This movie sets up a potential to go further with this story. We know little about why these invaders.
In the movie Black Friday, the shambling beasts people can become simply consume, mutate, multiply and destroy. It all takes place on the day after American Thanksgiving. It’s amusing to see a commentary on rabid consumerism take on a different meaning. The idea is not new. George Romero’s Dawn of the Dead was the first; instead of an invasion upon a mall, this film sees a big box operations as the true threat.
With Bruce Campbell playing Jonathan Wexler, the store manager, I can’t help but wonder if an early draft was considering an Army of Darkness sequel. Instead of S-Mart, the terror comes to All-Mart. Instead of seeing this actor take the lead, he has a smaller part where he plays a schmuck who thinks he can retire after decades of service to this chain. I’m sure writer Andy Greskoviak wanted to try his hand at what could’ve been. Plus, a recent interview on Screen Rant said the man with the chin retired from that series.
I’m not as interested in buying movies I already own (either in DVD or Blu-ray). Of those classics worth re-investing in, only a handful exists:

According to CableTV.com, 2020 is the year to embrace the 4K (UltraHD) for your television viewing needs. A 55″ unit is considered reasonably priced. The infrastructure exists for broadcasters to push the digital content, but the alliance industries are not ready unless people pay the cost of this extra data bandwidth usage instead of them.
Anyone buying a TV during the Black Friday (Cyber or Boxing Day) sales will be in for a treat. I’m enjoying the format so I can view crisp CGI over live-action. Nature documentaries are the best. Some films truly shine whereas others really do not need it.
