Don't Breathe 2
is a sequel to the 2016 horror movie Don't Breathe,
a movie that introduced interesting new takes on the home-invasion thriller. The original
kept audiences captivated with strategically built tension, a progressive feeling of dread, and a few disturbing twists. Unfortunately, Don't Breathe 2
ditches its predecessor's cleverness and sense of foreboding for a clunky script, questionable storyline, and far too many poorly executed story arcs for its approximately 90-minute runtime.
As far as genres go, horror
has been marred with a notoriously bad rap for being misogynistic and callous toward women. Whether or not you believe that statement applies to the genre overall, it is most definitely applicable to this movie. Spoilers for Don't Breathe
