Do you love shocking horror?
Don't Breathe


It was with trepidation that I went along to see Don't Breathe the new horror film directed by Fede Alvarezea, who also wrote the script along with Rodo Sayagues. The tagline is that the movie is from the twisted minds behind Evil Dead.

Don't Breathe


Rocky, Alex and Money are three teenagers who make their living by breaking into people's homes and selling what they find. They make the mistake of attempting to steal from an Army veteran who is blind. He reportedly has a ton of cash hidden somewhere in his house in a security safe.

Don't Breathe


This is a smart horror movie with plenty of suspense and plot twists. It doesn't provide you with any scream out loud moments where you jump in surprise (which I detest), rather there is a taunt slow burn throughout which leaves you wondering where the story will lead next.

Don't Breathe


The majority of the action takes place in the veteran's home and it really makes the most of the space. It's interesting to note that most of the film was shot in Hungary rather than Detroit where it is set. At one point the lights are turned off and we have a glimpse at what it might be like to be unable to see.

Don't Breathe


The characters aren't likeable, but they are placed in challenging situations which are somewhat plausible. One of the scenes is disturbing and confronting with the sole purpose of maximum shock value that may leave some unsettled.



Don't Breathe is a modern horror thriller with plenty of suspense to keep you interested until the end. I'm predicting a sequel. Don't Breathe is currently showing in cinemas around Australia
