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 liked it, It had a little tiny supernatural twist which I liked, was not too violent, and fast moving,

Outstanding horror film. Good twist to this movie, you find yourself switching sides in the movie, as in who you believe is in the right/wrong.

An interesting movie, I am not sure who I really was rooting for in this film, the young group of burglars or the blind man. Frankly I thought the blind man was more the victim in this film but it did turn out he was sack of cats crazy. I did also notice two big plot holes, I don't want to spoil anything but these involved a missing person and the basement. Overall a clever "horror" film.

Teens locked in battle with a crazed killer. Not exactly original, although they did try to spice it up with an unusual setting.
But they just couldn't refrain from the stereotypical features of a slasher movie: who's next to get sliced and diced, how many times can the mad killer get clocked in the noggin and still spring up as good as new, how many thwarted near-escapes etc.
