When everyone first boots up the game and Swink puts on his gaming glove, he puts it on his right hand. Yet, when the group is customizing their characters, the camera switches to a close-up of his controller, and the glove is now on his left hand. In the following shot, the glove is back on his right hand. See more »
I loved this movie, just because now a days Hollywood can't make a horror flick without Blood, guts, gore, and nudity. I mean usually I'm against PG-13 horror movies because without the blood and gore they just can't seem to make it work, but with Stay Alive the storyline and plot kept me on the edge of my seat the whole movie. The character development was great, sure some things could of been cut shorter and not so run-on sorta say. But i think for a PG-13 horror movie its awesome. Strong plot that keeps you watching i suggest if you like horror movies without all the bloody gory stuff...Go see this its a great film and i suggest everyone to watch it, it's worth it.
