Everything about "#HoldYourBreath" is aggressively mediocre, shoddy and undistinguished...

There's no way this is worthy of anything other than late night basic cable fodder.

Audience Reviews for Hold Your Breath

You can pretty much see everything before it happens. Stoner can't hold his breath, so the fun begins. You have all the right ingredients for a B thriller. Annoyingly bossy blonde, sex-crazed couple, pott-head, graveyard, abandoned prison, creepy old man with a shotgun. From the beginning where they all give up their cell phones, to the foreseeable facepalm of an ending. This is a decent way to pass the time, but don't expect to be impressed.

The Asylum production company must be profitable, but I don't see how. Hold Your Breath is a typical offering - horrible dialogue, over the top acting (although the cast is, as usual, young and attractive), and ridiculously low production values (watch for the SUV to change from a Chevy to a Toyota repeatedly with no rhyme nor reason).

Katrina Bowden, the knockout receptionist of 30 Rock fame, has among the best pair of legs you will ever set eyes on. That's the only good I can muster for this horror film as weak as Montgomery Burns. No scares, not even tingles. Even the 'boo' moments are bore moments. Some of the worst CGI you will find. And a cast of annoying, or dumb, or annoying AND dumb characters. No atmosphere nor intelligence went into set design either: a prison abandoned for 50 years still has shiny metal surfaces, no dust, and even working electricity. There are a number of unintentional laughs though. So, there's that. And Bowden's short-shorts. Good luck with the rest.
