It's nice to finally reembrace you after avoiding you the last week to avoid anything about this movie.
That said, it's been a while since I left a movie with an adrenalin buzz like that. Pretty much my two favorite parts have already been discussed (the unicorn and the "good work, zombie hand").
That said, there were two things I felt were quasi loose ends -
What was the "glitch from upstairs"? And I felt like there was going to be something more about the guy doing security in the room that seemed very uneasy about everything.
The glitch was Marty messing with the wires. Since the base is right under the Cabin, anytime anyone mentions Upstairs they're talking about the kids. And I loved that guy, he was a great red herring (since we all spent half the movie waiting for him to "grow a conscience" and start helping the kids. Even though that would've been the worst thing for him to do).
And I don't get people who have a strong dislike of this movie due to it being not scary enough or some such thing. Folks, that's usually how horror/comedies work. Either they're too scary to be funny, or too funny to be scary (and generally I prefer the latter, simply because they're usually way more enjoyable). I really can't think of one that manages to be both at once.
