No One Gets Out Alive (2021)

Undocumented Ambar who is extremely poor works multiple temp jobs to live the American dream. She finds a great boarding house owned by landlord Red too good to be true and lives with the other girls. We learn she use to take care of her ailing mother and could never live a normal life as her mother continuously got sick until she came to America to support her. Odd things start happening to her at the new boarding house and out of it. She gets her cousin to help her get a better job but lies about being documented. She trusts her friend giving her savings to get her a loan to live the American dream by using loan money to make a fake US id for the new job interview. But is betrayed and must ask Red for the deposit back to get money for the fake US id. Red lies to her to get her to the house and traps her. Red kills her cousin who went looking for her. Red then tells her his brother Becker is mentally ill and brought home a box. Using rituals the brother killed undocumented women to the box and slowly healed his mental illness. His mother found out and was forced to help until Becker killed her. Similarly their father and now Red helps him. We then find a monster come forth the box and try to eat Amber. She has a dream and recollection showing that she killed her mother to leave her perceived trapped life to chase the American dream. The monster takes that as the sacrifice and Amber is able to escape. She hunts and kills Becker and takes Red as the sacrifice to the monster as comeuppance. As she is leaving the house she realizes she has nothing left but is suddenly healed from sacrificing Red to the monster in the box. The box picture is shown and she realizes she can live here and start the sacrifices to get her American dream.

[reporter] We’ve got heavy rain being reported around the region.

But we’ve got wind gusts of 30 or 40 miles an hour.

Visibility is poor, so you motorists be careful out there.

[man in Portuguese over phone] How’s it going?

[woman] Yeah, you know.

[thunder rumbles]

Is Dad there?

[man sighs] He’s not going to talk to you.

Do you think it would make a difference if I…

[woman] I’ve been having bad dreams.

I just want to leave.

I was wrong, okay? I never…

[TV continues indistinctly]

I just want things to go back to how they were.

Fuck…

[woman] Ambar, are you coming?

We don’t want to be late.

I’ll be right there.

[doorbell rings]

[man] Don’t mind the mess. We just took over the place.

We’re still fixing it up.

Your, uh, room’s just over here. You have a good view from this floor.

Not that Cleveland’s much to look at.

How you finding it?

Uh, yeah, it’s nice.

[keys jingling]

[scoffs] Not been here long, then.

[door opens, shuts]

How many others live here?

Uh, you’re the second.

Freja’s the first. Her English ain’t so good.

Where’s she from?

Somewhere they don’t speak English.

[door creaking]

Uh, ladies only.

No guests after 9:00.

No smoking, no pets.

Okay.

Oh…

[train horn blaring in the distance]

Radiator’s off. Once it’s on, one side is warm…

[Ambar] Oh, sorry.

[man] Shoot. I got it, I got it.

[Ambar] Are you sure? I can just…

[man] I’ll prop that up. Okay. [grunts]

[sniffles] Don’t worry. I’ll replace that.

[pants]

So, where are you from?

Uh…

South of here.

How far south?

Not very far.

[scoffs]

You got a job?

Yes.

They pay cash?

Yeah.

One month’s rent upfront.

[chuckling] A month?

You want the room or not?

[train horn blaring in the distance]

Key is in the drawer.

Anything else, I’m upstairs, top floor.

Just holler.

[woman in Spanish over phone] Hi, sweetheart. It’s Mama.

Sorry for calling so late. [inhales]

You know I can’t sleep in these beds.

Thank you for today. I know you have plans, but I need you to come in tomorrow.

[distant crying]

Please come.

Your visits are the only thing…

Oh, sorry!

[Freja gasps] Sorry.

Uh, Freja?

Sorry, I’m… I’m Ambar.

Red said it’s just the two of us.

Red is full of shit.

[door creaks open, shut]

[eerie music playing]

[bell rings]

This needs to be double stitched.

Okay. I’m sorry, sir.

This hem’s no good either.

Yeah, I’m sorry.

It won’t happen again.

I need you to hurry up.

You should be doing twice as many.

Yes.

Pick up the pace.

Yes, sir, I’m sorry. Thank you.

[male reporter] He adds the raids go after employees, but not the business owners also committing crimes by hiring…

[woman speaks quietly] Come on, we agreed!

[sighs] But why? Can I know why?

Yes! Fine.

Bye.

Well, how much is the ID?

