Between the string of delays and cancellations that have occurred during the last year due to the pandemic and the gradual return to normality that returns to bring great titles to the fore, I had almost completely forgotten the existence of a sequel to the fantastic ‘ Do not breathe ‘of Fede Alvarez; but today, thanks to USA Today, I have taken a little joy.
The North American media has given us a first look to the feature film in the form of an image in which we can see Stephen Lang’s Blind Man wielding a hammer. But this brief advance is not all, because it has brought under the arm a synopsis that promises to turn the screw —Or two, if you hurry me — I saw it on the original tape.
“The Blind Man has been hiding for several years in an isolated cabin and has adopted and raised a young woman who was orphaned in a fire. Her quiet life is shattered when a group of criminals kidnap the girl, forcing the Blind Man to abandon his refuge to save her. “
Either I am very wrong, or in ‘Don’t breathe 2’ it will turn the tables and They are going to place us on the side of the Blind Man, who now seems to go from being the antagonist of the story to adopting the title role. Whether or not this is the case – this synopsis is vague enough not to give us all chewed up and keep a few tricks up our sleeves – the film has all my interest.
‘Don’t breathe 2’ will premiere on August 13, 2021 – surprisingly, its original release date – and will be directed by Rodo Sayagues; producer and scriptwriter of the first part and writer of the brutal ‘Infernal Possession’ by Fede Álvarez, which on this occasion he writes and produces. With it reaching half the levels of tension and squalor of the 2016 title, I’ll be more than satisfied.
By the way, since we’re talking about Álvarez, don’t miss his ‘Calls’ on Apple TV +, which is the bomb.
