When Jane Levy's character is suspended and about to be introduced to a very slimy turkey baster, our protagonist cuts the crotch out of her pants quite badly, dare I say even shredding them around her nether-regions. Later, when she's backing out of the car's trunk we can see that her pants are intact. What gives? See more »
You're useless out here!

After Evil Dead's well-made remake, a lot of us felt that Fede Alvarez was a director to watch. With Don't Breathe, he definitely became a director I'm very excited to see future projects from.
I admire his knack to generate tension. After the film kicks off, there is really no stopping. It became almost unbearable at the end, nearly reaching the point of overkill. When you have a thriller filled with so much tension throughout its running time, there's only so much you can do before you start yelling "you gotta be kidding me" at the screen.
The cinematography was beautiful and moody and the performances were fine, except maybe Jane Levy, who I felt was too wooden, making her character a little bit unlikable.
Don't Breathe was a solid effort and a great addition to the home invasion genre with a little twist.
