Maybe director Fede Alvarez had a terrifying experience in a basement as a kid. First Mia descends into her own personal hell in a dank cellar in Evil Dead, and now Don’t Breathe is set to strike a similar level of terror into the hearts of basement-phobics. The international trailer for Don’t Breathe is finally available to view, and there’s nothing that these poor unfortunates go through that I’m a tiny bit jealous of. Be warned, the trailer does reveal what may be a major plot twist for Don’t Breathe.There are certainly a good number of striking similarities between Evil Dead and Don’t Breathe — it even stars the same leading lady, Jane Levy! Maybe it’s a sign that Fede Alvarez has Evil Dead 2 on his mind? Please? That’s not to say that Don’t Breathe doesn’t stand alone. Reminiscent of Intruders and Hush, Don’t Breathe looks set to be the best home invasion horror of 2016.
Don’t Breathe hits August 26, 2016. Will you be watching?
