Don't Breathe

Don't Breathe was released into theaters on August 26th, 2016. Filming locations include Detroit, Mi. It was directed by Fede Alvarez. He also directed the The Evil Dead remake, three years earlier. Jane Levy plays Rocky, the films heroine. She was in The Evil Dead remake as well. The films villain, depending on how you look at it, is played by Stephen Lang. He's best known for Avatar, but I'll always remember him for his character Ike Clanton, from Tombstone. Don't Breathe was a big breath of fresh horror movie air when it was released and it features one of the more memorable plot twists in recent years. The score was done by Roque Banos. The films first DVD release was on November 29th, 2016. 

Alex's house - 2676 Ferry Park St. Detroit, Mi. 48208

The 1,736 square foot house was built in 1908. The tall building seen in the background is Lee Plaza. It's a vacant fifteen story building that was once a hotel and then apartments. On November 5th, 1981 it was added to the National Register of Historic Places.


Abandoned building - 6051 Hastings St. Detroit, Mi. 48211

Formerly Fisher Body Plant 21, the structure was built in 1919. It was a plant that made automobile body parts for General Motors. In 1982, production at the plant ceased. In 1990, it was purchased by the Carter Color Coat Company and used for industrial painting. In 1992, the company declared bankruptcy and the building has been abandoned ever since. The city took ownership of the structure in 2000. For the exterior shot, the director decided to flip the the building, for some reason. I knew this prior to visiting but forgot when I was actually at the location, therefore my picture was taken from the wrong corner of the building. Also, the interior scenes must've been shot at another location because they don't match what's seen on screen.

Blind man's house - 2488 Buena Vista St. Detroit, Mi. 48238

The 3,900 square foot house was built in 1924. The interior's were filmed at Stern Film Studios in Pomaz, Hungary. And just like it's suggested in the film, I'm pretty sure this is the only inhabitable house on the entire street.
