| Spoilers possible. An eerie little number
It is hard to avoid letting slip a few spoilers here, given the plot, but I have tried not to ruin it for people. There is enough in the story for different interpretations to carry the day. Ray Winstone plays a working man returning to an underground parking station very late one night, where he had left his vehicle. When he is unable to get out of the place via the boom gate, the empty site and a disembodied voice assume menacing proportions. But there may be more to be scared of here. The Man, played by Winstone, experiences a range of perfectly natural emotions re his dilemma and things turn nasty. Or seem to. Is it happening for real; is it in his head; is the place haunted? Does Retributon strike us all,out of the blue, like this? And for what reason? The wonderful David Tennant, arriving late on the scene, plays the Night Manager. It's a small and possibly thankless role, but I like to think he is representing Sanity and Calm, in comparison with what is induced in Winstone. Whatever, it's lovely to see Tennant and to hear the accent. Yes, I am easily won over. Winstone is also very effective and convincing. All up, a slightly creepy 10 minutes or so. Worth it, though. Shows what a dramatic scenario can be achieved in a short time span, with a decent premise, good performances, atmospheric sets and lighting and snappy editing.
