Don't Breathe DVD Review08:00:00
With Christmas now over, the January blues have set in and put many of us in a bit of a down mood.

Following three young people, the film sees them enter the home of a blind veteran as they believe he has a large amount of money in his home, which they can take without him ever knowing.

As characters, they are all likeable, even when doing wrong and you are never quite sure who to stand up for or who you wish would just hold their breath a little longer.

Director Fede Álvarez and his team, many who are responsible for the Evil Dead remake, have used their film history knowledge and presented us with a new idea on the big screen. Or a fresh take on an old look. The whole thing is very much successful because of this and without this vibe throughout, the tension would not be as good as it is.
There so I am going to breathe a huge rating on this film with this glorious…
