No One Gets Out Alive Release Date and Where To Watch It

A Netflix original, "No One Gets Out Alive" premieres on the streamer later this month on September 29, 2021. The film is based on the award-winning 2014 novel written by Adam Nevil. In the spirit of the Halloween season, the movie arrives alongside a huge collection of Netflix original movies and films that delve into the spooky and supernatural.

What Is No One Gets Out Alive?

Adam Nevill's novel of the same name told the chilling tale of a temp who moves into a cheap apartment only to discover a terrifying secret about her new home. It's your classic haunted house tale — starting with odd noises and the sneaking suspicion that something is amiss. By the end, she's wrapped up in the malevolence of a spirit that grows more hostile with each passing night. The film renames the character Ambar and twists her origin story to focus in on the devastating truth beneath the American Dream.

No One Gets Out Alive Synopsis

Here's the official synopsis for "No One Gets Out Alive":

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. 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?

No One Gets Out Alive Cast

Cristina Rodlo stars as Ambar, a young woman who arrives to America from Mexico.
