A trio of friends break into the house of a wealthy blind man, thinking they’ll get away with the perfect heist. They’re wrong.
Oh yeah and this is a Raimi-Tapert production. It’s exactly what you expect from people who have been making entertaining stuff for a long time, even if it can take awhile to feel sympathetic for the people breaking in to a house to be the good guys once folks start defending themselves
My only critique for someone who lives here: the outside shots in detroit, you don’t have to go that far out into macomb county or even washtenaw to get some way scarier middle of nowhere vibes where people have to go through the creepiest rolling fogs in the morning… police also don’t come out.
The moral of this story is don’t rob someone’s (or anyone )house because they maybe able to fight back!
It’s funny to me that the “horror” part isn’t inflicted by a ghost( or some other supernatural entity) or someone who get their kicks torturing (innocent) people, but by a person defending their house/stuff…despite the setup, I was complete sympathetic to the homeowner/blindman and was in fact routing for him most of the movie. It’s a good movie, well shot, with lots of twists and turns. I certainly can’t wait to see the sequel where he has to defend a daughter figure (according to the previews).
Basically just propaganda against home defense.
The movie goes completely out of its way to try to make the robbers out to be the good guys. They add stuff about the home owner that feel shoved in just to make you dislike him. Realistically, if they didn’t add that stuff, it there should have been nothing wrong with that all of the intruders being killed for attempted robbery.
This was a decent Saturday night flick. Gave me a scare at least twice even when I knew what was coming. Worth a rent.
Original and eerie
This movie is original in plot, something I appreciate especially in horror! The acting is great, and has you empathizing for the wrong people, which is always a trip!
Reviews let me down
This is very boring. And I usually agree with most reviews. Not sure what’s going on here. P.S. Not scary, at all.
I don’t want to go into it as to ruin it for people but the ending is so bad that it ruins the whole movie. The movie wasn’t the best and was just okay but that ending. All I’m gonna say and those that have seen it will understand but I’m gonna go back for revenge even we are the ones that started it but it’s his fault.
This part had always bugged me.
Maybe I missed something and have to watch it again. A blind person would have a keen since of smell. Hell, a person who is not blind could smell cigarette smoke on someone. How could they expect to hide with their clothes smelling like cigarettes?
Entertaining and very intense
By Nicholas becerra
Don't Breathe is satifsying and intense felt real and has a lot of great acting of breathing of course. Watch this in a crowd and you won't breathe for the rest of your life.
