After months and months of some seriously big movies, summer is starting to finally wind down, and as a result we have ourselves a weekend with some smaller titles set to come out. We have three movies on tap, with a robbery gone wrong, a boxing story, and all the Jason Statham you can handle. Get ready for Don't Breathe, Hands of Stone and Mechanic: Resurrection. It's gonna be a Rotten Week!

Don't Breathe
Rotten Watch Prediction
85%

In Don't Breathe, three young adults enter the house of a blind man intent on robbing the dude, only to find out they've stumbled upon the lair of a quasi-psychopath. Should they have robbed the house in the first place? Of course not. But you have to at least feel for this trio as they navigate their way through a Silence of the Lambs-like scene of torture and intensity. It looks scary as hell.

Don't Breathe is crushing it with critics right now, sitting at 87% with 15 reviews posted. They're calling it tense and thrilling. I can see why. Directed by Fede Alvarez, who also helmed the remake of Evil Dead (61%), it looks like he's touched on all the elements of a solid horror flick. Keep the pace moving and the scares intense. I usually make fun of horror movies because they are cookie cutter and ridiculous, playing on the same old tropes and cliches. But every once in a while something comes along that's worth watching. Don't Breathe, it seems, is just that.
