Sony Pictures’ Don’t Breathe was considered the high point of the 2016 horror movie lineup — we’ve got two months to go, but anything topping it in this period is unlikely. Now it’s coming to Blu-Ray, DVD and cloud vapor, loaded with behind-the-scenes content and deleted scenes. To drum up hype, Sony has released one of these scenes on their YouTube channel.
These are our “good guys” — two thieves who think they’ve found their biggest mark yet. One of them has an ethical slant he uses to justify his actions, while the bouncy girl (Jane Levy from Suburgatory) just takes whatever she wants. They think robbing the mansion of a blind man is going to be a cakewalk….what they don’t know is that he’s much worse than they are, and his heightened senses due to the loss of his sight makes him a deadly hunter. The title refers to the fact that he can hear someone breathing, so don’t do that, Jane Levy.
Without giving too much away, some of you should be given a trigger warning about a twist in this movie. It goes to a place horror films normally don’t. Don’t Breathe will be released November 8 on digital and November 29 on Blu. Sony’s press release follows.
From director Fede Alvarez and the twisted minds behind Evil Dead comes the terrifying, critically acclaimed DON’T BREATHE, debuting on digital November 8 and Blu-ray and DVD November 29 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
Hailed as “the best American horror film in twenty years” (Jim Hemphill, Filmmaker Magazine) and Certified Fresh (87%) on Rotten Tomatoes, the film debuted at #1 at the box office and remained in the top spot for two weekends in a row. Starring Jane Levy (Evil Dead), Dylan Minnette (Goosebumps), Daniel Zovatto (It Follows), and Stephen Lang (Avatar), the film follows a group of thieves who break into a blind man’s home thinking they’ll get away with the perfect crime. When the blind man reveals a dark side, the trio quickly discovers they were dead wrong.
The Blu-ray, DVD, and digital releases come loaded with bonus content that takes viewers behind the scenes of the filmmaking experience alongside the cast and crew. Director Fede Alvarez takes fans through five featurettes, including “No Escape,” “Creating the Creepy House,” “Meet the Cast,” “Man in the Dark,” and “The Sounds of Horror.” In addition, the releases include eight deleted scenes with optional Director’s Commentary and full feature commentary with Director Fede Alvarez, Co-Writer Rodo Sayagues, and Actor Stephen Lang.
Also from director Alvarez, EVIL DEAD UNRATED is now available on digital platforms. Fans will be able to see Fede’s unedited vision for the film with five additional minutes that were too intense for theaters. This also marks the first time Digital Extras will be available on Evil Dead.
Directed by Fede Alvarez and written by Fede Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues, DON’T BREATHE was produced by Sam Rami, Rob Tapert, and Fede Alvarez. The film was executive produced by Nathan Kahane, Joe Drake, Erin Westerman, J.R. Young, and Mathew Hart.
From the twisted minds behind Evil Dead comes a new terrifying experience. Three young thieves (Jane Levy, Dylan Minnette, Daniel Zovatto) fight for their lives after breaking into the home of a blind man (Stephen Lang) who has a dark side.
