What if Rutger Hauer’s relatively absurd, visually-impaired martial arts badass from Blind Fury was besieged by a home invasion in his reclusive Early Bird Special years? The answer is — to an extent — Don’t Breathe, a thriller that skews a little more toward The Collector than David Fincher’s underrated Panic Room. The latest effort from director Fede Alvarez (the Evil Dead remake) is a relentlessly intense cat-and-mouse game with a couple of hard lefts thrown into its twisted domestic labyrinth. It’s a nasty little piece of work that needs to be a bit more lean and slightly less mean.

When it premiered at this year’s South by Southwest Film Festival, ScreenCrush’s Britt Hayes called Don’t Breathe “an intense, relentless and confident thriller.” Giving the movie a very solid 7/10 rating, she also called it a “relentlessly intense cat-and-mouse game with a couple of hard lefts thrown into its twisted domestic labyrinth.” All that from Fede Alvarez, the guy who made the relentlessly intense Evil Dead remake. Sold!

We talk to the 'Evil Dead' cast in this exclusive video about the worst part about filming, what makes it all worth it and what they know about 'Evil Dead 2.'
