Don't Breathe (2016)

16 Mar 2016


fresh perspective

immersive atmosphere

expected outcome
acceptable suspense (developments predicted minutes before)

intense action
realistic effects

untraceable (natural) acting


same pitfall of gore/horror genre films, all parties are villianized so much so that there is no identification/empathy or sympathy possible => not really scary.

but fun twists as a thrilling entertainment

doesn’t explain why the hell the rich family couldn’t figure out where their daughter went.

also the “i don’t rape but here’s a syringe of my semen” just makes me think he’s impotent. just like the hammer used in Chugyeogja (the chaser). Maybe that is the makers’ intention.
