Don’t Breathe was a strange kind of horror/thriller in that there were a great deal of shades of gray in terms of who were the good guys and who were the bad guys. The protagonists in this story are three kids who break into people’s houses and rob them. They find out that a blind, Iraq war veter... Read more of this blog post »
