Plot: Think about before entering to rob a house...or just simply don't do it.


When "Don't Breathe" was out and about, I was recently watched "HUSH", so I was wrongly thinking that "Don't Breathe" was a movie about the same issue, a killer inside your house and you are trying to escape. Is about how many horror movies, are, about someone making you feel unsafe and horrified in your own home, and you need to escape from your own place.

It is an exhausted subject that "HUSH" managed to twist and master. But in this case "Don't Breathe" changed the rules of the game and gave us the supposed victim to become the villain, and got us rooted for the criminal, it was all in the background of every character.

"Don't Breathe" gave us the story of three individuals who enter to rob houses, each one for their own particular reasons, and with their background, we know already who is going to die first: the idiot, the one who brags, the less handsome by the way. The difference here is they decide to rob the house of a blind man, a veteran or something who they suppose have a lot of money in the house. It is true, they did not know of course this man had mad skills, a lot of hate in his soul and a totally messed up brain.

This movie had one of the most disturbing scenes and gave us a lot of a good acting from Jane Levy and Stephen Lang, who excelled in their role.

Loved the end of the movie, who gave us an interesting "hope" to see this story continue, if they decide to, they have a very hard work to make a sequel with a logic link to the story.

Another note, It has the hand of Sam Raimi on it, which know the genre very well.
