All in all, The Open House was a passable horror. Not particularly good or bad. Just passable. The problem was that it focused too much on the buildup but the reveal of the culprit did not really pay off.

While I felt that some of the characters deserved a better ending, I was completely hooked by Don’t Breathe from beginning to end. I loved every moment, even though I felt like I was about to pee with terror the entire time. It was a master class in horror. Moral of the story, Never mess with Stephen Lang, whether he’s playing Col. Miles Quatrich or a blind guy, he will kick your ass.
