Sequel to Cold Prey is a pretty good follow-up, continuing where the first left off, this entry is a good film, but one that could have been improved upon. The first Cold Prey brought back the best elements of the Slasher film, while adding atmosphere and tension. While maintaining some key elements that made the first film what it was, this follow-up manages to be thrilling and tense, but there could have been a few improvements here and there to make it a better film. The lack of truly original material on-screen is to be expected from this genre of horror. Luckily despite its imperfections, this follow-up to Cold Prey still has plenty of effective bone chilling moments to appeal to the viewer. The film takes a different approach in terms of plot, and it is quite interesting to see where the filmmakers take the story. What separates this follow-up from others is that though it uses the same old formula, the filmmakers at least try to create something new with the material while retaining everything that you’d expect. Despite its weak bits, there are still plenty of tense moments that will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. Like Hatchet II, Cold Prey II manages to reuse the formula executed from the first film, and add to it, to make it a worthwhile movie to watch. Just when you’d think that the filmmakers have stretched the genre into every possible angle, they came up with this. Not a perfect film, but one that manages to still thrill and entertain you, compared to many other films that just fails due to the fact that Hollywood only is interested in remaking classics. Cold Prey 2 delivers and is a fine follow-up to a modern Slasher classic.