The price went up to 3,000.

Three?

Come on, you said it was one!

[woman] I know, but…

This guy’s an asshole. I’m sorry.

Why?

Birthplace. If it’s Ohio, it’s still a thousand.

No, it has to be Texas.

[woman] Why can’t you come from Ohio?

I can’t.

Then it’s gonna have to cost you more.

I’m sorry.

Don’t worry about it. You’ll think of something.

Texans are resourceful people.

[both chuckle]

[soft rock ballad playing on radio]

[man] Be nice when we go out there.

[woman] I’m trying to be nice, but I don’t know who she is.

You hardly knew her mother!

[man] It’s gonna be a nice evening as long as you are able to, you know, be nice.

[woman] I’ll do my best.

[footsteps approaching]

[woman] Carlos? Dinner.

[in Spanish] Can I help?

No, it’s okay.

I hope you like meatloaf.

Yes. [chuckles]

It smells delicious.

Thank you for inviting me.

[man] Of course. It’s our pleasure to meet you.

Thank you.

You must be Carlos.

[in English] What?

Oh, we don’t…

Carlos isn’t used to speaking Spanish.

Oh.

I’m… I’m sorry.

Carlos, Ambar’s mama was my cousin.

That makes Ambar your second cousin.

Are you all set for Friday?

Yes.

Yes, thank you very much.

No promises, but I did put in a good word for you.

Don’t forget to bring your ID. They were pretty big on that.

So, how do you like the city, Ambar?

I mean, it’s nice.

Just a little cold. [chuckles]

[man] It’s freezing.

I have to wear two pairs of socks here.

[chuckles]

[man] You know, you should get a proper coat.

Sylvia, don’t we have something we can give her?

Oh, no, no. That’s okay. I can buy one.

No, it’s fine. I… I have an old coat in my closet.

Well, thank you.

So, Beto says you didn’t go to college.

Well, I was going to, but then Mami got sick.

Um… I’m gonna go to night school to study business management.

It’s a great thing you did, staying by her side through her illness.

Well, she needed me.

Putting your life on hold all those years, not a lot of people would’ve done that.

Are you listening, Carlos?

[all chuckle]

[Red] Lose something?

[gasps]

[Ambar] Hey.

No. Uh, there was a sound.

[Red] Basement’s private.

Sorry. Um, I… I actually need to talk to you about something.

Look, it’s late. I need to finish up, so let’s talk tomorrow.

[door slams shut]

Study’s private too.

[Ambar] Oh, um…

Well, I need to talk to you about my deposit.

Why?

Well, I’m very sorry, but I need my deposit back.

Something has come up. You can have the money for last night and tonight.

You just moved in.

I know, Red. Please, I… I need that money.

I already spent it.

What?

[Red] Refurbishments, tools, materials.

It’s done. Sorry.

[Freja crying]

[crying continues]

[Ambar inhales]

[knocks on door]

[Ambar] Hey, are you okay?

[hinges creak]

Freja?

[ominous music playing]

[water boiling]

[reporter] Coming up next, we find out what really happened to the four hikers that went missing in the Swedish wilderness.

[kettle whistling]

[Mama in Spanish] You’ve always had such beautiful hair.

[Ambar] You’d brush it a hundred times before letting me leave the house.

And aren’t you glad I did?

[chuckles]

Yes.

[Mama] Are you sure you’re happy to stay?

Of course.

Hmm.

You’re too kind, Ambar.

What’s that in the corner?

[ominous music playing]

[door screeching]

[gasps]

[sighs]

[man] You want what?

Can I get paid for next week?

You know how many girls would kill for this job?

And you ask me for an advance?

But what if I do double shifts?

Every day you’re getting slower!

You’re lucky you still have a job.

[bell rings]

I’m sorry. I’ll move faster.

[man] You just got here, and you keep saying that!

I know, but I promise. I’m sorry.

Why don’t I put you on packing?

I’m not supposed to, but just for today.

And you come back tomorrow and prove to me you’re good for this job.

Okay.

Okay?

How about a thank you?

[loud indistinct chatter]

[fluttering]

[female voice] Ambar.

[gasps]

[bell rings]

[rock music playing over speakers]

[woman] Why do you need the ID so soon?

What’s so important about Friday?

I have a job interview.

So take the damned ID which says you were born in Ohio.

You can just say Texas was a mistake on your application or something.

I can’t.

