The new Netflix releases No One Gets Out Alive fuses surreal horror with social commentary, but how does the movie differ from the original novel?
How does Netflix’s latest horror hit No One Gets Out Alive differ from the chilling 2014 novel it is adapted from? No One Gets Out Alive is Netflix’s latest foray into psychological horror. The creepy movie is based on The Ritual author Adam Nevill’s novel of the same name, which was a critical success upon its 2014 release.
However, No One Gets Out Alive changes a lot of major details from its source material, although the movie still stays true to the novel’s tone. The Netflix adaptation tells the tale of Ambar, an immigrant who arrives in America and is forced to settle in a run-down boarding house in Cleveland. She soon regrets her choice of emergency accommodation when seemingly supernatural spooks start haunting the house, but like the recent Giallo-inspired horror Malignant, No One Gets Out Alive gradually moves from being a standard ghost story into something far stranger.
