Review: DON'T BREATHE Speeds Through Tight Turns With Wild Abandon

A muscular thriller, Don't Breathe manhandles a vaguely familiar premise into a fresh, frenzied experience. Directed by Fede Alvarez (2013's Evil Dead), the setup is brisk. Three Detroit teenagers (Jane Levy, Dylan Minette, Daniel Zovatto) have made an art out...

EVIL DEAD Red Band Trailer Certainly Is... Red. Very. Red.
