    Falls into some horror movie type tropes but they're few and far between and the film really does a great job of reversing the home invasion roles and make you confused on who to root for. I was also tense as hell throughout the entire film. Don't Breathe and Green Room have been vastly surprising and intense films this year and I hope the trend continues. 4 years 5 months ago

    As a thriller, Don't Breathe has a nifty premise - burglars get into a blind veteran's house to steal the money he got from a settlement when his daughter was killed in a wrongful accident, and he turns out to be more than they can handle - but I think it's one of those movies whose logic, once you get out into the sunlight, starts to dissolve. While you're along for the ride, it seems pretty air-tight, give or take, but there are some sizable plot holes for anyone who dares ask questions (about the ending especially). Part of the magic is the sound design, which makes everything more prominent, somewhat putting us in the blind man's head, and ramps up the tension. The film might have been more interesting if the victim were sympathetic, but it fails to pull that switcheroo, with the blind man having a dark and lurid secret that's meant to make the burglary acceptable to the audience. I liked it, but the plot needed a few tweaks. 4 years 5 months ago
