On August 9, 2016, “Don’t Breathe” director Fede Alvarez sent out a tweet that said “We learned lots from @BlindFilmCritic while writing “Don’t Breathe” check out his videos, they’re #MindBlowing.” So we reached out to him to request an on-camera interview and ended up at the press junket for the film 2 days later.
Each week, we post new episodes of The Tommy Edison Experience on YouTube. The series features Tommy Edison, blind since birth, who uses humor to answer the most popular questions about living without sight and takes on challenges which test his other senses.

After a long hiatus, Tommy has returned to the “Blind Film Critic” series to review the latest theatrical film releases coming out this summer. Watch the video below for the official announcement/trailer.
The Blind Film Critic series features Tommy Edison, who’s been blind since birth, reviewing movies from his point of view. He focuses on what matters to him most and what is arguably the core of most good films – the story, performances, and soundtrack. While cinematography and computer-generated imagery may add to a film’s visual qualities, it is the script that is considered the heart of the movie.
