Netflix horror film No One Gets Out Alive premiered on September 29, 2021 and although most scenes are based in a creep boarding house, the cast went international for filming – where was it actually filmed?
As Halloween closes in, Netflix satisfies those craving spooky stories with their 2021 collection of horror films and series.
No One Gets Out Alive is the latest release, following Mike Flanagan’s Midnight Mass. Based on Adam Nevill’s novel of the same name, the film follows Ambar (Cristina Rodlo), a Mexican undocumented immigrant who arrives in the US to chase the American Dream. Since she has no ID, she resides in a suspicious boarding house, where she finds herself in grave danger.
The old house is located in a near-derelict neighborhood in St Louis, Missouri, but the cast actually filmed elsewhere.
Where was No One Gets Out Alive filmed?
The film’s IMDb states that filming took place in Cleveland, Ohio and in Romania’s capital city, Bucharest.
Filming happened throughout 2020 since the entertainment industry was put on hold in March. David Barrera, who portrays Beto, confirmed that exterior filming in Cleveland began on March 14, 2020 but was immediately halted the next day due to lockdown.
Six months later, the cast were flown to Romania complete the remainder of the movie until November.
What happens to Ambar in No One Gets Out Alive?
Everything goes down towards the end of the movie, where Ambar gets captured by Becker and gets taken to the basement of the house, where she is placed on a stone bed.
While Ambar enters dream where she relives her last conversation with her mother, a horrifying spider-like monster with a human head appears from a stone box.
What’s confusing is that Ambar is able to fend off the creature by smothering her mother with a pillow in her dream, when her mother asks her to stay; she may have fought the monster with her subconscious.
Now to deal with Becker and Red: she kills Becker with the bat and Red gets dragged to the stone bed in the basement, where he gets devoured by the spider monster. The film ends when she leaves the house and a month flies around her, which she can control – this raises so many questions.
Why and how can she control the moth and how does she have the ability to control the deadly creature downstairs? Was she the monster?
