Consensus: P2 is full of gore, but low on suspense, featuring a cat-and-mouse plot has been done many times before.

P2 doesn't have the grisly intensity of Aja's other work, in spite of a few moments of cartoonish gore.

Mark Rahner

P2 may be bad enough to become some other type of classic than the holiday kind.

Such a fun over the top woman in peril horror movie that even the worst aspects of it compliment the experience.

Bentley plays the role of funny, cagey psychopath quite well, and the film packs more laughs than frights. What woman wouldn't be interested after his homicidal message of love?

There's some ghoulish humor in P2, and a couple of scares, but it's little more than the umpteenth variation of the woman-locked-in-a-house plot.

The idea of a delusional man holding a beautiful woman captive isn't exactly original, but in the skilled hands of screenwriters Alexandre Aja and Grégory Levasseur the result is a thoroughly engrossing psycho-thriller that never lets up.

P2 feels like a vehicle lost in an after-hours parking facility, constantly backing up, shifting gears and generally speeding around in circles in a vain attempt to get somewhere.

[A] miscast, misdirected botch of a can't-miss plot.

Dan Jolin
Empire Magazine

Unscary, uninteresting tosh from people who should know better.

P2 is simple but also quite effective. It keeps the action very enclosed and mostly believable. Sure there are your usual moments of generic horror bad luck,… More
