Hulu’s No One Will Save You Review: Kaitlyn Dever Shines In This Brilliant Alien Home Invasion Thriller


Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, 2020 was a messy year for film distribution, as studios struggled to figure out how to properly put out new releases to a hungry audience. Mistakes were made, and great titles slipped through the cracks of public awareness. Spontaneous, the directorial debut of The Babysitter screenwriter Brian Duffield, was one of them. Adapted from the book of the same name by author Aaron Starmer, it’s a comical and devastating blend of young adult drama and explosive horror, with teenagers spontaneously combusting serving as a bold metaphor for America’s school shooting epidemic. It’s a dark comedy made with a strong and confident voice, and it instantly confirms Duffield as an exciting talent.

Directed By: Brian Duffield

Arriving three years later, No One Will Save You is exceptional further affirmation of that confirmation. It’s high concept sci-fi horror, with old school grey aliens terrorizing a protagonist alone in her house and isolated from her community, and it’s a phenomenal execution of sustained dread with awesome surprises. Simultaneously, it’s a minimalist character study powered by a stunning performance from Kaitlyn Dever, and a fascinating exploration of grief. It’s a wonder, and the latest big win for original genre movies.
