Trivia

In Spanish, phonetically, the title "P2" sound exactly "pe dos". That means: farts. Spain distributors opted for the more generic "Parking 2". See more »

Goofs

When Angela stops the elevator, Thomas uses a fire hose to flood her elevator car. When Angela reengages the elevator car, you can see the water draining out of the car as it drops from the outside. In reality there is plenty of room on all four sides of the car for the water to drain down. The elevator car would not have filled up with water the way it did. The water should have drained out the storm water drain at the bottom of the shaft. See more »

A creepy, solid horror flick
18 November 2007 | by guyfromjerzeeSee all my reviews

I admit, I'm usually rough on many horror movies that come out nowadays, because...well...they suck. "P2," on the other hand, has many exciting moments and I was engaged the whole way through. The acting is solid. The actress who plays the lead does a great job at conveying real terror. I also like that she wasn't the typical big-breasted female lead who seems ripped from the pages of Maxim magazine. She is attractive, yes, but not your traditional Hollywood beauty, who's cast simply so she can have a scene where she's taking a shower and has to flee from the villain naked, with her gargantuan boobs bouncing in close-up. I loved Wes Bentley in "American Beauty," and was quite disappointed to find out that he fell off the radar after delivering that great performance as Ricky Fits. He would only pop up occasionally in braindead slasher flicks like "Soul Survivors." In "P2" he was given a chance to redeem himself, and that he did. He is a perfectly creepy villain, especially with those dark, piercing eyes. The movie is not without flaws. It has some of the expected fake scare moments and, without giving anything away, let's just say that I'm SURE it would take less than 20 minutes for the cops to show up after you make a 9-1-1 call. The filmmakers do a great job at setting up a creepy tone, starting off the film by playing "Santa Baby" over the opening credit sequence. That's ten times creepier than, say, playing a standard horror movie score. If you're sick and tired of many of the braindead teen slasher flicks that have been hitting theaters lately, this should come as a refreshing surprise. I think this film is sadly underrated.
