Cold Prey

Cold Prey

Directed by Roar Uthaug

In this Norwegian horror hit, five snowboarders are stalked by a psychotic slasher after seeking refuge in an abandoned ski lodge. Instead of sticking to slasher formulas, director Roar Uthaug plays with audience expectations, serving up an icy, unpredictable thriller that ushered in the Scandinavian horror wave two years before LET THE RIGHT ONE IN. Fangoria called COLD PREY, a "conceptually rich slasher film" whose "snowbound setting offers a feeling of inescapable dread beyond that of its killer." The film's success led to a sequel and a prequel. Contains strong language.

Could've/Would've/Should've is the best way to descibe this flick in terms of the script, the directing, the acting, and the editing. What you are left with is a standard by-the-book slahser which is not bad just not a solid feeling flick for the viewer. I do agree with the other reviewers in terms of "the final girl" being a mold breaker for the typical final girl.

It's quite slow paced, but does a good job with the character development. It hits its stride after the first (and best) kill.

Good movie. The only thing was the final girl’s scream sounded like a wheezed noise instead of anything resembling a scream.
