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.
