My Rating

Movie Info

An afternoon of winter fun turns out to be unexpectedly chilling in this thriller. Five friends head out for a weekend of snowboarding in the Norwegian Alps -- Eirik (Tomas Alf Larsen) and his longtime girlfriend Jannicke (Ingrid Bolso Berdal), Mikael (Endre Martin Midtstigen) and his new significant other Ingunn (Viktoria Winge), and Tobias (Rolf Kristian Larsen). Tobias already feels like the odd man out since he's currently without a girlfriend, and he becomes a lot more uncomfortable when he

A conventional but nicely handled slasher pic that makes good use of spectacular mountain range locations.

Not an original bone in its body, but it still works (and works well) by force of style, splat, and intensity.

Audience Reviews for Fritt vilt (Cold Prey)

Cold Prey is one of the best, most original Slasher films of recent memory. Along with Adam Green's Hatchet, this film is a real breath of fresh from stale teen Slasher films such as Urban Legend and I know What You Did Last Summer. Cold Prey is an effective horror film that steadily builds up the tension on-screen and slowly terrifies. Cold Prey's dark atmosphere and sense of helplessness (as the characters are in the middle of nowhere) only add to its strong, original story and elevate this film beyond anything that we have seen in the horror genre since the 1980's. I am very impressed with the Norwegian output in the horror genre, and Cold Prey is a terrific Slasher film that will definitely become popular over time. Given time, this film will find its audience. To sum up Cold Prey, it's a Slasher film that brings back key elements of the slasher film formula very well and it's reminiscent of classic vintage slasher greats. Cold Prey is one of the few genre films to really terrorize the viewer. This film has something that most Slasher films do not possesses and that's a feeling of constant suspense. If you're a fan of the genre, then you'll surely enjoy this one. With a good cast and effective directing, Cold Prey delivers memorable thrills and shocks that successfully brings back key elements that made Slasher films exciting a fun to watch. Cold Prey is one of the finer Norwegian horror films and is among the best films in the horror genre in a very long time.

Its plot gave the impression that the production was hold on for a few many years. Yet it works for it doesn't bore. When the options begin to get limited, one learns to appreciate such pieces. More or less.

Fairly good Norwegian slasher all set in te snowy mountains where five friends find themselves unwelcome guests in an apparantly abandoned hotel. Took a little too long to get to the action and the kills lacked gore. But it is a suspensful and creepy film, especially during the last half and the killer has screen presence and is used very effectively. Certainly better than your average slasher, but may leave the gorehounds wanting more brutality.

Ah, this brings back memories! This is one of my favourite horror films of all time, introduced to me by one of my teachers as a good Norwegian slasher. And she was most certainly right!

Cold Prey (Fritt Vilt) is a film about a group of skiiers/snowboarders going to a secluded hill for a ski/snowboard trip. After they start going down the hill, one of them breaks their leg. At this point, they have no reception on their phones, they are too far from the car and the next village and are stranded. But conveniantly nearby is a hotel that has been abandoned for years, which houses the group well. Unfortunately for them, however, there is a mad murderer with a pickaxe ready to start taking them down one by one...

This film has a great atmosphere, a clever story, with some very jumpy moments, quite a bit of gore and some clever twists. I enjoyed this film and would recommend it to anyone who is into the horror genre and doesn't mind reading subtitles!

However, the thing that really annoyed me about the film was the rather unsuitable credits music that ruined a perfect ending. Saying the song title spoils the ending, but to give you an idea of the genre of music, look up songs by Turbonegro and you'll see why it is unsuitable! This did turn utter awe into pure laughter, but I still remember it as a fantastic film. Watch it!
