"The whole movie is kind of a chess game – the blind man makes a move, then the thieves make a move, then he responds, and the way they move is your story. So early on I got together with all the department heads around a table in my house and we laid out the chessboard of the movie. We created a big board with a hallway, living room, etc. and used some of my action figures to plot out where in the house everyone was in every scene. We’d act out the action and when the blind man would chase the kids…well, if there’s a door they can run through to escape, then we would erase that door. Good, now they have no escape. By the time we played out the whole movie on that blueprint, we knew where all the doors should be, where all the windows should be, where characters should be in relation to each other at any given moment. I wanted the people to behave honestly – when they run somewhere there’s a reason for them to make that decision, which hopefully makes it scarier because the audience will identify with what they’re doing." - on "Don't Breathe," from Filmmaker Magazine, Jul. 20, 2016
