It's much better than the first film. As with the exception of cliched jump scares and too much half-step suspense, Cold Prey 2 does flesh out its characters and their relationship enough so that the viewer cares about even the traditional victims. It also has a memorable scene that creates perhaps the best reason for a resurrected villain ever shown in the sub-genre, even if the villain is too superhuman otherwise.
A direct sequel of the original. It is better than most horror sequels with likable characters, but the heroine acts enormously stupid this time even if she looks cool when posing tough with a shotgun and the villain is an unstoppable death machine that is hard to take serious this time around. The final scene should have been removed too. A couple of death scenes are effectively done though.
