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.

Really enjoyed Cold Prey. Great atmosphere, good kills and suspense. Such a product of its time, features crappy early 2000s rock. But still good!
Cold Prey was an okay film. It is a fairly standard slasher that doesn't break any new ground. It has a solid but cliched story. It does have a good cast and I saw nothing wrong with pacing or direction. Gore is minimal but that doesn't bother me. I can't think of anything that actually detracts from the film but I can't think of any reason I would go out of my way to recommend it, either. I've been watching slasher films for nearly 35 years - I have walked down this path many times before. The best that I can say is if you like slasher films you certainly could do far, far worse than Cold Prey.
ski mask is a little cheesy but other than that Donkey Kong's great
nice slasher flick.
