More Info:
  • Brad Wheeler

    A home invasion story that is as artfully terrifying as "Home Alone" was entertainingly hilarious.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Katie Walsh

    The tension never lets up and the shocking twists in the story need to be seen to be believed.

    The Seattle Times Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    Don’t Breathe is a small delight, like stumbling across a shiny silver dollar.

    MTV News Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    Like the best claustrophobic thrillers, the film keeps finding clever new ways to complicate what initially seems like a limited setting with limited story options.

    The Verge Full Review
  • Christian Holub

    Thought-provoking but rather lacking in the second-by-second scares genre fans tend to expect.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    Half a century after "Wait Until Dark" pitted a blind Audrey Hepburn against the three crooks trying to get into her apartment, along comes Don’t Breathe to successfully invert its scenario.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    This elegant and surprisingly fast-paced blend of horror and suspense overcomes some of its more ridiculous ingredients thanks to endless invention.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    There isn’t a single false scare. There isn’t, come to think of it, a scare that doesn’t set up another scare.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    [Alvarez is] a master at orchestrating tension in close quarters, at painting his characters into a corner one minute and dangling them out a window the next.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    Don’t Breathe is a master class in tension, and while its script could have been written on the back of an envelope, its editing and use of sound design is a triumph for film theorists.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Kim Newman

    An intense, streamlined exercise in gruesome thrills, with a tiny glimmer of social context (it’s all about the economy) which doesn’t take away from the exciting struggle to get out of this house of horrors.

    Empire Full Review
  • Edward Douglas

    With his second film, Alvarez has mastered the tension of Hitchcock and the misdirection of a magician, proving himself to be a filmmaker of merit even when dealing with more realistic horrors.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • John DeFore

    A trapped-in-a-house thriller pitting thieves against an unexpectedly resourceful victim, the lean and mean pic offers scares aplenty and at least a couple of game-changing twists.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    One of the most suspenseful, terrifying, and devilishly original horror pics in recent memory.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    What makes this so memorably nerve-frying is the way Alvarez and cinematographer Pedro Luque use night-vision and every trick in the book and ones not invented yet to trap us in their vise. Claustrophobics, you've been warned.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Apart from its thin characters and occasional trite moments, as well as a silly attempt to set up a sequel, Don’t Breathe is just about perfect. It’s as lean and relentless as the best John Carpenter films.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Walter Addiego

    It’s best to accept Don’t Breathe as simply a piece of lowdown fun — connoisseurs of creepy and sometimes brutal chills will have a good time.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Don’t Breathe is an impressively photographed, well-acted, relentlessly paced horror film sure to sicken some and delight others with its twisted sense of humor.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Jimmy Geurts

    Many of the movie's scariest moments come from the skillful use of silence or the increasingly limited space the characters inhabit.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Brian Tallerico

    Like a lot of films of this breed, Don’t Breathe gets a little less interesting as it proceeds to its inevitable conclusion, replacing tension with shock value, but it works so well up to that point that your heart will likely be beating too fast to care. Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Director Fede Alvarez (who did the “Evil Dead” remake) masterfully sustains a little more than an hour of shocks. Eventually, though, he resorts to the ideas lazy or unobservant filmmakers employ.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    I could have done without a talky, explain everybody’s motivations third act. But there’s no getting around the crowd-pleasing nature of the bloody, vengeful and self-righteous wrath that rains down upon one and all in the finale.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Anita Gates

    It will probably please fans of this simple genre with its solid suspense, murky lighting and “gotcha!” scares.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Britt Hayes

    Alvarez has crafted an intense, relentless and confident thriller that only occasionally fails.

    ScreenCrush Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Alvarez puts us in the interesting position of rooting for the bad guy, and continually changing our ideas of who that is, a genuinely intriguing idea. Don’t Breathe doesn’t always live up to that potential, but for much of the movie it comes close.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    Alvarez proves adept at springing surprises in these moments, a skill that combines all the art and technique of moviemaking with the architecture of 3D level-planning and the carny showmanship of building a professional haunted house.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Dennis Harvey

    A muscular exercise in brutal, relentless peril that should please genre fans.

    Variety Full Review
  • Pat Padua

    Despite the violence, the real horror of Don’t Breathe may be the sense of futility that all its characters feel, whether they can see or not.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    The film is a clever if increasingly mechanical suspense contraption, yanking our sympathies this way and that, before turning into a different sort of movie entirely.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Ed Gonzalez

    The film's sustainment of its corkscrew tension is so elegant and methodical as to feel dance-like.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Michael Nordine

    Don’t Breathe makes a striking first impression but overstays its welcome.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

the most part, you’re in the hands of a capable lunatic who has a tale to tell.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Daniel Schindel

    Don’t Breathe makes for a very fun little thriller, though it also veers into being exceptionally stupid or eye-rollingly gross (although admittedly, it is sometimes more than one of these things simultaneously)

    The Film Stage Full Review
  • Charlie Schmidlin

    Alvarez’s visual flair and handle on tone can only mask his paper-thin characters and motivations for so long.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    An original thriller about a home-invasion robbery gone wrong. To clarify, that would be “wrong” as in “not according to plan” – but also “wrong” as in “so dementedly repugnant, it just isn’t right.”

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    You start out fearing Don’t Breathe, but by the end you’re laughing at it — and the humor is not intentional.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    More methodical than innovative, Don’t Breathe is nevertheless an effective suspenser.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Marten Carlson

    There is an unpredictability to the film that is, at times, refreshing. This unpredictability turns into meandering, however, leading to narrative incoherence at many points.
