Netflix Turns Up The Freight With “No One Gets Out Alive.”

Are you ready to scream? Sleep with the lights on, for a week? Well… No One Gets Out Alive promises to leave you shivering where you are.

No One Gets Out Alive introduces us to Ambar (Cristina Rodlo) is an immigrant in search of the American dream, but when she’s forced to take a room in a boarding house, she finds herself in a nightmare she can’t escape. The film follows Ambar as she is embarking on her American Dream. After spending years dutifully tending to her terminally ill mother in Mexico, she travels to 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. Ambar must fight to escape her living nightmare, but in a house where no one listens to the screams, will she ever get out alive?

The film drops September 29th on Netflix.
