‘Don’t Breathe’ Review: A Relentless Home Invasion Thriller That Borders on Unpleasant

by Britt Hayes August 24, 2016 @ 12:00 PM
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.

‘Don’t Breathe’ Director Fede Alvarez on Stephen Lang, Audience Reactions and Why Trailers Can’t Ruin Movies

Three years after delivering his visceral remake of Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead, director Fede Alvarez returns with Don’t Breathe, an inventive new thriller that puts a nasty spin on the home invasion genre. Alvarez’s latest follows three amateur criminals that get way more than they bargained for when they target the home of a reclusive blind man, played by the intimidating Stephen Lang. I had a chance to speak with Alvarez before a recent screening in Austin, Texas, where he discussed the making of his new film, Lang’s crucial role, and whether he thinks movie trailers are too revealing.

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!

'Avatar' Sequels Bringing Back Stephen Lang as the Villain

Despite being the highest grossing film of all time, public opinion on James Cameron's 'Avatar' seems to be all over the place. However, there's one thing that everyone can agree on -- Stephen Lang made one helluva villain. His evil Colonel Miles Quaritch may have been one moustache shy of tying women to railroad tracks, but it was a fun, broad performance that made his complete and utter defeat feel like a real triumph.
And he'll be back for the sequels ... somehow.
