Don't Look is a Slasher Movie by Luciana Faulhaber.

Nicole (Lindsay Eshelman), Lorena (Luciana Faulhaber), Sebastian (Javier E. Gómez), Alex (Curtis K. Case), and Ted (Jeff Berg) are five youths who've decided to go to an old house out in the countryside for their Thanksgiving weekend. While there, they meet a man named Kelley (Jarrod Robbins) and his daughter Sherri Baby (Hailey Heisick), who are living on the property while it's rented to them.

Anyway, the youths settle in for a makeshift Thanksgiving dinner, and the usual kind of shenanigans kids like them get up to in horror movies like this one. And of course, there's someone else (Daniel Pappas) on the property with them, who intends to cut them all up.

The movie was released on April 6th, 2018.

Don't Look contains examples of:

  • Apocalyptic Log: Lorena finds a bunch of newspapers in a drawer about the murder of Nicole's original parents.
  • Bear Trap: In the climax of the movie, Lorena's foot gets caught in one. Nicole has to carry her the rest of the way to the bus.
  • Bilingual Bonus: When Kelley and Sherri are with the group, Sebastian and Lorena have a conversation about them, calling them "puerco" (pig).
  • Blood from the Mouth: Sebastian, when the killer stabs him in the stomach.
  • Cat Scare: At one point, when Sebastian is out in the field with a gun, he turns his gun towards something when he jumps... and a bunny hops across the field.
  • Chainsaw Good: The killer murders Alex by cutting him in half with a chainsaw.
  • Creepy Children Singing: At the start of the movie, we're treated to a sepia-toned Flashback that has the echoing voice of a little girl singing Silent Night. Said little girl was Nicole on the day her little brother killed their parents.

  • The End... Or Is It?: Nicole sets the barn she, Lorena, and the killer are all in to kill the latter. While she's dragging Lorena away on a tarp (because Lorena's leg is too injured to move thanks to the bear trap), she says it's finally over... and then a figure walks in front of the barn.
  • Facial Horror: The killer stabs Kelley in the face with a fork.
  • Flashback Effects: The flashbacks in the film are all presented in sepia tones, with a grainy appearance to mimic the look of old family film reels.
  • Good Morning, Crono: After the title plays, we see Nicole sleeping in the back seat of the car with two of her friends, one of whom (Lorena) wakes her up.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Alex, with a chainsaw.
  • Has a Type: When cornering Lorena in the basement, Kelley tells her he likes a girl "with a bit of fight in her".
  • Kinky Roleplaying: When Alex and Nicole go over to Kelley's and Sherri baby's abode, they look inside and see them engaging in some sort of BDSM role-playing, with Sherri Baby spanking Kelley, who's wearing bunny ears.
  • Malevolent Masked Men: The killer in the movie wears an old doll-face mask with coloured marker all over it. He owned it since he was a kid. He was wearing it when he killed his and Nicole's dad.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Sherri Baby, who is shown in some pretty skimpy clothes. Lorena's a close second, doing a scene in nothing but her underwear.
  • My Car Hates Me: When Nicole, Lorena, and Sebastian get back to the car, they try to start it up... and it doesn't even so much as stutter.
  • Off with His Head!: After drowning Sherri Baby, we see the killer carrying a severed head.
  • Parental Incest: Kelley and Sherri Baby reveal themselves as this by making out in front of the group.
  • Screaming Woman: Lorena, after escaping the killer, runs through the field screaming back to the house.
  • Sex Signals Death: Whenever people engage in sex in this movie, it's usually interrupted by the killer.
  • Smash to Black: In the first flashback, after the little girl's father tells her not to look, we hear a gunshot that leads to this.
  • Take That!: While driving to their destination, the gang decide to take part in a discussion of how they'd off Justin Bieber.
