No One Lives: Luke Evans Takes Your Breath Away

Kids of the 80s and 90s  have all grown up with slasher films where the bad guy is horribly disfigured -- take Freddy Krueger, for example. There's also the hockey-masked Jason from the Friday the 13th franchise, and who can ever forget the miniscule Chucky of Child's Play. These are guys who want to make you run and hide. 

Then here comes Luke Evans -- you know, snappy dresser, cool accent, once played a Greek god... who comes up and takes victims left and right. Yep, that's what this hunk, as the character Driver, does in the new horror film No One Lives

The trailer speaks for itself. This is a gore-fest that every blood-thirsty moviegoer should see. It takes your breath away and will leave you at the edge of your seats, trying to figure out who is next and if truly No One Lives.  

Despite the availability of CGI effects, film director Ryuhei Kitamura says that he went old-school on this one, believing that the story and the acting will be more than enough to thrill and chill. He adds that there is more to the script than just a bloodbath. "I loved the script because it was not just about blood and guts. I was fascinated by the character of Driver; a non-stop killing machine doing it all for love. To me this is a twisted love story."

If Kitamura's name is familiar to you gamers out there, here is the reason: he was the one who directed all the scenes for the worldwide mega hit video game, Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes. He says that Luke was the first and only choice for the role of a hot psychopath. "I needed someone who was not only good looking and sexy but also has intelligence, madness, and a sense of humor. Luke gave life to the Driver character. He is an amazing actor."       

Luke is set to get your heart-pounding (literally!) as No One Lives hits Philippine cinemas on September 11. It is released and distributed by solar Entertainment Corporation.
