Storyline

Loomis Crowley is testing the underground game Stay Alive with his friends Sarah and Rex. When the game is over, Loomis finds Rex and Sarah dead in their room, and he is pushed by a shadow from the staircase, breaking the banister and hanging the same way he died in the game. Loomis' sister, Emma, gives his game to his best friend, Hutch. They, and his friends Miller, Phineus with his sister October, Swink and Abigail play the game together. When Miller and Phineus die the same way they died in the game, the survivors disclose that the game is based on the life of the evil Countess Elizabeth Bathory. She was buried alive in the tower of her real state in the Geronge Plantation. With the police chasing them, and after the death of October, the survivors reach the house and try to find the corpse of the Countess to destroy her fiend.

Goofs

When Fin is playing the game on the couch, Swink, Abigail, Hutch and October go stand to his right. Swink is standing in front of Abigail slightly to the right, and in the next shot he's right behind Fin (unless you watch the Director's Cut which shows Swink moving to behind Fin as he smokes a bong).

Pretty Good Movie, Worth A Look!
25 February 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie was actually really good, Sophia Bush is the only reason i actually decided to watch it, and i am very glad that i did. The graphics were good, and the plot was very original and awesome. If you want a horror movie to rent on a weekend, this is definitely a recommendation by me. Check it out, it's a movie that you will love or you will hate. The plot is very simple - A Group of teens are playing a video game, while trying to survive, the learn that if they die in the game, they die for real. Can they 'Stay Alive' long enough? You might be like me, and think it sounds really crappy, but it's not! anyways, go check it out!
