    New York at Christmas. A gloomy, deserted underground car park after hours. When the young lawyer Angela finally wants to leave for the family celebration, her car won't start. The young security guard Thomas offers to help, but quickly turns out to be a maniac who doesn't want to spend the celebration of love alone. A bloody fight for survival begins for Angela...

    Alexandre Aja (HIGH TENSION) and Franck Khalfoun (MANIAC) shock with close-up horror, with tension, action and brute force.
