NO ONE LIVES (Anchor Bay, 2012) D: Ryuhei Kitamura, w/ Luke Evans, Adelaide Clemens. Rating: NNNN; DVD package: NNN Rating: NNNN
No One Lives does a brilliant job of subverting horror movie clichés while delivering the expected gushing, gory thrills.
There's a slick serial killer with bizarre tastes (Luke Evans), a criminally degenerate family of yokels and their buddy (Lee Tergesen), and a plucky girl (Adelaide Clemens). Bad things happen over the course of a night.
The generally solid making-of doc goes into great detail about the movie's biggest effect and strangest idea. Otherwise, you can watch director Ryuhei Kitamura having a grand time while his actors groan through a tough shoot.
