Trivia

The address for the house used to film the exterior shots of the Blind Man's home is actually 2488 Buena Vista St, Detroit, MI 48238. When looking at the street view on Google Maps, most of the neighboring houses appear to be abandoned, just like in the movie. In fact, it doesn't look like anything about this location was changed for the sake of filming. See more »

Many gripping moments,but a bit stretched. Classic nonetheless.
27 August 2016 | by ninadmauskarSee all my reviews

The movie is a low budget movie but will surely have commercial success thanks to the direction and screenplay. The movie is mostly positive. There are several thrilling moments. The direction is awesome, the story line is brilliant, the script and the overall make is very good. Everyone has acted well. The setup is scary. The background score also adds to the tense moments. One of the scenes is inspired from the old classic 'Wait until Dark'. The story should have ended 15 minutes earlier, but it continues.

Overall, a thumbs up. Watch this movie. Don't bring kids under 16 to the movie theater. There are some scenes that you don't want the kids to watch.
