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.
Most fatally, No One Lives neglects to provide a rooting interest. Great horror movies engender sympathy for the lambs being led to the slaughter.
Fascinates for all the wrong reasons.
Home invasion/slasher stuff that has a nasty attitude and a speedy demeanor.
Darkly funny, creepy, and just downright spectacular...
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.
Why would anyone want to watch such trash?
Brutality doesn't always make up for lack of everything else. Bloody as hell but thats pretty much it!
Ryuhei Kitamura's No One Lives lives up to its title, but that doesn't make it a great movie.
Dishing out a story that barely touches 80 minutes, No One Lives has one or two tricks up its sleeve. With that said, there isn't much else out of the ordinary thanks to the antagonists, antagonists, antagonists, and violence.
The gore is extreme and is easily one of the more memorable components of this picture. There is no shortage of it either, especially with the number of characters looking to take a slaughter.
Luke Evans has quite the character, thus leading to another of the film's highlights. Adelaide Clemens has a moment or two. The rest of the cast turn in some predictable supporting characters.
While No One Lives isn't completely full of flaws, it's still a passable film.
A bloody as hell and high-octane grand-house horror movie that will keep you on the edge of your seat with its blood-bursting thrills, terrifying thrills, twisted suspense and Luke Evans brilliant and sadistic performance, which truly makes this film worth watching. It does not hold back on the gore or chaos and just makes for pure unashamed horror film fun. Anyone who enjoys the old-school slasher flicks on the 70's and 80's will get a real kick out of this film. A bone-chilling and wickedly cool thrill-ride
