Product Description

Five teenage snowboarders are forced to spend the night in a mysteriously abandoned ski lodge. Except somebody – or something – already lives there. It is huge, savage and unstoppable…and now it’s pissed off.  But if you think this is going to be the usual ‘trapped teens stalked by a maniac’ movie, you’re dead wrong: From the first chilling kill to the final horrific twist, prepare yourself for the smart, intense and award-winning European sensation that has terrified audiences around the world and put the edge back into the body-count genre.

Amazon.com

A hit with European moviegoers in 2007, the Norwegian horror film Cold Prey is a modestly successful tribute to Stateside slasher films of the '80s and early '90s. The film's core premise follows the tried-and-true tenets of the genre--a gaggle of young and attractive people are waylaid at a remote location, which turns out to be the lair of a homicidal maniac who dispatches them with ruthless precision--but Cold Prey benefits greatly from director Roar Uthaug's muscular direction, as well as its central location, a remote and snowbound lodge. It also benefits from an emphasis on suspense and atmosphere over gory carnage (though there's a sufficient amount of the latter), and actress Ingrid Bolso Berdal makes for an appealing and resourceful lead. Longtime slasher aficionados will probably predict the final outcome long before it occurs, but the film remains a refreshingly retro alternative to the dour spate of torture-heavy features dominating horror in recent years. The subtitled DVD includes several making-of featurettes, as well as an animatic for an alternate ending and an amusing pair of Uthag's short films, including a faux exploitation trailer. --Paul Gaita

Where are all the "Hit" movies I am supposed to be getting on PRIME?
IzzyReal
This second part actually didn't hurt my feelings on the movie, but I really thought this was going to be a bad film... with subtitles too.
CPR
I enjoy a good horror flick every now and then but the standard "slasher" movie just doesn't do it for me.

I popped this one in not expecting much. More straight to video drek from Starz I thought, formerly known as the once great Anchor Bay. I watched not expecting much, & to my suprise, it just kept getting better & better. This one really & truely is worth watching. This is slasher the way it used to be done... the way that it should be done. Now a quick warning for that certain few that can't get into subtitled films. This is in fact a foreign film & is in fact in a different language. The acting is great, the suspense, the horror, the villain, the blood & guts all done top notch, hats off to the makers of this film. This is a truely spooky flick that has you at the edge of your seat, well worth at least a rental, I was certainly impressed, & I think you will be too. Definately check this one out!!!

This is one of the best horror/slasher films I have seen in a long time. Half of the new films that come out in this category haven't been so good lately. This one finally does everything right that a horror film needs. I purchased this film a week ago and am extremely happy with my purchase. Now, if only the American horror films could follow this path, then we wouldn't have any more terrible horror films like "Cabin Fever 2".

This is a well done movie, with talented young actors and great photography. It just suffers from plot monotony. A group of young people get stranded in an out of the way location, find an abandoned place to stay. They pair up to have sex and procede to get killed off one by one until one person is left who decides to get angry instead of scared, fights back and saves him or herself. Its just like a trip to your favorite fast food restaurant - not bad, just more of the same. Until you find a finger in your french fries . . . oh wait, that was another movie.

This is just a warning for people like me who despise dubbed foreign films and insist on subtitles. The streaming version of this film is dubbed only, and there's no subtitled version. Amazon doesn't bother to provide this information in the product details for any of their streaming versions of foreign films, and I'm sick of it. You've been warned; you can't get a refund on a streaming rental.

Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Director Roar Uthaug's COLD PREY is is a truly terrifying horror film that hearkens back to 1980s-era slasher flicks. What makes the film so unique--at least for American audiences--is that it was shot in Norway by a Norwegian crew and features an all-Norwegian cast. But if the fresh talent and fresh faces aren't enough, the film offers a tightly plotted story that adds a new twist to the old slasher formula. It basically transplants FRIDAY THE 13TH from the abandoned summer camp at Crystal Lake to an abandoned ski lodge in the frozen, snow-packed mountains of northern Europe. Another fresh twist to the formula is that even the virginal kids get whacked, and the true identity of the killer, while not a total surprise when revealed at the end, makes him a more sympathetic character than genre icons Jason or Michael.

The acting in COLD PREY is outstanding--if you watch with the original Norwegian soundtrack, that is; the English dub is...well...a dub--and Norwegian beauty Ingrid Bolsø Berdal is especially effective in her tough-but-sympathetic portrayal of the film's obligatory final girl. Roar Uthaug's direction is also top-notch--he's definitely a Euro-horror director to keep your eye on--and the special FX are seamless and realistic yet eye-poppingly fun. As with the '80s slashers to which COLD PREY plays tribute, a lot of the really gruesome violence is off-screen (the camera cuts away just after contact), but that's part of the fun. The only real flaw in the film is that there isn't a single T or A shot--and the film's two beauties would be worth seeing sans clothing, even if only in a quick cutaway--which has been a must-have part of the genre since John Carpenter's HALLOWEEN (1978), but that's only a minor gripe.

I love this movie but I hate the English dubs, sounds like a bunch of infant voices.
Get the Norwegian language then use English subs.

Got to love those people that do the write up on the back of DVD's. For Cold Prey it says that, "If you think this is going to be the usual `trapped teens stalked by a maniac' movie, you're dead wrong." The finishes off the blurb by quoting Arrow in the Head that says, "If you enjoyed the original Friday the 13th and Halloween, you're going to love Cold Prey." Two movies that created the "trapped teens stalked by a manic" genre.

First off, it should be noted that Cold Prey is actually Fritt Vilt and is from Norway and is spoken in all Norwegian (aside from the occasional English songs). Naturally reading and horror flicks do not mesh very well as you are reading what they are screaming but are distracted by the words you sometimes miss what they are actually screaming at.

Despite what the back cover would have you to believe the movie is about a bunch of teens being stalked by a maniac (of whom it is pretty easy to figure out within the first five minutes). The one thing that differs is that they are not stuck in a warm climate conducive to fornicating but instead takes place in an abandoned cabin resort. The kids are stuck there as one of them has a snowboarding accident and it is too far to drag them back in the impending snowstorm to their car and just happen to see the cabin just up ahead.

The injured friend makes for a hard dilemma of flight or fight when one of the five comes up missing. Even with all the reading, you can still sense the fear and claustrophobia that the snowboarders feel as someone in an oversized parka, ski goggles, and an ax hunting them down and manage to frightening and entertaining even as it goes through more than one horror clichés.
