Synopsis by Mark Deming
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 breaks his leg while taking advantage of a secluded ski spot. It's getting late in the day and injured Tobias needs to get out of the cold, so he and his friends take shelter in an abandoned ski lodge nearby, planning to head back into town in the morning. However, as the evening wears on Tobias and his pals realize that the lodge isn't as abandoned as they thought, and its sole inhabitant is a madman who is determined to see them dead. A major box office success in Norway, Fritt Vilt (aka Cold Prey) was the first feature film from director Roar Uthaug.
