Hackneyed horror. The title refers to a videogame that was being tested by players who subsequently died. The game is then passed on to Hutch (Foster). When he and his fellow gamers play, more teens die and Hutch finally realizes that when a player dies in the game, they die exactly the same way in real life. Their nemesis (for no good reason) turns out to be sadistic, blood-bathing 16th-century Hungarian countess Elizabeth Bathory, who is now occupying a Louisiana plantation. Apparently the deaths keep her young and beautiful. Makes about as much sense as it sounds like it would.

Stay Alive

Stay Alive was a good movie. Some of my friends didn't think it was that scary but I thought it was. I'd definitely watch Stay Alive again. Stay Alive is about a video game. If you die in the game, then that's how you'll die in real life. I'm glad this couldn't really happen in real life. To die the same way in real life the way you did in a video game would be horrible. I would never want to play a video game ever again. The movie was kind of corny and cheesy but in all it was a good horror-flick.
