The director Fede Álvarez got the idea to the upcoming nail bitter, Don’t Breathe, as he was growing up in Montevideo, Uruguay.
In Don’t Breathe, we meet three friends with a shortage of cash and faulty moral compasses. When they get news about a blind man who might have $300,000 stashed in his home, they see a solution to their problems. They come up with a plan to break into the man’s home, grab the cash and get out of there. It’s just one small problem; the blind man isn’t keen on having visitors snooping around his home.
Judging by the trailer, it seems that tension will rise between the man and his uninvited visitors, with a few twists and turns, lurking inside the house.
The movie stars Jane Levy, who reunites with Álvarez after the Evil Dead reboot they worked on a couple of years ago. Stephen Lang, known from the movie Avatar and the TV-show Terra Nova, plays the blind man.
Don’t Breathe will sneak into the theaters on 26 August 2016 (USA) and why don’t you check out the trailer below and see what you think.

Even though most would never set their sole on an unknown planet, Bloober relished it. The mere thought of exploring a new world for edible life, sent his mind spinning and his acid glands in overdrive. He had been so optimistic about this planet before he descended upon it. That was many sun lapses ago, though, and the only sign of life he had slip over, was dry fossil bones and withered debris of ancient structures.
The dark silhouette had details now and Bloober could recognize an oval body, with a head and four limbs attached to it, two supporting ones and two hanging at the sides. A classic design, just as he suspected.

The bet was crazy, like the look in the Major’s grey, bloodshot eyes. Jack couldn’t help it, not if he wanted to leave in one piece. The droid whirled as it prepared to throw that last, life-changing, card on the table. With a pop, the card flew through the air, thick of smoke and anticipation.

The dinner knife slid into Eric’s throat like butter. He sniveled and froze in his seat. A couple of guests gasped, gazing confounded at them. They had known about it, long before she stumbled upon them, going at it like rabbits. Now it was her turn to be demoralizing.
