Best known as “that horror movie with Frankie Muniz in it”, Stay Alive features a group of teenagers who discover a new, “underground” survival-horror video game. Unfortunately, the game doesn’t just kill your characters, it kills its players as well. Sounding like a bad Goosebumps book premise, does this B-horror movie successfully appeal to gamers and casual audiences, or does it fail to entertain both?
I think Stay Alive is just as bad as other cheap horror movies that aren't based on games. I don't know if it's just that Hollywood has no respect for gaming, horror movies are a tough thing to excel at.
