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?

Director Ryuhei Kitamura ladles on the entrails like a ghoulish dinnerlady, but his three-way narrative strategies lead nowhere ...

Matthew Turner
September 5, 2013
A gleefully trashy, darkly funny exploitation horror-slash-thriller with inventive gore scenes, a knowing script and an intriguing central performance from Luke Evans.

Like black pudding, No One Lives is an acquired taste.

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 Ryűhei Kitamura's bonkers thriller.

Electric Sheep
September 5, 2013
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 Ryűhei Kitamura.

What Culture

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
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

The script only succeeds at providing unintentional humor, with a structure devoid of meaningful surprises and an emphasis on macho posturing.
Alan Jones
Radio Times
June 3, 2013
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 ...

May 27, 2013
Loopy, film-literate and full-bore, it's a sadistic '70s thriller in modern-day garb.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

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.

Blood may be thicker than water, but it flows just as freely in this artistically bankrupt thriller.
