Movie Review: Don’t Breathe is the claustrophobic thriller of the summer that blends well with great interpretation of fears of the unknown, horrors of uncertainty and intellectually crafted suspense. This simple and brilliant concept adds a fresh and unpredictable approach to the home invasion genre through their strong use of sound and movements. The performances were all pretty good and believable, the characters were well-realized as we can see what truly defines them by the decisions and choices they make. Exceptionally, the true incredible performance was by Stephen Lang as The Blind Man, he was greatly horrifying and was the main core of suspense throughout the film, he portrayed his disability excellently and generated a thunderstorm of tension. There wasn’t really much of a narrative story, but more of a heart-pumping occurrence that grabs the audience’s attention and never lets go. The camerawork and sound design combined to craft a spectacular chase between these tensed characters was enriching and meticulous. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much character background for me to connect with, so I didn’t have much of an investment with the main characters. More or less, Don’t Breathe is a greatly crafted suspense/thriller film that is a must-see for any horror fan out there that is surely to produce squirms and screeches.

I must say how much I love a good horror/thriller film as it’s even better experience in the cinema with its full surround sound system and the glorious wide screen that I know and love. ❤ This year is a really great year for horror films! – said the critics and the general audiences, this film alongside with The Conjuring 2, Lights Out and The Witch.
