DON’T BREATHE ~ Rated R

 Starring Stephen Lang, Jane Levy, Dylan Minette and Daniel Zovatoo

Director Fede Alvarez brings a horrifying tale of craziness and terror to the big screen, as three youngsters embark on robbing a blind veteran, thinking it will be a walk in the park, but it turns out being anything but…this is DON’T BREATHE!

Pulling off small robberies here or there to raise a few bucks for FUN MONEY and to distract these teenagers from their mundane lives, we meet Money          (Daniel Zovatoo), Rocky (Jane Levy) and Alex (Dylan Minnette). Alex’s father luckily works for a security company, and he has just acquired the key’s of one of his father’s newest clients, a blind army vet (Stephen Lang) living in a mansion, and who has apparently come into a bundle of cash, after the untimely death of his daughter.

Thinking this is going to be the easiest robbery ever, Money, Rocky and Alex make their way into this man’s home, but find out very quickly, being blind is no issue for this crazy man, determined to finish all of his intruders off, no matter what it takes…

I give DON’T BREATHE a rating of MUST SEE ON THE BIG SCREEN ~ We have discussed many times before that HORROR films are not usually my genre of choice to view. But, I’m glad I decided to bite the bullet and go check out DON’T BREATHE, as this film is a masterpiece filled with on the edge of your seat suspense, rather than 2 hours of nothing but blood, guts and gore. From the very first frame to the last, you are engrossed in what will happen to these 3 foolish teenagers, as they definitely picked the wrong house to heist. Plus, there are scenes throughout that are so demented, yet so intriguing; you literally can’t take your eyes off the screen. Alvarez did a fabulous job of getting a lot from his actors, while managing to get some awesome and unexpected cinematography at the same time. Leaving me to suggest that even if you don’t usually enjoy HORROR films like me, you still have to check out DON’T BREATHE, because it will have you doing just that, as you go from one suspense filled moment to the next…
