The film is directed by Fede Alvarez.
The scary flick, Don't Breathe is rocking the box office these, having replaced Suicide Squad as the number 1 film when it comes to business.
The home invasion flick starring Stephen Lang, Jane Levy, Dylan Minnette and Daniel Zovatto, is making all the critics go gaga over the film. Jane Levy, Dylan Minnette and Daniel Zovatto plays wannabe thieves who decide to rob the house of a blind man (Stephen Lang), thinking it would be easy and quick buck. After all, what can a blind man do? Perhaps, they have not seen Daredevil or Book of Eli. Anyways, not only is this blind man strong and super accurate about his other senses like the Marvel superhero or Eli, he is also psychopathic and can kill mercilessly, if needed. And he also harbours a dark secret.
Here are some of the glowing reviews of the film, which is releasing this Friday in India.
“This is some weird, twisted shit. Don’t groan when I say Don’t Breathe is a home-invasion thriller. Uruguayan writer-director Fede Alvarez, of 2013’s gory Evil Dead remake, is as good as it gets when it comes to playing with the toys of the genre. What makes this so memorably nerve-frying is the way Alvarez and cinematographer Pedro Luque use night-vision and every trick in the book and ones not invented yet to trap us in their vise. Claustrophobics, you’ve been warned.”
“Fede Alvarez proves his bona fides as an original filmmaker with the home-invasion thriller Don’t Breathe, one of the most suspenseful, terrifying, and devilishly original horror pics in recent memory. Alvarez has a knack for using meager resources to his advantage. He sets virtually the entire film in the vet’s house, making ingenious use of every floor, every room, every ventilation duct to transform an ordinary house into a terrifying, vertiginous labyrinth. There are touches here that recall the wizardry of the Coen Brothers’ low-budget breakout feature Blood Simple and the first film in James Wan’s Saw franchise.”
“Don’t Breathe is visually resourceful and honest in how it sets up and delivers on its shocks. There isn’t a single false scare. There isn’t, come to think of it, a scare that doesn’t set up another scare down the road in the manner of a good gag writer — horror and slapstick being sibling-close, as Don’t Breathe’s co-producer and proud Three Stooges fan Sam Raimi would be the first to tell you.”
Minneapolis Star Tribune
“Fast-paced, coherent and continually gut-wrenching, this home invasion thriller begins with a gambit that pays off handsomely: making the villains redeemable and their victim monstrous. From its opening, a high-angle establishing shot of an abandoned, hellishly blighted Detroit neighborhood, we’re in a world of legitimate threats not to be laughed off.”
