Rating: Great Trash
Taking a diametrically opposite approach to horror from his blood-drenched feature debut, 2013's Evil Dead remake, Uruguayan director Fede Alvarez turns to the subtler tools of cinematography, editing, and soundscape to generate scares this time around. And for an hour, the resulting home-invasion movie Don't Breathe is a brutal, relentless little thrill machine. Unfortunately, it runs another 28 minutes, during which the film goes wildly, and tastelessly, off the rails.
