Fede Alvarez is getting amazing reviews at SXSW with Don’t Breathe which is “Like Hitchcock On Crack!”
…at least according to Bloody Disgusting’s review of Fede Alvarez’s new movie Don’t Breathe, which was screened at SXSW this past weekend. And honestly, we’re pretty confident that Bloody Disgusting know good horror when they see it, so we have one badass horror movie to look forward to.
Don’t Breathe is Fede Alvarez’s first movie after his Evil Dead remake in 2013, which most people can agree on was a great horror movie. Even if you don’t like it when the classics are remade, you have to acknowledge that they respected the original. Then again, how could they not, when both the director of the original The Evil Dead from 1981 (horror legend Sam Raimi) and the original star of the movie (horror icon Bruce Campbell) were both on board as producers.
In any case, this time around Fede Alvarez is giving us a brand new story with Don’t Breathe and the plot is as follows:
A group of teens break into a blind man’s home thinking they’ll get away with the perfect crime. They’re wrong.
The cast consists of talented people like Dylan Minnette (Goosebumps), Stephen Lang (Exeter), Jane Levy (Evil Dead) and Daniel Zovatto (It Follows).
Don’t Breathe is written by Fede Alvarez himself along with Rodo Sayagues, who helped pen the screenplay for Evil Dead, so we seem to be in very safe hands.
The previous title of the movie was A Man in the Dark, but it has now changed its title to Don’t Breathe. At least this is the official title at SXSW even though it’s still listed as “Untitled Fede Alvarez/Ghost House Thriller” on IMDb
Don’t Breathe has an expected release date of August 26, 2016. Watch the trailer right here!
