Yet another lackluster horror movie based on a video game. A guy playing a new video game about a haunted house and the creatures that dwell within is killed in the exact same way as he dies in the game. His friends come across this game, play it, and they start dropping off one by one. They realize it has something to do with the game but the game won't let them quit playing. It's basically THE RING, but with a video game, and the villain is the spirit of the woman who the game is about. The whole thing about Elizabeth Bathory is turned into a bunch of gobble-dee-gook (script writers should do their research on the topic they are writing about). STAY ALIVE should really be titled STAY AWAKE, because that's what I was trying to do watching it.
