Sometime later, five college students - Alissa, her stepbrother Jeff, Jeff's girlfriend Mandy, Alissa's boyfriend Matt, and their mutual friend Sean, arrive in the forest to take a day long hike. Jeff forces the others to try to find a waterfall he and Alissa used to go to as kids, but they end up taking so long that it is nighttime by the time they start walking back to the car. Along the way, they discover the remains of Barbara's body, and then encounter the same monster that killed her. It chases them near a cabin, and manages to kill Jeff.

The others make it to the cabin, where they find Carl, Vicky, and Douglas, who have sealed the windows and walls with boards to protect themselves against the creature lurking outside. While Carl and Vicky are hopeful that they will all be rescued soon, Douglas is bitterly cynical of their chances. The creature almost breaks into the house, but they manage to hold it off, although Carl is scratched in the process.

Matt volunteers to take a walkie-talkie and make a run for the car while Carl and Sean keep watch for the creatures. However, his screams are heard on the walkie-talkie, and then it starts heading for the cabin. Douglas attempts to board up the entrance to keep the creature from coming in, leaving Sean and Carl to die, but the girls help them get in through the back before the creature gets them. The group tie Douglas to the stairs, no longer trusting him.

Mandy confides in Alissa that she is pregnant while Sean confesses to Mandy that he and Jeff were having an affair. The group hear a walkie-talkie going off, and discover a barely alive Matt in the cellar, along with the animal. The group manage to get Matt upstairs, but Carl is killed keeping the animal from getting into the house. Douglas proposes that the group let the animal eat the dying Matt so that they can escape. The group refuses, and decide to trap the animal inside the house and burn it down. However, when they untie Douglas to help, he beats Matt to death anyway, calling the others weak. The animal suddenly breaks in and kills Douglas. As the animal eats his body, the others get kerosene out of the cellar and spread it throughout the house. Mandy, Sean, and Vicky hide in the cellar while Alissa lures the animal into the trap. She sets the fire, and successfully burns the monster to death.

Alissa is killed, but Mandy is able to reach the car. The second animal attacks her while she is trying to start it, but Mandy manages to kill the second animal by running its head over with the car. Mandy escapes, and begins crying over the loss of her friends as she drives away.

    Shock Till You Drop and Bloody Disgusting both panned the film, and Shock Till You Drop stated that the movie was "a waste of a good, old-fashioned creature." We Got This Covered gave Animal a slightly more positive rating and commented that "Animal has enough carnage to appease more forgiving horror fans, but despite a quick pace and brutal kills, it's repetition that truly kills this beast."
