No One Gets Out Alive

Rating: 2 out of 5.

A familiar paranormal horror thriller that leaves a lot of unanswered questions without ever fully explaining the plot. It’s not that it doesn’t make sense, it’s just clearly missing some information that would’ve tied the story together better. There are definitely some frightening moments, but there were plenty of overused horror tropes that seemed to make the film less scary, because of repetition. Other than making every scene as dimly lit as possible, there’s not much of a visual style. Even the set design isn’t all that visible, which seems like a gigantic waste. But at least the monster was terrifying, even though it was barely on screen.

Cristina Rodlo wasn’t bad at all, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t expecting more out of the central performance in this film. The support was pretty decent, especially from Marc Menchaca, who seems to be one of the better actors to play a bad guy that doesn’t want to be bad. It’s basically the only type of role I’ve even seen from him.

There was some potential here for sure, but the execution was lacking to say the least, and there’s nowhere near enough context within the story to make the audience invested in the outcome.
