Plot Summary

Get ready for supernatural chills and terrifying challenges in Stay Alive, the mind-bending thriller about a killer video game. The real world and the game world gruesomely collide when a group of friends play Stay Alive, a mysterious underground videogame that kills the gamer whose character dies in play. Inspired by the shocking true story of the 17th century serial killer known as the Blood Countess, the videogame gives disturbing new meaning to the phrase "game over." In a death defying race against time, the survivors must solve the mystery of the game while desperately trying to stay alive.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The star of Stay Alive is a cutting-edge video game, but the film still has hackneyed horror at its heart. – Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: Videogames are no longer brainless, so why are videogame movies so slow to evolve? – Gregory Kirschling, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: An anemic attempt to update the horror genre's imperiled-teens-meet-bloodletting-uber-fiend substratum. – John Anderson, Variety, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: This is a cool/potentially creepy idea only if you're in high school and goofing around with your friends at the movie theater. For everyone else, this isn't just a preposterous premise for a horror movie, it's a source of unintentional hilarity. – Christy Lemire, Associated Press, Jun 24, 2010

What a Horror Movie should be!

I have seen a lot of horror movies and this one tops all of them! The Grudge, Chainsaw and Village are amateur movies. They either have a horrible story, or is just full of guts and no story at all! But this film has both and it is tightly woven into a beautiful package. Each character in the film has a certain personality that can always tell you who is gonna die next which leaves a touch to the film that always puts me at the edge of my seat. I always look forward to being scared in a show, and this is always perfect if you want to crap your pants! I don't know about the other people's comments, but I give it 2 big thumbs up!

amazing movie

This movie is one of the best thrillers i've ever seen. i saw it twice and i loved it more the second time. i certainly recomend this movie and it is a great buy.


this was a really scary but amazing movie. it's realistic graphics actually made you think you were really in the game. if you haven't yet, you must see this movie! <3
