Don’t Breathe

Don’t Breathe Movie which released pretty late in India is full of Suspense, Thrill, and Mystery of course. The movie is categorized under Horror/Thriller genre but it lacks horror approach. While watching its trailer on YouTube, I sensed it is more of suspense and not horror. And I have always been attracted to such genres.

Movie roams around three thieves- Rocky, Money, and Alex, who break into the house of a blind Army veteran, thinking they’ll get away easily. But things start to go wrong from the beginning. From then onwards, Don’t Breathe becomes a part of you that I even held my breath sometimes. Army veteran is a blind man but his sense of smell and hearing is damn strong that he locked the thieves in his home such that there is no going out.

As a writer, I have become smarter about predicting the conclusion or storyline while watching the movie, But Don’t Breathe surprised me on every next scene. Until the end, I wasn’t able to predict the next scene and this is what I liked the most.

Director Fede Alvarez shot movie so well that I feel he simply monopolized the suspense genre here. Plus, he sets a new standard for a thrill, horror through his film. Murder, Kidnapping, Robbery factors give this film a universal approach. If you are a lover of watching something new, then this movie is for you. Go hurry up. The movie released last week only in India.

  1. And…I love your reviewing/writing style. So many people overload their prose with adjectives galore and use adverbs instead of choosing a more potent verb. My…I sound like a critic myself!! But I see you were media student so I guess that’s why your sentences are so succinct. Nice, thanks

  2. OMG. Don’t Breathe was amazing. It’s definitely in my top 20 movies list. It was exceptionally well-made. Granted, in the middle it was a bit repetitive with the characters going around the house like trapped rats, and their were a few plot inconsistencies like (how did the blindman manage to kidnap the rich girl?) but the third act was practically gave me a heart attack, lol. I left the cinema and my heart was still pumping furiously. The style reminds me a bit of French Xtreme wave horror. Like you, I agree it wasn’t so much as horror as suspense, but there was something supernatural about the blindman’s agility and speed and a few answers were left unsolved at the end leaving room for a potential sequel. I’ve watched a lot of horror movies and most have them have been big disappointments, so this was a solid effort. 🙂

  3. thrilling and suspenseful, def…worth watching more than once, especially when you know what happens the second/third/etc. time around and just want to see the reactions of other audience members in the theater, lol
