      Brian Tallerico UGO One of those movies that thinks loud sounds and shaky cameras account for scares, and reminding of us of truly scary gaming experiences only amplifies its weaknesses. Mar 24, 2007 Full Review J. R. Jones Chicago Reader There's a gothic backstory to all this, which makes no sense but looks pretty cool. Mar 7, 2007 Full Review Peter Bradshaw Guardian Never has a title been more horribly at odds with the way you're actually going to feel while watching the movie. Rated: 1/5 Jul 29, 2006 Full Review Alberto Abuín Espinof Any video game character is a better actor than the ones that work here. [Full Review in Spanish] Feb 13, 2020 Full Review Ethan Alter Film Journal International If Stay Alive teaches us anything, it's that videogames and horror films do not mix...at least in the same movie. Mar 1, 2007 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...a little needless brutality would've almost certainly elevated the proceedings, albeit temporarily...
