Feature Review: Don’t Breathe (2016)

On a special side note, Don’t Breathe is the second film from Fede Alverez covered on Horror News Radio by the Grue-crew. The first one was his first film Evil Dead which we covered on the very first episode of the show. It took 178 episodes to get to his second feature. The film is out now in theaters and the question is “Does it deliver?” The answer is what you are wanting to hear. Doc, Santos and Thomas dive into the film, discussing the acting chops of Stephen Lang, the directing slieght of hand of Fede Alverez and the shocking surprises hiding in the dark, frightening basement. Take a deep breath, here we go!
