No One Lives Reviews

February 28, 2019
Ryûhei Kitamura's second US venture is a riot; revelling in its throwaway nonsense, it's fun from the get-go and knows it.
August 24, 2015
Home invasion/slasher stuff that has a nasty attitude and a speedy demeanor.
December 6, 2013
Darkly funny, creepy, and just downright spectacular...
September 13, 2013
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.
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.
September 5, 2013
Like black pudding, No One Lives is an acquired taste.
September 5, 2013
Clearly designed to be as grisly as humanly possible, this movie combines a brutal central character with a very flimsy premise.
September 5, 2013
If we must have schlock let it be fun, inventive and full-on exploitative like Ryhei Kitamura's bonkers thriller.
September 5, 2013
Rolls out at lightning speed, peppered with hard-boiled repartee, while Driver's preternatural carnage is ludicrously orchestrated and slapped on.
September 4, 2013
[A] gut-wrenchingly gory horror yarn from Asian director Ryhei Kitamura.
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.
May 10, 2013
(T)he filmmaker fashions an experience where nothing is what it seems, where the first 25 minutes or so see more twists and turns than in a dozen derivative fright flicks...
May 8, 2013
Director Ryhei 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 ...
September 20, 2012
No One Lives is never quite able to recapture the gloriousness of its opening half hour...
