Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is making this an autumn to remember for Fede Alvarez fans. In addition to releasing Don't Breathe on Digital, Blu-ray, and DVD this November, the company is also unleashing Evil Dead Unrated on digital avenues beginning October 25th (as initially reported by Bloody Disgusting), giving viewers the chance to watch five minutes of footage from 2013's Evil Dead that was too extreme for the big screen.
From the Press Release (via Why So Blu?): "Also from Director Fede Alvarez, Evil Dead Unrated will be available on digital platforms on October 25, just in time for Halloween. Fans will be able to see Fede’s unedited vision for the film with five additional minutes that were too intense for theaters. This also marks the first time Digital Extras will be available on Evil Dead."

Evil Dead and Don’t Breathe helmer Fede Alvarez is set to bring Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips’ comic book series Incognito to the big screen, directing a script from rising screenwriter Daniel Casey (10 Cloverfield Lane, Kin, Godforsaken).
Initially published by Marvel’s Icon imprint before moving over to Image Comics, Incognito follows Zach Overkill “a super villain who turns evidence against his boss, ending up in a witness protection program in which he’s administered drugs to suppress his powers and given a low-level job. But the man starts to chafe under his ‘normal life’ and when he finds a way to get his powers back, must decide what kind of life he wants to lead.”

Immediately after (quite successfully) pivoting into original material with Don’t Breathe, director Fede Alvarez is going back to adapting other peoples’ work. This one isn’t a remake like Alvarez’ breakout film, 2013’s Evil Dead, though. No, this time Alvarez, presumably looking for a light, easy project, is venturing into a subgenre of action filmmaking that, historically, has come with little public scrutiny and low expectations from fans. That’s right, he’s making a comic-book movie.
He’s not being sucked up into the Marvel or DC cinematic machines, though. (Not yet, at least. Give it time.) Instead, Sony has hired him to direct an adaptation of crime-story specialists Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips’ Incognito limited series, which was originally published by Marvel’s creator-owned Icon imprint back in 2008. Drawing from vintage pulp heroes like The Shadow and Doc Savage, Incognito follows the adventures of an ...

Six years is an awfully long time for any artist to go silent, and such an absence is all the more palpable in the case of Lee Chang-dong, whose previous features (most prominently Secret Sunshine and Poetry) are considered by critics and, judging from the festival awards, his peers to be among the finest his prolific South Korea’s produced this century. Consider it a relief, then, that Chosun Media (via The Playlist) tell us Lee’s looking to begin shooting his next feature in November — “if things run smoothly,” he added as a condition.
Kang Dong-won and Yoo Ah-in, themselves some of the nation’s biggest stars, are expected to lead the mystery thriller, in which two men (one rich, one poor) become entangled with a woman. What happens from there (e.g. why it’s even a “mystery thriller) is just for us to guess right now, though »

While much has been said about the disappointing slate of blockbuster films this year, horror fans have certainly made out like bandits. In the first half, we were treated to the surprisingly good horror/thriller 10 Cloverfield Lane, the spiritual successor to the 2008 original. More recently, fans got to experience Don’t Breathe, another horror/thriller about a blind man kicking the asses of his would-be home invaders.
Both films exceeded expectations of quality, and fans are undoubtedly ready to follow the talent behind each of those films. Well, according to THR and Collider, Fede Alvarez, the director of Don’t Breathe, and Daniel Casey, one of the writers of 10 Cloverfield Lane (who I’m assuming was an uncredited rewrite for the the film), have signed on to direct and write, respectively an adaptation of the comic entitled Incognito.
Here’s what THR had to say about the source material:

Fede Alvarez’s “Don’t Breathe,” about three friends who become trapped in a blind veteran’s house after planning to rob him, is one of the year’s most acclaimed horror films, with IndieWire’s own Eric Kohn describing it as a “dazzling example” of the home invasion thriller. After the success of “Don’t Breathe” and his 2013 “Evil Dead” reboot film, Alvarez has become of Hollywood’s most sought-after directors, and according to The Hollywood Reporter, he’s already attached to an upcoming comic book film: An adaptation of Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips’ comic book limited series “Incognito” for Sony Pictures.
The original series follows Zach Overkill, a supervillain who is in Witness Protection after testifying against a powerful hero The Black Death. Though required to take a drug »

Don’t Breathe, 2016.
Directed by Fede Alvarez.
Three hard up thieves’ target a war veteran who they believe is sitting on a hefty pay out after the death of his daughter. Considering his blindness and his age they all think this will be an easy score but as they soon learn after breaking in, things aren’t that simple.
Don’t Breathe is an intense experience. Don’t be too fooled by its simple home invasion premise, the film twists and turns into one of the most unpredictable horrors of recent times. It’s a relentless ride of pure dread. Director Fede Alvarez wastes no time in keying us into the type of movie we are going to see. Right from the opening shot (and indeed the trailer), it’s clear that there is something sinister about Stephen Lang’s blind veteran. »

