Like desert nomad or union film projectionist, the security beat at an office parking garage is the kind of lonely, alienating career that doesn’t always allow for the adequate development of adroit social skills. It is perhaps unsurprising, then, when Thomas the rent-a-cop (Bentley) takes to stalking buxom corporate drone Angela Bridges (Nichols) and waylays her on Christmas Eve, intent on making her love him by any means necessary. 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?
