Dir: Franck Khalfoun
With: Rachel Nichols, Wes Bentley
Franck Khalfoun's shlock horror is the latest in the rapidly growing young-women-being-terrorised-by-striplight genre. Rachel Nichols is the blonde simply asking for trouble by being hard-working, ambitious, and parking her car under the office on Christmas Eve. Keen to get home to her family, she first runs into car trouble, then a whole heap of nastiness in the form of psycho security guard Thomas (Wes Bentley, previously impressive as the troubled son in American Beauty). Khalfoun wastes no time in setting up the story, only to find he has nowhere left to go but headlong into predictability. Though more slickly packaged than most films of its kind, it's sickeningly violent, overblown, and about as much fun as getting off a 10-hour flight only to find you've forgotten where the car is parked.
