Review

You might have thought the yeti-ish killer from Fritt vilt was disposed of when Ingrid Bolsø Berdal planted an ice axe through his chest and sent him down into the crevasse, but in this sequel he reappears in soap-opera fashion to reek more havoc in the Norwegian mountains - this time in the local hospital. With that said, both the awakening and the subsequent little plot developments are quite clever. Because although this series (as it has now become) is as genre-bound as the next horror film series, the films - including this one - retains a welcoming freshness to them - amidst the deranged, seemingly unmotivated lone killer, the screaming young ladies, the creaking doors and secluded houses. And of course, a little female power does the trick in the end.