With 2013’s Evil Dead remake, Fede Alvarez had the unenviable task of re-doing the gore soaked cult classic for a new generation as his feature debut. And he pulled it off with style and copious amounts of fake blood, putting himself on a lot horror fans radar as a name to keep an eye on. Now three years later, we finally have his follow-up in Don’t Breathe, and make no mistake, this man is destined for great things. What starts out as normal home invasion movie (albeit one where we’re expected to root for the invaders) becomes so much more as three down and out teens from Detroit (Jane Levy, Dylan Minette, and Daniel Zovatto) aim to earn enough money to escape their dead end lives by robbing the home of a reclusive blind army veteran (Stephen Lang, credited only as the Blind Man), who is said to »

Blair Witch, 2016.
Directed by Adam Wingard.
A group of college students venture into the Black Hills Forest in Maryland to unravel the mystery of the legendary Blair Witch.
When Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez’s micro-budget 1999 shocker The Blair Witch Project hit the screens, it was heralded by perhaps the most ingenious marketing campaign of modern times. There was a tsunami of hype prior to its release, with the film-makers insistence that the footage was genuine, and was found in the Black Hills near Burkittsville, Maryland in 1994. The film was their tribute to the 3 young film-makers documenting the local legend of the Blair Witch; Heather Donahue, Michael C. Williams, and Joshua Leonard, who were all presumed dead. In the early days of the Internet, Haxan film’s viral website blairwitch.com was very convincing »

Evil Dead fans will soon be able to get their hands on an extended edition of Fede Alvarez’s 2013 remake, with the Don’t Breathe director revealing in an interview with Altapeli that the extended cut will hit Blu-ray in time for Halloween.
An extended version of Alvarez’s Evil Dead has been airing on Channel 4 and Film 4 in the UK since 2015, which Movie-Censorship reports is 4 minutes 50 seconds longer than the theatrical version. Along with 21 additional scenes (many of which had been removed at the request of the MPAA), it also features an alternative ending.

Burglars break into the wrong house in an efficient but uninvolving horror
A grimly efficient but somewhat depressing horror picture pits a trio of housebreaking youngsters against a blind war veteran. Sound design is cranked up to a nerve-shredding overload as the teenagers negotiate creaking floorboards and crunching glass to try and escape the deadly old man with a gun. The camera lurches towards a sledgehammer above a workbench, leaving us in no doubt that it will be employed in some horribly gory way later on in the film. But while the director, Fede Alvarez (who was responsible for the 2013 remake of The Evil Dead), pushes all the torture porn tension buttons, it’s hard to care much what happens to any of the highly unsympathetic cast.

Don’t Breathe review by Paul Heath, September 2016.
Original thrillers, those of quality anyway, are pretty thin on the ground these days. Occasionally something will come along that will blows you away, but it’s been a little disappointing of late. Bordering on horror, Evil Dead helmer Fede Alvarez‘s latest is a departure from his big Hollywood debut, this time leaving the supernatural world for a thriller featuring a minimal cast and an absolute bastard of an antagonist.
Don’t Breathe tells the story of three young inhabitants of a Detroit suburb – Rocky (Jane Levy), Alex (Dylan Minnette) and Money (Daniel Zovatto). The three are introduced to us in the middle of a home robbery where they set about a property »

Fede Alvarez, the Uruguayan filmmaker known for helming “Evil Dead,” is having an outstanding summer as his latest horror flick, “Don’t Breathe,” continues to dominate the box office. With a budget of under $10 million, the thriller is heading for a great second week, taking in about $54 million in its first two weeks.
In celebration of his success, Alvarez took to Reddit for an "Ask Me Anything" this week where he spoke about working with Sam Raimi, indie filmmakers taking on blockbusters, and writing a sequel for “Evil Dead.”

Here’s what he had to say:

Don’t Breathe, 2016.
Directed by Fede Alvarez.
A trio of reckless thieves breaks into the house of a wealthy blind man, thinking they’ll get away with the perfect heist. They’re wrong.
Sometimes the most simple premise yields the most unforgettable and most entertaining results, and such is the case with Fede Alvarez’s follow up to his gore-tastic Evil Dead remake, Don’t Breathe. A bunch of young punks from the rundown streets of the nastier parts of Detroit trying to rob a retired blind Army veteran in his 80s sounds awesome admittedly, but the kind of awesome that you turn on while randomly surfing Netflix at 4 Am looking for something fun/mindless to watch. Rest assured, Don’t Breathe is so much more than that, taking a basic plot and injecting it with pitch perfect execution »
