Missed a moment from the Emmys red carpet?
We've got it covered. Relive the red carpet now! 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. For what it is, this movie rocks! Also, Some of it was creepy, but in a very formulaic way. You should see it if you want a silly horror movie that doesn't completely suck.
Malcolm in the Middle was in it -- too bad, I thought that kid was actually good. The house itself is pretty creepy, and the game, if it does or will exist, would be very fun to play.

This movie was really good. It made me jump a few times in my seat, and I also love how it was based on a real pesron.
Making it more scary than it would be if it was based on someone from the writers own imagenations. Having it based on the real Elizabeth Bathory had made it more creepy This movie was really good.
Having it based on the real Elizabeth Bathory had made it more creepy because you realize that there was a real person that would really do all the things in this movie. This movie was really good it will really creep you out if you see it. People who gave this movie 8 and up must be getting paid.
Stay Alive did a better job then I thought it would but it left a whole lot of questions.
One being why in the heck did an evil ghost woman come back in the form of a video game to kill people? This is never even addressed apparently she just looked down from her tower and said "well all the Stay Alive did a better job then I thought it would but it left a whole lot of questions.
This is never even addressed apparently she just looked down from her tower and said "well all the young kids are into the videa games I guess thats as good a way to kill them as any" The other thing is at the end how the game imitates real life. I just can't believe malcom in the middle drops a crow bar in the game and it appears in life. Another problem with the movie is who the hell named these people? With great names like Hutch, October, Swink and Phineus. This group of friends had the worst parents ever. Another issue was the romance between Abby and Hutch.
It seemed very forced and really stupid. The last problem was after the characters figured out that if they die in the game they die in real life they make the logical choice to just stop playing the game. So the movie comes out and just says "no, you stop I will just play for you. Yeah that will work" Through out the movie it seemed very forced and just hard to believe. Not the worst horror movie around but there are far better options out there to watch instead. Don't waste your money on the price of a ticket.
We're talking about one scene in which a boom mike is visible, and another in which a profile shot of an actress reveals a large orange object an earplug, I think in her left ear. It's THAT kind of bad. It's the kind of bad film making in which characters have knowledge of conversations that took place while they were elsewhere. Phineas, for instance, has been out driving while the rest of the cast has been talking about how people are dying when they die in "the game," yet when he receives a call on his cell phone responds that he'll be alright because "That's right!
I haven't died in the game! It's the kind of bad film making wherein the performances are so paper-thin that, clearly, if this were bad in any sort of memorable way instead of merely being sloppy and formulaic , Frankie Muniz would surely be up for a Razzie for his stilted, twitchy, downright annoying performance.
It's the kind of bad that has the main weapons of the oh-so-horrible ghostly antagonist turn out to be a pair of scissors and a horse-drawn carriage that can be vaporized by throwing a rose at it. It's the kind of bad that has a main character suddenly blurt out her entire life story while riding in a van with no apparent provocation, and her story has absolutely no connection to anything in the rest of the movie at all.
Clearly, the writers were unable to string together anything coherent here. To make matters worse, the film takes itself seriously yet fails utterly to deliver on the gore. There isn't a single good scare in the film; it's all hand-on-the-shoulder, bump-in-the-night stuff here. In fact, we never really see a death scene other than one or two knife strokes.
Most of the time, the lights go out, there's a scream, and suddenly another one's bit the dust. Either that or a quick cutaway. Truly gutless stuff here. No doubt the producers realized that nobody over the age of 14 would buy into this pablum and decided to go after a PG rating.
