Don’t Breathe — “the year’s best horror movie” in a good year for horror — is everything that supposedly doesn’t exist anymore. It’s an original idea (check) with a female lead (check) that was released in the summer (check) and made a lot of money on a tiny budget (check). The film has also done wonders for the turkey baster industry. So, naturally, a sequel is already in the works.
Co-writer Rodo Sayagues told Coming Soon that there’s “going to be more Don’t Breathe.” Director Fede Alvarez, who also helmed 2013’s not-great-but-still-better-than-it-should-be Evil Dead remake (and is currently working on The Girl In The Spider’s Web, a sequel to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) added, “We just started, but we know exactly where it goes. But we won’t tell you right now. But there will be more Don’t Breathe for sure.” Even a blind man — or The Blind Man — can see the obvious: of course, Sony Pictures wants a sequel to a movie that earned $152 million against a $10 million budget. The original even sets up future films by — spoiler alert — not killing the primary villain. He’s somewhere out there, ready to artificially inseminate at will.
Turkey basters are the new chainsaw arms.