Why not?

Well, it’s complicated.

So explain!

[Ambar] My uncle.

I called him up and asked… asked for a job, and… he said he couldn’t help me because I wasn’t a US citizen, and… I lied and said that I was born…

In Texas!

Mami used to live in Texas, and… now I’m stuck.

I didn’t want to come here like this. But Mami got sick, and then she’d get better, and I could make plans.

[inhales]

But then things would get bad again, and I’d have to stay.

I was relieved when it was all over.

I could finally leave for a new start.

You know, people always told me I had an eye for fashion.

A gift for seeing who people would like to be.

We came here, and I thought I would open up a shop or maybe start a website.

Five years later, and I’m still working the same shitty job. [laughs]

We are too kind.

Why else am I still living with several members of my family?

I should make them work for me.

I love them, but life would be so much easier without them.

[laughs]

Listen, this is clearly the drink talking, but why don’t I lend you the rest?

What?

You’re going to have a real job soon.

You can pay me back.

And then maybe lend me some money to do my own thing.

Oh my God. Kinsi, are you… are you serious?

Yes! I’m serious.

When can you get this done?

[Kinsi] As soon as you get me the money.

[unzipping]

What are you doing?

Get this to your guy and… and get me my papers.

You are sure?

Yes!

[in Romanian] What are you doing?

[in English] Sorry.

[in Romanian] Who’s this?

[woman] I don’t know. She scared me.

[In English] Hi. I’m… I’m Ambar.

Maria.

Petra.

[Ambar] Are you guys staying here?

For now. Drink?

Um… No, no, thank you. I’ve had plenty tonight.

If I have another one, I don’t think I’ll make it into work tomorrow. [chuckles]

[Petra] Huh.

[Ambar] What do you do for work?

[chuckles softly]

[slurping]

[Petra chuckles]

[chuckles]

Yeah, it’s… it’s tough out there.

Yeah. It’s so much better in here.

Right. Right. At least the rent is cheap. [chuckles]

It’s cheap because it’s shit.

Sure. [chuckles]

[Petra] Cigarette?

Uh… Yeah, yeah.

Thank you.

[Red] Evening, ladies.

You ready to go up?

[Petra] Mm-hmm.

[in Romanian] Let’s go.

I thought you said this place was women only.

There was this other guy downstairs.

Oh, that’s just Becker. He’s my brother. It’s just me and him, don’t worry.

Come on, come on.

[line ringing]

[man 3] Come on, come on.

[Kinsi on voicemail] Hey, it’s Kinsi. It sucks that you missed me, but leave a message and I’ll call you back soon. Bye!

[Ambar] Have you seen Kinsi?

She quit this morning.

All I get is a text. Didn’t even bother to call.

Do you have her address?

I can’t give you that.

Come on. I need it.

Why?

I… I just really need it.

It’s against company policy.

Company policy? What company policy? It’s just you!

You ain’t worth the hassle.

You’re fired.

No, no. Hey, wait, wait…

Hey, Kinsi, it’s Ambar.

Call me back.

[tense music playing]

[Kinsi on voicemail] Hey, it’s Kinsi.

It sucks that you missed me, but leave a message and I’ll call…

[Ambar shuddering] Freja?

[crying continues]

[Ambar gasps]

Oh, shit!

I’m so sorry.

[Red] What the fuck!

What’s wrong?

Have you seen Freja?

Uh, she… she moved out.

What? When?

A couple days back.

People come and go from here all the time.

I’m sorry. I need to…

[Red] I wanted to talk about your deposit.

With the new girls here, it’s a little easier, so…

I can get it back to you.

Okay, now?

No, I don’t have cash on me right now. [chuckling]

Um… Tomorrow.

Beto?

[Beto] It’s the middle of the night. Are you all right?

Beto, can you pick me up? I’m at 1521 Recolte Avenue. Please.

[Beto sighs]

Please, Beto. I can’t stay here. Please…

We’re out of town.

We’re looking at a college for Carlos, remember?

Listen, if you’re in trouble, call the cops.

No, I can’t call the police.

[Beto] Why not?

Because… Because I wasn’t born in Texas.

[Beto] What do you mean?

[inhales deeply]

I came here after Mama died.

[Beto] Ambar…

I’m so sorry. I’ll make it up to you, but I really need your help.

Can you wire me some money?

Please, I promise I’ll pay you back.

