Good Evening horror hounds. Tonight I talk about a film I just saw entitled Don't Breath. Now going into this film I didn't know much about it but I wanted to keep an open mind. The film starts off as we follow three friends who steal using the keys they steal from the sheriff who happens to be the father of one of our leads.
Like every good movie we start off with a love triangle. Our hero, the son of the sheriff loves his best friend but she is taken by a jerk of a guy. The girl is a single mother who just wants to steal enough money to start a new life for her and her daughter. The boyfriend finds out about a blind man who has enough money stored away in his house to set them up for life.
Up till now the movie is just a fun heist movie with a love story hidden inside. It isn't till we get inside the house that everything flips. The old man wakes up and kills the boyfriend. We then spend the rest of the movie with the two best friends trying to escape but the blind man has them locked inside where only his keys can get them out.
We learn a lot more about the blind man that gives the movie so much depth but I don't want to give that all away right now. Needless to say it keeps you on the edge of your seat, waiting with baited breath to find out how it all turns out. It is one of the more exciting films I've ever seen.
And the best part about this movie you ask? Well, if you have ever seen People under the Stairs, this movie is like a modern day retelling. That was one of my favorite movies growing up so it was nice to see a new spin on it, to see it paid such a loving tribute.
If you love movies, if you love characterization in your stories than this is the film for you. I can't remember the last time I got so hooked into a film, as if everything falls away and the movie is all that's left. You know, the feeling we all go to the movies to feel. This movie delivers in spades.
