One of the best horror thrillers of the year. Director Fede Alvarez delivers on a pulse-pounding movie about three young adults attempting to rob an old blind man. Only problem being, the blind man isn’t going to allow himself to be a victim. I really enjoyed the real tension this movie brought about. Stephen Lang does a great job as the imposing blind man, who had me conflicted at times whether I wanted to root for him and against him. The first half of the movie has the feel of Cloverfield Lane (another top thriller this year), while the second half has a very different and tone, much more horror driven. It’s an indie horror that has high quality acting, directing and production value. A movie that had me feeling uneasy and on the edge throughout.
