Cold Prey 3 (2010) @ Fritt Vilt III

At a glance:
Not to risk further disbelief by resurrectin the killer a second time, Cold Prey 3 @ Fritt Vilt III is a prequel to movies one and two, naturally an origins movie. We switch directors again with Mikkel Brænne Sandemose but the biggest difference is that franchise staple Ingrid Bolsø Berdal does not return. Instead we get a new set of teens and they go about tryin to survive the monster they discovered. I should imagine we do a similarly crappy job in survivin the movie, as they do, the monster.
Bad news on the doorstep:
After only a token introduction to the birthmarked butcher in the first two movies, somethin more intimate is required for a third movie. Sadly we are not given much more than yet another token backstory on the antagonist; effectively a concession on the filmmakers part that we've come to the end of the road in this icy charade. Also, this latest bunch of people are the most beautiful yet - but they're just as clichéd and pedestrian as the original skiers in the first movie. The movie even feels lethargic in some parts.
Perennial wonderment:
How any third movie always gets the most flak.This one's got 'last paycheque' written all over it.
Amacam joker, berapa bintang lu mau kasi?
A few chillin moments but ultimately a letdown. Forget it and go watch Troll Hunter (2010) instead.★★
Bonus material:
"I can't believe you're interestin enough to make three movies about."
