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

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

Videogames are no longer brainless, so why are videogame movies so slow to evolve?

An anemic attempt to update the horror genre's imperiled-teens-meet-bloodletting-uber-fiend substratum.

It's unlikely that Stay Alive could ever have been a good movie in the traditional sense, but it might have been better if Bell and co-writer Matthew Peterman had done more to exploit their gaming premise.

Perhaps the worst horror film to not have Uwe Boll's name in the credits.

The star of Stay Alive is a cutting-edge video game, but the film still has hackneyed horror at its heart.

A notion of an outline of a rough draft of a killer video-game flick.

There's a fascinating and terrifying story to be told about Elizabeth Bathory, the dramatically depraved 17th century sadist known as the Blood Countess. This ain't it.

Here's a movie that tries to be a video game but is less entertaining than a vending machine.

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.

The hybrid of cyber antics and bayou creepiness doesn't quite jell, but it all ends bloodily, and in an efficient 85 minutes, too. I'm not complaining.

What will terrify the audience very early on is the realization that there's better acting in the video game than on the big screen.

Debuting director William Brent Bell, who wrote the script with producer Matthew Peterman, keeps the pace brisk and the pot bubbling.
