Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There is no flair, no suspense, not one frame composed with more in mind than getting a Beavis-type to chortle, "Cool.""
‑ Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post
""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."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"Darkly funny, creepy, and just downright spectacular..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"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."
‑ Mark Kermode, Observer [UK]
"A gleefully trashy, darkly funny exploitation horror-slash-thriller with inventive gore scenes, a knowing script and an intriguing central performance from Luke Evans."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"As bloodbaths go, this one has some interesting angles. Not THAT interesting, but ..."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"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."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"Home invasion/slasher stuff that has a nasty attitude and a speedy demeanor."
‑ Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
"Why would anyone want to watch such trash?"
‑ Allan Hunter, Daily Express
"Like black pudding, No One Lives is an acquired taste."
‑ Martyn Conterio, Little White Lies
"The expectations raised by the first 20 minutes ... make it all the more disappointing when incoherent slaughter replaces soul-chilling dread."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Most fatally, No One Lives neglects to provide a rooting interest. Great horror movies engender sympathy for the lambs being led to the slaughter."
‑ A.A. Dowd, AV Club
"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."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"Director Ryuhei Kitamura ladles on the entrails like a ghoulish dinnerlady, but his three-way narrative strategies lead nowhere ..."
‑ Mike McCahill, Guardian
"Clearly designed to be as grisly as humanly possible, this movie combines a brutal central character with a very flimsy premise."
‑ Rich Cline,
