Movie Info

In this suspense thriller, a group of students at an all-girls Catholic school come up with a new idea to raise funds for school projects -- they'll have a "Stay Awake," in which supporters can pledge to pay a certain amount of money for each hour that the girls can go without sleep. The students and a supervising teacher lock themselves in the school for a long night without shut-eye, but they soon discover that they're not alone. John Brown, a psychotic rapist and murderer nicknamed "The Angel of Darkness," was recently executed for his crimes, but has risen from the grave as a strange humanoid beast, and he makes his way into the school, preying on the innocent girls within. Who will survive, and how can they defeat a force of wickedness incarnate? The cast includes Tanya Gordon, Shirley Jane Harris, Jayne Hutton, and Heath Porter. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Stay Awake

(* 1/2): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon13.gif[/img] A boring slasher film.

TTT C

Stay Awake starts off strong with an opening that looks like the film will develop into Wes Craven's Shocker. Unfortunately, that is not the case. Instead, the film becomes nothing more than a ho-hum, late-80s Satanic slasher film that lacks plot and character development even for a slasher film. Despite a promising setup, the film is just plain boring.
