A very limiting breath experience. As you sit back to enjoy (or stand-as I was), you begin to question if you should even be watching.
As the viewer, you are there to witness the fearful experience of a blind man and what he sees. Writer/director Fede Alvarez told us that while in his previous film Evil Dead, revolved around demons, this film centers a little more on reality, which is just as (if not more) scary. On choosing the title, Don't Breath, he gave an honest and simple answer, 'holding your breath is something you'll be doing a lot in the film'. In fact, he confessed that the idea for the title came from the viewer's feedback after screening the movie. With enough oxygen for all of us, it's safe to say breathing will be allowed during the film.
As part of a little press day fun, we got to hang out with some colleagues at Countdown Live Escape in downtown Los Angeles. We gave in and took the Don’t Breathe Experience: an escape room themed to the film. We got locked in a room and left to unravel the mystery. An adventure close enough to a breathless experience, we got to escape the room just in time. The experience is intense and inspired by the premise of Don't Breath.
The venue is equipped with different experiences where you solve puzzles and decipher clues in order to find the key to unlock the door. You can find out more about Countdown Live Escape here.
