P2

A sex-gore flop

VIDEO: Watch the trailer for P2.

In most sex-gore fests, the filmmakers toss you a teaser up front where some chump or babe gets beheaded, impaled, or eviscerated. Not so in this kooky hack job (the brilliant title refers to a parking-garage level) from director Franck Khalfoun and writer/producer Alexandre Aja (Haute Tension). They get right into it. Angela (Rachel Nichols), an office grunt in a tony Park Avenue tower, is last to leave on Christmas Eve. But the parking attendant, Thomas (Wes Bentley), has the hots for her. So he abducts her, kills a few random others, and professes his love endlessly. Why he goes to such demonic extremes (why not a simple dinner date?) is never explained. Nonetheless, Bentley and Nichols (reminiscent of a younger Jodie Foster and crammed into a cleavage-busting gown) do wonders with a property otherwise as appealing as an empty parking garage on Christmas Eve. 98 minutes | Boston Common + Fenway + Fresh Pond + Suburbs
