P2 (2007)
-As Seen on Netflix-
Starring: Wes Bentley, Rachel Nichols, Simon Reynolds
Summary: A young woman turns down a lonely security guard and ends up his prisoner and soon, she's on the run once he's locked them both inside the building's parking garage.

My Thoughts: P2 was great. It doesn't take long for the movie to dive right into the plot and that's what I liked most about the film. Most horror movies take forever to get to the point, but this got straight to the point and only went up from there. While it did have it's down points, what movie doesn't? And for a good 20% of the movie, I did think it was more of a thriller than a horror film, but I was more than half into it, I got the point because it got gory.

At one point, a dog is stabbed and a guy is rammed into a wall by a car. So, it is pretty safe to call this a horror movie. Another notable thing about P2 is the acting. There are only a handful of characters in the movie, but the way the film is set up allows you to really connect with all the ones that are actually there. Take Angela for instance. At first I believed she was an uptight, business executive and 15 minutes later I was cheering and rooting for her to kick the villain's ass. I emphasized with her and I was with her for the long haul. Thomas, our lonely security guard turned psychopath is also one who we see many sides of. I tried to see his side of the dice, I thought he was nice guy and tried to look past the kidnapping and all, but then he had to run a man down and he lost all of my respect after that. However, a movie that can make me feel so much for all these characters and the plot, in my opinion, makes it a good movie. 

I must be honest, I thought it was going to be really bad, but it surpassed my expectations and was a solid, highly underrated horror film.
