Back in 2008, Ryuhei Kitamura debuted a small horror film titled Midnight Meat Train, which racked up a paltry $83k at the domestic box office, but has since gained status as a cult favorite. Leading that project was none other than Bradley Cooper, an actor who was just getting his footing in Hollywood, but would go on to be one of the most sought-after talents in the studio system (with a nod to his horror film even popping up in Silver Linings Playbook).

No One Lives arrives on May 10th.

Genre film fans are likely familiar with writer Alex Garland‘s output over the last decade and a half. He made his name with a splash when his novel was adapted into the backpacking adventure thriller The Beach in 2000 and struck again with screenplay for 28 Days Later which some credit as the fire that helped reignite […]
