CULVER CITY, Calif. (Oct. 17, 2016) – From director Fede Alvarez and the twisted minds behind Evil Dead comes the terrifying, critically acclaimed film, DON’T BREATHE, debuting on digital November 8 and Blu-ray™ and DVD November 29 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Hailed as “the best American horror film in twenty years” (Jim Hemphill, FILMMAKER MAGAZINE) and Certified Fresh (87%) on Rotten Tomatoes, the film debuted at #1 at the box office and remained in the top spot for two weekends in a row. Starring Jane Levy (Evil Dead), Dylan Minnette (Goosebumps), Daniel Zovatto (It Follows) and Stephen Lang (Avatar), the film follows a group of thieves who break into a blind man’s home thinking they’ll get away with the perfect crime. When the blind man reveals a dark side, the trio quickly discovers they were dead wrong.
The Blu-ray, DVD and digital releases come loaded with bonus content that takes viewers behind-the-scenes of the filmmaking experience alongside the cast and crew. Director Fede Alvarez takes fans through five featurettes, including “No Escape,” “Creating the Creepy House,” “Meet the Cast,” “Man in the Dark” and “The Sounds of Horror.” In addition, the releases include eight deleted scenes with optional Director’s Commentary and full feature commentary with Director Fede Alvarez, Co-Writer Rodo Sayagues and Actor Stephen Lang.
