Are you a big fan of video games? Especially survival horror like the Resident Evil series? Perhaps the film Stay Alive will give you reason to reconsider.

When an old friend is mysteriously and brutally slain, a group of teens hold in their hands an super-realistic videogame called Stay Alive. The game is based on the creepy and terror-inducing true story of a 17th century noblewoman who is called The Blood Countess. Other than these few facts, the teens know nothing about the game - except that A) They're not supposed to have it and B) They can't wait to play it.

Naturally, kids being kids, they're unable to resist the temptation and start to play the gory game. It's not long before they come to a chilling realization, though. It seems that they are being systematically murdered one-by-one in the same method as what happened to the character they played in the game. Soon, they're having to deal with a real world confrontation with the Blood Countess in a desperate effort to keep from suffering the same grisly fate as their friends.

Stay Alive has a terrific young cast, including Jon Foster (The Door in the Floor), Frankie Muniz (Malcolm in the Middle), Milo Ventimiglia (Gilmore Girls) and the wonderful Samaire Armstrong (The O.C., Entourage). The concept behind the film is certainly a novel approach to the horror genre, and should intrigue young audiences who seem to be consistently hungry for the next big creepy thing. (Kim Hollis/BOP)