[Beto] I’m sorry.

It’s just… we’d never even met before.

Look, I’ll come see you as soon as I can.

Just try and stay out of trouble until then.

Red?

Red?

[door unlocking]

Red, I need my…

[sighs] Where’s Red?

He said he’d give me my deposit back.

I’ll send him down when he gets back.

No…

I’ll pay the rest tomorrow…

Did you bring my deposit?

Hello to you too.

Sorry, hi.

[Red] No, I was out.

It’s back at the house.

You sounded like you were upset, so I came straight here.

Okay. Can you bring it?

You want me to drive all the way back across town, pick up your money, and bring it here?

I can’t go back to the house.

Why?

I don’t want to take you back there either.

Becker and I didn’t see eye-to-eye on your refund.

I’m sorry.

It’s fine.

[inhales deeply] Becker’s a bit off, but he took care of me growing up.

Our dad, I had a hard time with him.

Becker stuck up for me.

But he’s sick now.

And the way I see it, he looked after me…

Now it’s my turn.

You know what I mean?

Come on. Let’s get your money.

[ominous music playing]

[music intensifies]

[door opens]

[indistinct chatter]

The money’s in your room.

[pop music playing over speakers]

What did I tell you girls about smoking in the lounge?

[Maria] We weren’t.

Ambar, come have a drink.

No, I’m not staying. Thank you.

[in Romanian] Come help me!

[in English] Red, where’s the wine going?

[Red] Wherever. I’ll be there in a minute.

[indistinct chatter]

[chatter and laughter continue]

[footsteps approaching]

[switch clicks]

[drawers clattering]

[Red] You sure you don’t want a drink?

Where’s my money?

You sure?

Where’s my money, Red?

Suit yourself.

I know this house is kind of weird.

My dad used to dig up and collect all this strange stuff.

He was a real nutjob. Killed our mom.

I want to leave now.

Come here, come on.

It’ll warm you up.

Get out of my way.

[Red] I wish you hadn’t called me.

I was gonna help you.

Get out…

I hope you know that part was true.

If you hadn’t left, I would’ve given you your money.

You’d be out of here.

Red.

But Becker…

He needs you.

Fuck you.

[sighs]

Let me make this as easy as I can for you. You gotta drink…

[bangs on door]

[Ambar breathing heavily]

Beck, I got this.

Quiet.

[Red] Beck, I got…

Shut the fuck up.

[Becker chanting]

[in English] Let me teach you something.

[panting]

[Becker coughing]

Open your mouth.

Open your mouth.

[intense breathing]

Open your mouth.

No.

[Ambar gagging]

[groans]

[Ambar gags, coughs]

[grunts, pants]

Please don’t try to leave.

He’ll make it way worse.

[intense breathing]

[door locks]

[sighs]

[footsteps approaching]

[Petra] Please?

[knocking on door]

[Petra] We come in, please?

[knocking continues]

You’re alone?

[Petra] Yes.

[softly] Come on.

[locks door]

Becker?

Yes.

We should stay together.

You want to fight him?

No. He’ll kill us.

He’s different. We must leave.

Now?

No, he’s downstairs, always by the basement door.

We should wait.

But in day he sleeps.

You think they’re keeping other women in the basement?

I don’t know. I don’t want to find out.

There’s something wrong with this place.

What have you seen?

I keep dreaming about home.

My son is there.

But he’s changed, something’s different.

I like him like this.

I can’t leave him.

So I hold him.

I hold him tight, do not let go.

And… And I see this box.

A stone box?

[sniffles]

[Petra] Even when I’m awake, I see it.

I’ve seen it too.

[Maria] No.

[sobbing]

[Petra] I think the box is here.

Where?

Basement.

I want to go home.

[Petra continues singing]

[singing continues]

Ambar.

[in Spanish] Stay a little longer.

[Petra whispers] Ambar.

[Ambar gasps]

[Petra] Ambar. Wake up!

[Red] Come here.

[Petra speaks Romanian]

[Maria in English] No, Petra!

[Red] Get up!

[Ambar grunts]

[Red groans]

[Red] Beck!

No!

[Red groans]

[Ambar groans, coughs]

[doorbell ringing]

[sinister music playing]

[Becker grunts]

[Ambar groans]

[door closes]

[Becker] Go.

[Red] Why do I have to…

[Becker] Now!

