I really hate this kind of film and just watched it to see some pictures of Norway. In the end, I really loved it. The key, as a lot of people have pointed out, was making you care about the characters and not making them too predictably stupid. It didn't fall back on the lazy 'make all their innards fall out and eyeballs burst for dumb people whose brains don't work' style of entertainment, which was nice.
One thing though, as a language teacher I find it a bit depressing how many people have used phrases like 'DESPITE the subtitles' or made some comment or other about subtitled films. I know they're just being honest but most of the world have to watch loads of stuff with subtitles. In a lot a Northern European countries a lot of the most popular TV series are foreign with subtitles (mostly British and American). I'd really love it if people weren't so terrified of subtitles, they're missing out on a whole world of stuff out there!

These are great slasher films although it's hard to treat them as two separate films. The second film is just part two of the same film really but set in a hospital. For me the first film has the edge because of the setting - an old deserted and completely isolated ski lodge. It has to be said also that what sets the first film in particular apart from its Hollywood equivalents (ie, any slasher film with a group of teens as bait) is that the group in Cold Prey are actually quite likeable and ordinary as opposed to Hollywood's predictable loud, screaming, `super-pretty' and `hunky' American teens so I found myself actually feeling slightly sorry for them as they gradually get shown the red card.

I don't really want to spoil anything about the baddie (not much to spoil really) but let's just say I'm a little immune to Michael Myers and Jason. These films are a welcome addition to the genre having the elements and thick snow also working against the potential victims.

I was pretty satisfied after watching these back to back.

This double-disc set offers the two very successful Norwegian slashers in what has become the "Cold Prey" franchise (A prequel has been released under the imaginative title of "Cold Prey 3" not out on DVD yet at time of writing).
The Norwegian title actually translated as "Open Season" and the first film is a fairly conventional take on the slasher movie; young group go snowboarding, a mishap puts them in an abandoned hotel - cue stalking psychopath. The storyline isn't particularly original, but the beautifully evocative icy Norwegian landscape, at turns glinting in sunlight then becoming ferociously bleak, adds a little extra to the setting together with a creeping, menacing pace, well judged by director Roar Uthaug.
The second film very neatly takes up where the first left off, this time closer in feel and concept to something like "Halloween" as the true force of the killer is unleashed.
This film is even more conventional, perhaps a little less successful than the first, but well handled by its director Mats Stenberg.

Both films are presented in 16.9 widescreen in Norwegian language with English subtitles.
The first runs at 97 mins. with a short "behind the scenes" feature and a trailer; the second runs for 86 mins. with just the trailer as an extra.

A rather good, recommendable pairing, sufficiently different from their American antecedents, well made, acted and conceived. Certainly worth adding to any discerning viewer's horror/thriller collection.

Collecting slasher films isn't like many other vices; in the realm of the teen-kill completist, the good stuff is popular for a reason and afterwards there's a barren landscape of trash, crap and pond-scum horror. Every now and then, you'll come upon a film that makes it all worthwhile: Cold Prey is one of them.

The American approach to 'improving' the cut-and-dried stalk n' slash opus is to make it gorier and funnier (see: Hatchet) and self referential (Behind the Mask). Fun as those films are, they do little to involve the viewer any more in what's going on, concentrating too much on the effects work to bother carving out good characters who the audience might, God forbid, care about!

In Cold Prey there are no obnoxious teens with 'Please Kill Me' stamped on their foreheads, no explicitly dumb behaviour and a restrained level of bloodshed. This latter point may disappoint some horror fans but then the more cineliterate/mature viewer will find a lot to like about this bleak, gloomy festival of tension.

The relationships between the characters are more complex here than found in most genre examples and it all feeds well into their eventual fates, as the hulking Jason-like killer (equipped for his snowbound living arrangements) skulks the halls of the abandoned ski-lodge, attacking those who think they are alone. This is a film that maximises the tension of the situation with simple set-ups and realistic reactions as escape plans are thwarted and numbers dwindle until only likeable heroine Jannicke is left.

The finale is great, if not reminiscent of a scene from Hostel, and a 2008 sequel should hopefully recapture some of the edge-of-your-seat nail-biting on parade here. A proper horror film from a genre that's been saturated by comparative rubbish over the last decade, Cold Prey shows us that excellence can be found in simple storytelling.
