Don’t Breathe (2016) – Movie Review
Me: Wanna go for movie?
She: Wow! So cool! Which one?
Me: Don’t Breathe.
*after 15 seconds of silence*
She: I can’t. I tried.
Me: Well, we need to re-think our relationship.
Well, so obviously nothing like this happened, but hey, since I am the funny monk here, starting with a joke is kinda mandatory. Or you could say that I probably just needed an outlet after watching this horrifying yet intriguing enough movie that I couldn’t help myself trying to grasp onto anything remotely funny.
So, the premise is quite simple. Three ‘Good-for-nothing-but-stealing-therefore-kinda-good-at-something’ kinda people want to rob a house. Reason?
That’s the amount the owner of the house has stacked inside and it’s a lonely abandoned neighbourhood, so the odd of this heist being successful is a super high. However there is one slight problem.
The owner of the house is still inside the premise. And guess what? He’s blind!
But how could THAT be a problem?
And that my folks, is the premise of the film.
Everything from here on that I might add is not gonna do shit justice to this absolutely stunning film that pushes you so much at the edge of your seat, that you can probably steal some bit of Popcorm from the dude right in the front seat without him noticing.
And though I am no @THOTH here, but still believe in asking some direct philosophical question. How far would you risk going for money?
As for me, I present you an alternative life-plan that not only helps you in making the right choices, but also in a nutshell, tells you why Don’t Breathe is a terrifying film.
So breathe, or don’t breathe, but for heaven’s sake, don’t turn a blind eye on this one.
