No One Will Save You is a 2023 American sci-fi horror film about a lonely young woman dealing with an invasion by extraterrestrial beings.

Written and directed by Brian Duffield (writer of Love and Monster; The Babysitter).

The 20th Century Studios-Star Thrower Entertainment co-production stars Kaitlyn Dever, Zack Duhame, Geraldine Singer, Bridget Malbrough, Dari Lynn Griffin, Devyn Sandidge, Elizabeth Kaluev, Evangeline Rose, Ginger Cressman, John Cortes, Lauren L. Murray, Nathalie J. Alarcon and Rose Bianca Grue.

Brynn Adams (Kaitlyn Dever) is a creative and talented young woman who has been alienated from her community. Lonely yet ever hopeful, Brynn finds solace within the walls of the home where she grew up until she’s awakened one night by strange noises from decidedly unearthly intruders.


What follows is an action-packed face-off between Brynn and a host of extraterrestrial beings who threaten her future while forcing her to deal with her past…

“Cinematographer Aaron Morton (Spontaneous, 2013’s Evil Dead) captures the intense horror action with stunning clarity, but the intricate sound and Dever’s committed portrayal steal the show. Turn the lights down low and the volume on max: No One Will Save You brings high-octane thrills and chills with purpose, making for a spooky season must-watch.” ★★★★ Bloody Disgusting

“The circumstances of Brynn’s alienation are hinted at throughout, but the destination is obvious so it doesn’t pack as much of a punch that the revelation could have. Duffield does finds an affecting way for Brynn to deal with her trauma though and Dever pitches the moment perfectly, not overplaying it […] 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.” ★★★★ Digital Spy

“Telling the story of an ostracized homebody named Brynn who has to survive a horrific alien invasion in her hometown, the film remains mostly wordless, just like the protagonist herself. But with exciting sequences, good use of sound otherwise, and the mixing of other creature-horror genres with the age-old alien story, No One Will Save You is a rather fun watch.” DMT

“It’s a great analogy in the style of the currently much-discussed elevated horror! It’s M. Night Shyamalan’s Signs – but with action! Or you can just look at it as a gentle The Twilight Zone modernization. There would actually be too great a risk that a director would get caught in the middle. But Duffield triumphantly settles in on all of them at once.” ★★★★½ Filmstarts [translated from German]

“Kaitlyn Dever admirably attempts to hold the whole thing together and delivers an adequate performance in the process, but in an utterly thankless role. Neither Brynn, nor her laboured storyline are developed enough to allow her the chance to connect emotionally with audiences. None of Brynn’s personality (if she even has one?) comes through, and the action sequences aren’t creative or dramatic enough…” ★★ HC Movie Reviews

“Dever, barely speaking any dialogue, handles the extreme emotional and physical demands of her role in powerhouse fashion, opening her eyes so widely with fright that you hope there was an ophthalmologist on call during the shooting. It’s a virtuoso turn that, combined with Duffield’s cinematic craftsmanship, prevents No One Will Save You from lapsing into the silliness to which it could easily have succumbed.” The Hollywood Reporter

No One Will Save You might peak in its first act but it is still a rock-solid alien invasion thriller which breezes by and is engaging throughout. While it may hit a few bumps along the way, it is ultimately worth the watch, especially for fans of alien invasion thrillers. Though it has a lot of familiar beats, it is its own thing and proves that Brian Duffield can tackle just about any genre to great effect.” ★★★★ Keith Loves Movies

“The creature design is fairly generic, and more effective before we start to see them up close. Duffield’s extended metaphor has been done before and with more subtlety, though it’s rescued somewhat by a final twist from that Twilight-y Zone place. Most of all, Hulu’s No One Will Save You is another example of a film that seems structured exclusively for a streaming algorithm.” ★★½ Maddwolf

“The visual effects, while serviceable, aren’t convincing enough to, well, convince us that any of these aliens are actually physical entities. In other words, the threat of No One Will Save You might simply be too big for the movie’s minimalistic aims. It’s a neat experiment, but with its heightened extraterrestrial conceit, Duffield works against the suspenseful core of this story a bit too much.” 2.5 out of 4, Mark Reviews Movies

” …its many twists and turns keep us on the edge of our seats. Even if in the long run, we feel a certain weariness so everything becomes redundant. Nevertheless, No One Will Save You is a good little entertainment that can be candidly devoured during its 90 minutes.” 3.8 out of 5, Mr Horreur [translated from French]

“Dever is excellent in capturing Brynn’s isolation, fear, but also her resolve and the guilt she’s carrying. The mystery surrounding Brynn unfolds neatly without becoming overbearing […] some of the creature effects are weak, and the bland suburban setting doesn’t help.” ★★★½ Punch Drunk Critics

No One Will Save You is tired and confusing. The creative intentions are notable and Dever more than succeeds at pulling her weight, but both are well underserved by the film’s execution. By the time any long-missed background is given, it’s too late and too lazy to have made the waiting warranted.” ★½

” …an extra-terrestrial creature feature cut from the same cloth as M. Night Shyamalan’s Signs, where the jump scares are secondary to an earnest (but far less effective) portrait of coping with guilt and grief. Building on the novelty value of [his] 2020 debut Spontaneous (in which a bunch of teenagers inexplicably start to pop like pimples), director Brian Duffield sets multiple creative challenges for himself and mostly succeeds…” Variety

” …the creature designs are cool, a mix of classic aliens and Slenderman, but the final product looks unrealistic, lacking the kind of detail that makes it fit in with an otherwise real-world setting […] That said, No One Will Save You is a delightful surprise, and it comes just in time for spooky season. It’s a tight, focused thriller with a unique concept that it continues to build on.” The Verge
