P2 clip reveals stock scares
There's a clip online for P2, the horror film from Franck Khalfoun which he has co-written along with Grégory Levasseur and Alexandre Aja who previously brought us the excellent Haute Tension (Switchblade Romance) (Filmstalker review) and The Hills Have Eyes (Filmstalker review) remake.
So you can imagine how high the hopes would be for this film, especially when I heard the plot and thought this might have something unique in store, then that teaser came, and now this clip, and I'm wondering if it's going to be as good as I first thought.
Number one, the item that represents rescue just out of reach of the person in danger. In this case the phone.
Number two, the scene of the person in danger trapped while the source of the danger gets closer and closer, of course the source doesn't realise that the person is there, and at the last moment the camera cuts from the person to show the moment the source appears. Quick cut back and the person is gone. Amazing considering we've just been shown them trapped.
Now a clip like that on its own could well be taken out of context, but after that terrible teaser I'm wondering if this is going to work out as well as I first thought.
