Stay Alive Reviews

Page 1 of 4

One of those movies that thinks loud sounds and shaky cameras account for scares, and reminding of us of truly scary gaming experiences only amplifies its weaknesses.

There's a gothic backstory to all this, which makes no sense but looks pretty cool.

If Stay Alive teaches us anything, it's that videogames and horror films do not mix...at least in the same movie.

...a little needless brutality would've almost certainly elevated the proceedings, albeit temporarily...

Yeah, the plot sounds like utter nonsense, but it's fun.

- Aspirante a Terror em Silent Hill (jogo e filme) que, repleto de clichês e personagens caricaturais, revela-se apenas cansativo e previsível.

...if the filmmakers could have dispensed with the actors and plot altogether, they might have had a better movie.

This movie has a nostalgic retro feel to it, like the old Universal horror movies that we now find very funny. But alas, where are all the drive-in theaters to show it in?

Never has a title been more horribly at odds with the way you're actually going to feel while watching the movie.

A cool idea rapidly falls apart. A completely missed opportunity.

Something of a disappointment and nowhere near as scary as The Ring, which it rips off shamelessly.

Stuttering like a busted console, the film's lack of invention is only rivalled by a paucity of gore which will seem positively comical to gamers long since inured to cyberspace slaughter.

... while its narrative style -- elliptical, fragmented, even eccentric at times -- is ambitious and imaginative, it sometimes makes for a loss of clarity and momentum.

The dialogue seldom rises above the level of twaddle -- unspeakable in every sense of the word.

The filmmakers are so at a loss for fresh ways to shock that they even dredge up the twitchy, girl-with-hair-hanging-in-her-face trick from The Ring and The Grudge.

Never mind staying alive. You'd be doing well to simply stay awake through all 85 interminably inert minutes of Stay Alive.

Implausibly tedious, Stay Alive has none of the vicarious thrills of, say, Konami's Silent Hill 2. It's barely even Pong unplugged.
