DVD Review - No One Lives (2013)

No One Lives, 2012.

Directed by Ryûhei Kitamura.

Starring Luke Evans, Gary Grubbs, Adelaide Clemens, Lee Tergesen, Derek Magyar, America Olivo, and Beau Knapp.

Synopsis:

A gang of ruthless highway killers kidnap a wealthy couple traveling cross country only to shockingly discover that things are not what they seem.

Cult Japanese director Ryûhei Kitamura is known for making some of the most action packed, violent and blood soaked world cinema since the turn of the century, with the standout on his CV (and one of my favourite movies) being Versus, a crazy story of criminals vs the undead, fighting a centuries old recurring battle in a forest of resurrection, it’s utterly ridiculous but completely brilliant too . In 2008, Kitamura made his first English language movie with the U.S horror, Midnight Meat Train, an adaptation of a Clive Barker short. While it was nothing special on the horror scene (many people

No One Lives Blu-ray Review

Director: Ryuhei Kitamura,

Starring: Luke Evans, Laura Ramsey, Lee Tergesen, Derek Magyar, Adelaide Clemens, America Olivo, Beau Knapp, Lindsey Shaw, Brodus Clay, Gary Grubbs

Running Time: 86 Minutes

Certificate: 18

No One Lives is the kind of film where the less you know, the better. Even explaining the plot will lead to deliberations that may uncover some of the excellent plot twists on show. It’s also a shame that the Blu-ray menu also reveals some of the most important and shocking visuals the film has to offer. With that in mind, the following review will try its best not to reveal any significant plot twists, but No One Lives is certainly a film to enjoy blind.

It starts off as many clichéd slasher films have done in the past, with a woman running for her life through a forrest. Kitamura shoots the scene with all the frenetic quality and uncompromising speed needed for a disorientating introduction.

The Great Beauty, About Time, Riddick: this week's new films

The Great Beauty | About Time | Riddick | Ain't Them Bodies Saints | Museum Hours | Pieta | The Stuart Hall Project | The Great Hip Hop Hoax | No One Lives | More Than Honey | Jadoo | Any Day Now

The Great Beauty (15)

(Paolo Sorrentino, 2013, Ita/Fra) Toni Servillo, Carlo Verdone, Sabrina Ferilli, 141 mins

Sorrentino proves himself a worthy successor to Fellini here, tracking modern Roman decadence with staggering exuberance and an eye for the stylishly surreal. Filling the Marcello Mastroianni role is Servillo's world-weary writer and socialite, who stalks the city's elite demi-monde of hedonistic parties, pretentious art, cynical grotesques and faded glories – but finds reveries and regrets around every corner.

About Time (12A)

(Richard Curtis, 2013, UK) Domhnall Gleeson, Rachel McAdams. 123 mins

A sci-fi element reinvigorates Curtis's trademarked romcom formula, but there's still a feeling of deja vu to this middle-class love story, in which Gleeson uses his inherited time-travelling powers to woo McAdams – albeit at a cost.

Film4 FrightFest 2013 Review - No One Lives (2012)

No One Lives, 2012.

Directed by Ryûhei Kitamura.

Starring Luke Evans, Gary Grubbs, Adelaide Clemens, Lee Tergesen, Derek Magyar, America Olivo and Beau Knapp.

Synopsis:

A gang of ruthless highway killers kidnap a wealthy couple traveling cross country only to shockingly discover that things are not what they seem.

Despite its kid-friendly TV shows, WWE Films have been aiming a good chunk of their movies at a more mature demographic. Earlier this year they surprised audiences with the fairly decent Dead Man Down and American Mary directors The Soska Twins are heading into production for the sequel to 2006's See No Evil. And while that could be a blood-soaked slasher movie, it will have its work cut out to top No One Lives in terms of bloodshed.

The movie pits psycho vs. psychos as gang members kidnap a couple who are making their way through town. But when they discover a

FEARnet Movie Review: 'No One Lives'

FEARnet Movie Review: 'No One Lives'
It's safe to say we've seen the "home invasion" thriller thrown at us from every conceivable angle by this point. The premise is nothing new, of course, as those who remember the original Straw Dogs (1971) can remind you, but over the last several years we've seen a whole lot of foreign and/or independent films that involve A) a house, B) some killers, and C) a siege of some unpleasant variety.

Take your pick: Funny Games (either version), Them (aka Ils) and High Tension (aka Switchblade Romance) and Inside, The Purge and The Strangers, The Aggression Scale, the remake of Mother's Day, the long-awaited You're Next, and probably a dozen other movies we've both seen. So right off the bat it should be clear that the film we're here to discuss -- No One Lives -- is nothing close to fresh, original, or particularly novel. But the ravenous horror fans

Q&A with No One Lives Director Ryuhei Kitamura

No One Lives director Ryuhei Kitamura took part in our latest Q&A session, telling us about his love for Driver, working with Luke Evans and Robert Hall, and what’s next:

Thank you very much for taking the time to talk with Daily Dead. What was it about the script for No One Lives that made you want to take on this project?

Ryuhei Kitamura: I loved the script because it was not just about blood and guts. I was fascinated by the character of Driver; a non-stop killing machine doing it all for love. To me this is a twisted love story.

When looking for your lead actor, was Luke Evans your first pick? What made him stand out from the pack and why was he perfect for this role?

Ryuhei Kitamura: Luke was the first and only candidate. I needed someone who was not only

‘No One Lives’ Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Luke Evans, Adelaide Clemens, Lee Tergesen, Derek Magyar, Beau Knapp, America Olivo, Lindsey Shaw, Brodus Clay, Gary Grubbs | Written by David Cohen | Directed by Ryuhei Kitamura

Ryuhei Kitamura’s second American film (his first was the Vinnie Jones starrer The Midnight Meat Train), No One Lives harks back to his early work – the Super 8 short Down to Hell and his most famous flick Versus – putting strangers together in a pitched battle against a common enemy.

The film starts out very much along the typical backwoods/hillbilly slant, as a gang of robbers screw up their latest mansion heist and, to make up for their loses, kidnap a couple in a car instead. It looks as though we’re seemingly headed down the torture route, with our villains set to get the information they need from the couple by any means necessary. However Kitamura flips the script and what the robbers,

The Comedian, Byzantium, The Big Wedding: this week's new film releases

The Comedian | Byzantium | The Big Wedding | Populaire | The Purge | Blood | Everybody Has A Plan | No One Lives | Man To Man | Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani

The Comedian

(15) (Tom Shkolnik, 2012, UK) Edward Hogg, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett. 79 mins

There's an uncanny degree of naturalism to this downbeat sketch of a lost London soul, confused over his sexuality, his faltering stand-up career and his place in life. It was made with a Dogme-like set of rules encouraging spontaneous improvisation in real locales. The result is somewhere between Mike Leigh and mumblecore, a meandering slice of life that often hits the truth.

Byzantium

(15) (Neil Jordan, 2013, UK/Us/Ire) Gemma Arterton, Saoirse Ronan, Sam Riley. 118 mins

There might be little left to say about vampires, but genre veteran Jordan has a better right (and better actors) than most to say it. This tale of two 200-year-old women hiding out in a coastal town is more mature and less gory than most offerings.
