October Horror Movie Challenge - Cold Prey II (2008)

This post has spoilers about the first Cold Prey. You've been warned.

Synopsis: Jannicke (the sole survivor of the first film) wakes up in a hospital. The bodies of her friends and the psychotic Mountain Man that killed them are brought to hospital. Soon she discovers that the Mountain Man isn't as dead as he seems and her nightmare isn't over.

The Good: Cold Prey II is a solid sequel. Like the first, in some ways it feels like a Norwegian version of Halloween. It was interesting to learn more about the Mountain Man. Also, Jannicke's final action in the movie is fantastic. All survivors need to do it (that is if they want to continue to survive).

The Bad: Much like the first, I really don't see anything wrong with this movie.

Final Thoughts: While it didn't wow me quite like the original, Cold Prey II is a great sequel.

The Mountain Man likes to play with his prey. A killing blow isn't always his first move. Also, he tends to spend his Drama Points to use "I Think I'm Okay."
