It's time for a young African American to meet with his white girlfriend's parents for a weekend in their secluded estate in the woods, but before long, the friendly and polite ambience will give way to a nightmare.
Rocky, a young woman wanting to start a better life for her and her sister, agrees to take part in the robbery of a house owned by a wealthy blind man with her boyfriend Money and their friend Alex. But when the blind man turns out to be a more ruthless adversary than he seems, the group must find a way to escape his home before they become his latest victims.
In Brazil and South Korea the film is called "Man in the Dark," which was the original English working title. See more »
When Rocky is removing the cash from the safe, the cash straps are blue. American Bankers Association blue straps are for $1 bills in increments of 100 ($100). She is shown removing 8 stacks, the only clearly visible stack contains 7 straps. That's $5,600. See more »
I was looking forward to seeing this film. It sounded like an interesting concept and had the potential to be scary, but it didn't take me long to realise that I was in for a big disappointment.
The characters, for a start, are poorly developed and thoroughly dislikable. The one thing all great horrors have in common is the ability to engage with the characters and actually care for what happens to them. With 'Don't Breathe', I didn't care whether any of the characters lived or died.
The plot is silly and we have yet another case of characters avoiding doing the bloody obvious for entertainment purposes. I expected so much more from this film, it was poor in all aspects.
