    The blu-ray is $16.99 at Target. For anyone interested, there's a 20 percent off Cartwheel coupon on blu-rays, making it even cheaper.

    The first half of the film was interesting and enjoyable. It really slowed down after that. The ending was rather disappointing as were several later film developments. Worth the free viewing on Prime but I'm glad I didn't buy the blu-ray.

    I liked but do I agree about the ending. But then I'm usually disappointed with the ways movies end. Can't think of a better way to have ended it, but I didn't really like what they did. I also really hated that they called them "Hungries" instead of zombies. I thought Walking Dead calling them "Walkers" was annoying, but "Hungries" is a thousand times worse. Why can't we just call them fucking zombies?
