“No One Will Save You” Review Round-Up: A Lean, Mean, Nerve-Fraying Alien Home Invasion Thriller

There’s a lean, mean, and deliciously well-made new thriller that’s officially arrived on Hulu, writer/director Brian Duffield’s alien invasion film No One Will Save You. 

No One Will Save You is centered on Brynn (Kaitlyn Dever), a talented young woman who’s been alienated from her community and living in her childhood home, the only place she finds any real peace or comfort. That changes one night when she wakes up to some unsettling noises and finds out that it’s even worse than your typical, terrifying home invasion. Oh, it’s a home invasion, alright, but the invaders are not of this world.

One of the intriguing touches to Duffield’s vision is he takes the undeniably bright and likable Dever and gives her a script in which she turns in a nearly wordless performance. And Dever excels in the role.

“Just when you think you have a good handle on where things might be going next, Duffield spins around and spears those expectations in the head with the spire of a miniature church,” writes indieWire‘s David Ehrlich.

“No One Will Save You is so effective and innovative in its approach to a classic home-invasion thriller that it’s a must-see movie,” says Digital Spy‘s Ian Sandwell.

Let’s take a look at what some of the critics are saying. No One Will Save You is streaming on Hulu now:
