Loopy, film-literate and full-bore, it's a sadistic '70s thriller in modern-day garb.

Village Voice

By Chuck Wilson
Director Ryûhei 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.

The Guardian

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

Los Angeles Times

By Robert Abele
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.

Movie Nation

By Roger Moore
No One Lives has to give away its biggest, best secret (the killers have messed with the wrong guy) far too early for its own good.

Slant Magazine

By Drew Hunt
Ryuhei Kitamura's latest genre bloodbath is par for the course, in spite of the occasionally flourish of interesting subtext.

The New York Times

By Jeannette Catsoulis
Mr. Kitamura, an action enthusiast who prefers to show rather than tell, seems unaware that the film’s dialogue is laughable, its characters unfathomable and the acting often less than optimal.

By A.A. Dowd
How bad is No One Lives, the new bottom-feeding schlock-fest from WWE Studios? Simply put: It’s bad enough to make some of the studio’s other offerings, like the Steve Austin deathmatch movie "The Condemned" and the Kane-starring slasher flick "See No Evil," look like genre gems.
