There is no flair, no suspense, not one frame composed with more in mind than getting a Beavis-type to chortle, "Cool."
As bloodbaths go, this one has some interesting angles. Not THAT interesting, but ...
The expectations raised by the first 20 minutes ... make it all the more disappointing when incoherent slaughter replaces soul-chilling dread.
"No One Lives" is a cheap horror prank that's ultimately not clever or accomplished enough to sustain its eccentricities, and they are very bloody eccentricities indeed.
There's so much darkness here, it's hard to see anything - literally. Forget the horror and mayhem. Someone needed to turn on the lights.
Director Ryûhei Kitamura (The Midnight Meat Train) is too talented for material this retro-junky, but he and screenwriter David Cohen keep the action coming hard and fast ...
Home invasion/slasher stuff that has a nasty attitude and a speedy demeanor.
Even though it's played dead straight, this gonzo horror film is so extreme that it's actually quite funny. Whether this is intentional or not is anyone's guess.
Splashes of gore and evisceration combine with a nicely nasty psycho-killer turn from Luke Evans to enliven this grindy slasher from Midnight Meat Train director Ryuhei Kitamura.
Director Ryuhei Kitamura ladles on the entrails like a ghoulish dinnerlady, but his three-way narrative strategies lead nowhere ...
A gleefully trashy, darkly funny exploitation horror-slash-thriller with inventive gore scenes, a knowing script and an intriguing central performance from Luke Evans.
Clearly designed to be as grisly as humanly possible, this movie combines a brutal central character with a very flimsy premise.
If we must have schlock let it be fun, inventive and full-on exploitative like Ryûhei Kitamura's bonkers thriller.
Rolls out at lightning speed, peppered with hard-boiled repartee, while Driver's preternatural carnage is ludicrously orchestrated and slapped on.
[A] gut-wrenchingly gory horror yarn from Asian director Ryûhei Kitamura.
While it builds palpable tension early on, No One Lives de-evolves into a generic torture porn gorefest in its second half, becoming increasingly absurd as it does so
The script only succeeds at providing unintentional humor, with a structure devoid of meaningful surprises and an emphasis on macho posturing.
Genuinely striking and unnerving, the film manages to ramp up the fright factor to such overly intense levels that uneasy laughter provides the only release.
Imagine if Reservoir Dogs' Mr Blonde hooked up with Hannibal Lecter and they went for dinner with the nutter from Wolf Creek.
A survival story, pure and simple, the characterisation is non-existent and the blood flows in rivers. It'll appeal to the gorehounds with a sense of humour ...
Loopy, film-literate and full-bore, it's a sadistic '70s thriller in modern-day garb.
Almost coming off like an academic blueprint of what a serial killer movie should look like, rather than anything with a distinct voice or authorial hand, No One Lives shocks by virtue of being completely uninteresting.
