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. Written by

Although the term "Blood Countess" is used in the movie's synopsis, it is never said within the movie. When Hutch and Abigail are hearing the story of Elizabeth Bathory from the author of the book "The Lady of Blood", the author says, "Thus began her obsession" (speaking of using the blood of the girls as a "Fountain of Youth", as Abigail says), to which Hutch replies, "The Blood Countess" (not in the theatrical version, but at approximately 1 hour 1 minute and 44 seconds on the uncut-version DVD).

When the detective is killed in his truck, his head explodes, covering the entire windshield with blood. However, in the very next shot, which is a side-view shot of his truck sitting in the parking space, you can clearly see all the way through the now totally clean windshield to the other side.

Better than any of the "block busters" out at the mo...
As a major horror game fan i loved the fact that this film included references to my favourites "fatal frame" (project zero over here in blighty!) and silent hill... so what if there's a couple of holes in the story? that just makes it even closer to a horror game! how many of you who have actually played silent hill or fatal frame can honestly say it made perfect sense? It just added to my enjoyment of the film, and pointing out similarities in the film from the games made me feel like a big fat nerd :0) but a happily entertained nerd! I liked that it wasn't a slash-em up gross out like the majority of horror films are now, and that the story was based on an actual legend (the story of Elizabeth Bathory, not the characters in the film). Overall, impressed, would recommend it, but not to wusses who get nightmares easily :0D
