I had watched 3/4 of the movie before, but not the ending, so I was finally able to see the entire film.


Curious as to what you thought of the ending. Happy or are they going to chow down on the kid? I'm in the latter camp.


I don't know. It's a bit ambiguous.

SPOILER ALERT


On the one hand, the fact that the family had kids and a dog (were they the ones following them throughout the movie? There was a scene where the Boy spotted another boy, and a scene were the Man said he heard a dog) would seem to bode well. And that the new guy didn't just ambush and shoot him. If they had wanted to eat him, there was no reason to approach him, risk being shot, and then introducing him to the family. If you are going to eat a rabbit, for example, you don't let the kids play with it and give it a name.

On the other hand, I got a weird vibe from the new guy and his "wife". Their dialogue seemed... strained.

I would like to think that the ending was supposed to be positive, just like the fact that they saw a living beetle that flew up into the sky. The rest of the movie was so depressing (albeit realistic, I thought).
