#14 - Don’t Breathe (2016)
I didn’t get as much of a kick out of this film while watching it at home compared to watching it in a packed Friday night cinema, but it’s still relentlessly tense and entertaining spin on the home invasion film. On the surface, the film definitely lives up to its title; a combination of some nifty camera work and an effective sound design make it almost unbearably tense at times (in the best way). But it’s also a surprisingly thought-provoking questioning of morality and the consequences of our actions. I think the plot twist in the third act oversteps the line, and some of the character development leaves a little bit more to be desired, but this was otherwise a well-crafted horror with smarts. #dontbreathe#film#horror#cinema#spooktober
Just watched #dontbreathe
Excellent modern horror movie from newcomer horror director Fede Álvarez, the man behind The Evil Dead remake.
The story follows three young adults who break into the house of an elderly man to steal a big pile of cash, only to realise the man is basically Daredevil as an elderly serial killer, and that they’re way too far up shit creek.
Firstly, the suspense, sound design and music are all top notch. This is one of the most suspenseful horror movies I’ve seen in a long time, Stephen Lang was excellent as the Blind Man. Also, superb use of one location as well.
As for problems, there’s only one real problem, and it’s the characters...they’re pretty thin. One of them is literally called Money...really? Some of them do grow on you, but for the most part, they’re kind of one dimensional, except for the girl.
Overall, this is a flawed, but very enjoyable modern horror movie, and one to check out this Halloween! 8/10
This film is nothing at all like what you'd expect. It is far better. Avoid the trailers and any clips of this film, just go and watch it. With #dontbreathe#itmovie#cultofchucky and now #betterwatchout , I can say that my faith in horror films has been restored. For too long scary movies were all about hauntings and demonic possessions, we are now finally going back to dark, twisted and intelligent horror films. Horror movies should be fun and perverse. The frights should come from the demented storytelling and the adrenaline rush of running for your life. A bit of black humour and great acting go a long way too. This movie has all of that in spades. This darkly twisted and subversive take on the #homeinvasion genre with #christmas decorations is the best film to see for this season. It's like #homealone but with a lot cursing, a ton of gore, and the most wickedly dark sense of humour this side of #scream . #movie#moviereview#picoftheday#postoftheday#potd#review#netflix
Don't ever underestimate a blind man.
My 13th pick is another 2017 film, Don't Breathe. A reclusive blind man is hiding a large amount of cash inside his home. Hoping to walk away with a massive fortune, a trio of thieves break into the house thinking it'll be an easy steal. They soon discover the blind man isn't as helpless as he seems. The break in quickly turns into a fight to escape!
Deciding to take a break from pumpkin beers, tonight's accompaniment is Lazy Magnolia's Souther Pecan! Advertised as the original pecan nut brown ale, its definitely a flavor many overlook when searching for fall beers.

#31DaysOfHalloween , day 13: #DontBreathe . Trite and gross in all the worst ways. Some jump scares got me, but when there's one in every scene it gets old and predictable really fast. A big ol' pile of meh, with actively offensive bits to make it extra intolerable.
The Evil Dead
Sam Raimi is known for Spiderman 1, 2 and 3 but to me, THIS is the Sam Raimi I adore
It's low budget, it's campy and cheesy.
It's the early 80's, what do you expect?
Raimi crafts a tense and moody environment, puts his characters in there, and then ruthlessly disposes of them, sometimes doing so several times for the same character. What's worse is that there's nowhere to go. Raimi creates a claustrophobic feeling in anyone watching, he wants you to think about being in a situation where you're trapped with nothing but death and destruction surrounding you.
This is a scary, scary film.
And I think I know why films now a days can't hold a candle to films like Halloween and Evil Dead.
It really is a HORROR film.
You feel sorry for the characters in it.
They are trapped in a cabin in the woods with some evil ass demons.
The forest itself is alive and there is no way out.
When I first watched this film I wanted the good guys to die because I felt sorry for them.
This film is one of the great horrors like The Omen, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Nightmare on Elm Street.
There are some truly creepy and fucked up scenes in the film.
THERE'S A TREE THAT RAPES A WOMAN, like who comes up with that!?
The best horror films are the ones where the characters are in hopeless situations with no easy way out.
The Evil Dead is one of those films. It really is something terrifying.
