Directed by: Fede Alvarez
So today I decided to hit the movie theaters and see the new horror film, “Don’t Breathe”.
Plot/synopsis: Rocky, a young woman wanting to start a better life for her and her sister, agrees to take part in the robbery of a house owned by a wealthy blind man with her boyfriend Money and their friend Alex. But when the blind man turns out to be a more than he seems, the group must find a way to escape his home before they become his newest victims.
I was surprised of how great this movie was. I would have to say that this film is definitely the best horror film of 2016 by far. I was entertained throughout the entire film and wasn’t bored one bit. It’s definitely an edge of your seat thriller/horror. The writing was really good and the movie was beautifully filmed too. No surprise ’cause this was made by the same team that made the Evil Dead remake. This movie “Don’t Breathe” had an interesting concept. It kept you guessing toward the end so it was unpredictable.
I loved Stephen Lang in this movie ’cause he played a great bad guy. Honestly though, in this movie you couldn’t tell which ones where the good guys and the bad guys. I felt Stephen Lang’s blind man character was the good guy, though ’cause it seems like he was trying to save his home from being burglarized and he was punishing them for it. This film maybe a short 90 minute film but I thought it was really good all the way through. Definitely one of the better new horror films and probably the best one Sam Raimi produced so far. I’m definitely getting the BluRay when it comes out for sure.
After seeing that this movie made a lot of money in the box office and it’s a hit movie right now, I can see why. The story to this movie was so original and different which is rare in Hollywood these days. It’s recommended checking out.
Score for “Don’t Breathe” = **** (4 stars as in excellent)
