Stay Alive: Directed by William Brent Bell. With Jon Foster, Samaire Armstrong, Frankie Muniz, Jimmi Simpson. For a group of teens, the answer to the mysterious death of their old friend lies within the world of an online video game based on the true story of an ancient noblewoman known as the Blood Countess.

“Stay Alive is a new game in which you have to stay alive or suffer the consequences in real life, itu0026#39;s a pretty cool concept and one that could have been executed way better than it actually was.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSurprisingly the film is far less cheesy than i figured it would be, the cast are quite convincing, albeit as pretty shallow characters and the direction, editing and general production are adequate enough. What let it down was the way it sets out the rules and then picks which ones it will follow depending on what stage the story was at, contriving every step of the way to make it fit.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIt was mildly entertaining to watch and there is a decent sense of tension throughout, although the scares were all a bit cheap and clichéd, and it definitely didnu0026#39;t need the twist at the end, i hope itu0026#39;s not a setup for a sequel.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e5/10”
