A very terrorizing tale, especially for the thieves that get caught up in the intricacies of a house heist!

One of the most beautifully shot horror movies I've had the pleasure of seeing. Very stressful and holds up extremely well even on a second viewing.

This was a decent movie. It was exciting and suspenseful at some points. It was very dramatic. The only problem was that you didn’t really connect with any of the people as none of them were really good. I did like though that in the scenes that were supposed to be in complete darkness that they made it so that we knew that the scene was supposed to be like that be made it light enough so we could actually see the characters. Another problem was it wasn’t very believable. Yes I know it’s a movie but still for a blind person to do all that is really unrealistic. The movie was still likeable though as it wasn’t one of the worse horror movies I have watched. The ending wasn’t great though either.

I honestly wish they called this movie Don’t Watch, it would’ve saved me the time.

A scary and horror movie with twists and turns. I have been holding my breathe throughout.

Directed by Fede Álvarez in 2016, this American thriller depicts the life-or-death struggle of three friends who get trapped inside the house of a blind man who has a dark side while they search for a bag of money.
The DVD cover says "The Best Twist in Years."
So I've figured that the blind man would turn out to be a father of a girl---one of the thieves.
I was wrong.
In any case, the film turns the home invasion thriller into an excellent entertainment piece.
Although I didn't really care about the blind man and three thieves, I enjoyed this thriller to the hilt.

Oh the plot holes....sure hold your breath as this crazy BLIND guy BLINDLY walks right by you. Dont bother giving him a whack to the head and knocking him out. So lame. Ok cool (?) twist ( more like lame gross out to shock.people) at the end but one of those twists that just lazily appears with the writers not bothering to lead the augience to it with subtle hints to give us an ahha! moment.
Only watch if you are as idiotic as these 3 thieves!

As if portraying a blind war hero as both pitiful victim and psychotic bogeyman isn't hard enough to swallow (although Stephen Lang’s grizzled beard and milky contacts put him firmly in character), director Fede Alvarez offers the usual ridiculous twists and groan moments—I lost count of the number of times everyone COULD have escaped—and then tacks on a silly "Silence of the Lambs" backstory so full of implausible holes that the entire production should have sank. Only it didn’t. The film’s sheer chutzpah manages to propel it past its own potholes and Alvarez displays a real talent for turning the highly unlikely into a riveting thriller set in a funhouse full of way too many doors and hallways. A few clever tracking shots float past ceilings and walls as the three robbers try to get in (and then out) and night vision camerawork hasn’t looked this creepy since that little demon kid scraped her toenails along the floor in 2007’s "[REC]". Hell, even a growling nod to "Cujo" is pulled off with a straight face that dares you to crack a smile. And it’s all fired off with so much suspenseful gusto that it isn’t until after the credits finish rolling that you realize you’ve been had. A bit of advice however, if you’re squeamish about semen you may want to close your eyes—you’ll know when.

This was a solid thriller film without too much gore but with loads of psychological suspense. There is a huge plot twist near the end that made this movie better than just okay. I wouldn't watch it again, but I would encourage everyone to watch it once if they enjoy movies where the characters are all gray and there isn't a true hero.

loved it wish there was a sequel to this one some dumb acting but very intense with lots of twist and turns.

I want to be a surfer.
-There's no surf in Michigan.
Above 10k, it's major larceny. That means 10 years if we get caught.
There is nothing a man cannot do once he accepts the fact that there is no god.
It's kind of messed up to rob a blind guy, isn't it?
-Just because he's blind doesn't mean he's a saint, bro.
God? There is no god. It's a joke
Now you're gonna see what I see.
