It might be part of the Black Friday sales. I've been keeping an eye on it for weeks, and the Amazon price has been stuck in the $35-$40 range. It just dropped on Friday.

I wouldn't expect the price to stay this low. The singles are still $17.99 each. So if anyone's interested, jump now before the price goes back up.

Finally got around to watching this and it actually isn't all that bad, but the CGI scenes - total crap. What the hell is the point! What possesses someone to release those kind of low quality effects is difficult to comprehend.

I do feel like this is the worst of the series, but I cut it some slack because it seemed like it was more ambitious than the budget could afford.

I adored Bloody Beginnings though, I hope we see more sequels like that.

I'm easy but WT3 is horrible. I've watched it a few times over the years and it always feels like watching a dull The Asylum movie. Not seen 4 and 5 yet because 3 was so awful.

^ If you're a slasher fan, I'd highly recommend part 4. It's a hoot, and it works as an '80s throwback. Sort of Slumber Party Massacre meets Blood Tracks.

You'll have to throw logic out the window, as the characters make some pretty dumb choices. But to me, it really nailed the '80s slasher vibe without even trying.

I agree, part 5 however was beyond horrible and boring as Hell.

Shame about part 5, as part 4 was easily the strongest sequel and in many ways is more fun than even the first film. I also agree 3 is the worst of them and was weary of 4 myself, so glad I gave it a shot now. Highly recommend 4, check out 5 at your own risk. It's very disappointing after the brilliance of 4 though.

I'd agree this one was an ambitious effort. I love the concept but the execution is really poor. Scenes of the prisoners bickering drag on too long, the CGI executed kills were lame and that tagged on ending was god awful.

4 was so much better. Still some iffy CGI and the characters were dumb as dirt but fantastic kills and a great setting.

5 wasn't as good due to the cheap-o town setting but made up for with it's overall mean spirit attitude and great kills.

Agreed, I really loved 4. But then again I usually love almost any winter themed horror flick.

I enjoyed 3 to a lesser degree, but have to agree that the CGI effects were laughable. I'll admit that it's probably the worst in the series.
