The Writers’ View
Although the cast were small but they can be considered as today’s great generation of screams and horror. Dylan is well with his role, giving sufficient understanding with his character. Both of the young actors were placed through hell, but their physical acts sell their riotous ordeal realistically. Meanwhile, it is Stephen Lang that became the movie’s shining beacon. Being the enemy, Lang is memorable and frightening directly, a scary force that pervades throughout the movie even in pictures that don’t have his presence. If there’s a gripe about the movie, there’s a twist in the plot that didn’t quite work, but it is a minor condition when compared to the numerous matters in the film that is right and goes well. The movie is a technical attainment, the unusual studio movie that really pushes what movies can give as a medium. For more Don’t Breathe trailer you can visit this site.
