I Saw Don't Breathe Today and I Caught Myself Holding My Breath
  • POSTED BY elheber on Aug 28, 2016

    I was invited to the movies today. The food was shit, but the movie was good.

    It’s about a trio of burglars going for one last big score, a blind guy’s house, except the heist goes wrong and blind guy turns out to be a murder machine who locks them in. “Suspenseful” could be describing it lightly. A few times everything goes completely quiet and the protagonists try their damnedest to not make a peep, and in some of those moments I realized that I, too, was holding my breath. It’s the same thing that happens to me during underwater scenes as well. I can’t control that reflex for some reason.

    The audience around me were good people, the loud kind that makes a movie better. “Run, stupid bitch!” The movie sort of goads the audience into action by having the protagonists do stupid shit.

    The entire movie theater goes quiet too; you could hear a pin drop. In hindsight, I really wish I would have finished my drink and in one of those moments of silence… SLURP REALLY LOUDLY.