[doorbell continues ringing]

[grunts]

[grunts]

[banging on door]

[exhales] Hey, man. It’s a little early to be coming around.

I’m sorry to bother you, but I’m looking for somebody.

Her name is Ambar Cruz.

Sorry, don’t know her.

She’s 5’7″, brown hair, this long.

She said that she was living here.

[Red] Still no.

[Beto] I’m sorry. I know it’s early, but…

[Ambar panting]

Beto!

[Red] Like I said, I ain’t seen her.

She’s in trouble. Maybe she isn’t using her real name.

If she’s lying to you about that, maybe she’s lying to you about where she’s staying.

[Beto] Yeah, I just want to be sure, you know?

[Ambar] Beto!

[Red] Hombre.

She ain’t here.

That’s her coat.

What the hell are you talking about?

[Ambar] Beto!

That’s her coat. My wife gave…

Hombre, settle down!

Don’t hombre me…

[glass shatters]

[in Spanish] Beto, help!

[grunts] Ambar!

Ambar!

Beto, up here! Third floor!

Beto!

[grunts]

[Red] Becker!

[Ambar] Beto!

[banging on door]

[doorknob rattling]

[Beto] Ambar!

[Red] Becker!

[Beto in Spanish] Where are you?

[Ambar] Beto!

Are you okay?

Yes.

Step back!

Beto, watch out, there’s another guy!

[Beto groans]

[Ambar in English] Stop! Stop!

[punches landing]

[Beto groaning]

Leave him alone!

[screams] Leave him alone!

[punch landing]

[in Spanish] Son of a bitch!

[Becker grunts]

[punches landing]

[beating continues]

[Becker panting]

[sobbing]

[heavy panting]

Jesus, Beck. Look what you…

Prepare her.

Upstairs.

Now.

[wind whooshing]

[Maria sobbing]

[footsteps approaching]

[crying] No! No!

[Red] She’s ready. Just calm down, man.

Her next.

[Maria speaking Romanian]

That’s too many in one go, Beck.

You don’t…

[Maria screaming, crying]

What are you going to do to us?

Are you going to kill us?

Of course you’re going to kill us.

Quiet.

Why are you doing this?

I’m trying to help my brother.

[Ambar] By doing this?

He’s sick.

You haven’t seen him after, there’s benefits. Believe me.

We moved back home because we couldn’t afford Beck’s medical bills.

He wasn’t doing so good.

I wanted to convince the old man to let us stay for a while.

Then we saw what he’d done… to those girls.

He made Mom help him, and then he killed her too.

Mary?

Yeah.

We did the world a favor, getting rid of our dad.

I wanted to leave right after, but Beck said we could fix the place up.

But just like Dad, he started spending more time with that damn box.

He thinks it chose him.

And then he started getting better.

Beck says he only needs a few more hits, and then we can stop all this.

Hits of what?

How many, Red?

How many women?

He’s my fucking brother.

Okay.

You need to get out of here.

[Red] We’re done.

[whispers] Red.

Hey.

Hey, look at me.

Come on, look at me.

Let’s get out of here.

[exhales]

[keys jingling]

[clicks]

[chain clinking]

I’m sorry, chica.

[footsteps approaching]

Red.

She’s almost done. Just gotta…

Her next.

[panting]

Don’t fight.

The last one fought.

[knuckles cracking]

[gasps]

Stop!

[groans]

[gasps] No! No, no!

[crying] Red!

[screams] Red! Red!

No!

Help!

Get help.

Please!

Oh my God.

[crying] Stop. Stop!

What the fuck.

Stop! Help!

Yes, I am.

[wheezing hiss approaching]

[rumbling]

Let’s go. Hurry.

[Ambar gasps]

[Beto] Help me!

Help me!

[eerie whispering]

[Beto] Together!

[lights flickering]

One more!

[Ambar yelling]

[Ambar] Beto?

Beto. [panting]

[inhales deeply]

[panting]

[Mama hums tranquil tune]

[humming continues]

[Mama] You’ve always had such beautiful hair.

You’d brush it a hundred times before letting me leave the house.

[Mama] And aren’t you glad I did?

Yes.

[raspy breathing approaching]

Please, Mom, I have to go.

You’re too kind.

You’re too kind.

No.

[Mama] You need to stay, sweetheart.

No.

Stay a little longer.

I can’t do this again.

[suspenseful music continues]

Go check.
