No One Gets Out Alive

An immigrant in search of the American dream is forced to take a room in a boarding house, one that leads her towards a nightmare she can't escape.

Ambar (Cristina Rodlo) is embarking on her American Dream after years spent dutifully tending to her terminally ill mother in Mexico. She arrives in Cleveland illegally, with very little money and unsuitable clothing for what’s expected to be the coldest winter on record. After finding cash-in-hand work at a local garment factory, she rents the cheapest room available from Red (Marc Menchaca) in a near derelict boarding house.

Kept awake by the other tenants’ sobbing, disturbing nightmares and strange unearthly noises echoing from the basement, Ambar begins to wonder exactly who - or what - lives inside the house with them. Soon it becomes clear that Ambar has walked into a trap, one where she will soon be introduced to the evil that has been lurking in the basement.

The movie grafts standard horror-movie tropes onto a portrait of the struggles of undocumented immigrants in America.

For his feature debut, Menghini surprises with a unique structure and the way he lulls the viewer with familiar haunted house conventions, only to shatter them all with a sharp detour into something else entirely...

Even if everything doesn’t quite work, No One Gets Out Alive has a good premise and solid performances...

Menghini... is an assured hand at conjuring and sustaining a creepy atmosphere, maximising empty space and sound, so even if we’re in tried-and-tested territory, we’re at least being confidently led through it.
