard what to expect?

    "A new level of fear." :lol: :rolleyes:

    Decent poster, but is Nichols illustrated onto it? She looks a lot darker than in the stills. Wish she still held the axe.

    Update: The trailer is up at the site now, BUT I found that it gave away far too much of the film. If you can just skip the trailer and wait a few more weeks for the film itself, it may be for the better.

    I wanna see this one. Heard some very good things about it plus there's Rachel Nichols for eye candy in case it ends up being bad. Doesn't seem like I can lose on this one.

    Phew! Thankfully not another remake. Instead, it's a woman in peril at night. Thank God for originality! :lol:

    It looks good enough.... and Alexander Aja is (even though not directly) behind it! :)

    The teaser peaked my interest, the trailer didn't impress me too much though. But I agree, even though Aja is not directing it, just the fact that his name is behind it has me looking forward to it.

    So, this comes out today, anyone going? I'm probably going in a little while here. My friend wants to see Fred Claus, but screw that, he can see that with someone else.

    Ebert gave the movie 3 Stars. I don't really care about reviews, but that's odd coming from him. Although he does still stick it to the movie by saying that there are "maybe 3 or 4 dozen movies he'd recommend over P2 this fall.
