Stay Alive

Synopsis: Loomis Crowley is testing the underground game Stay Alive with his friends Sarah and Rex. When the game is over, Loomis finds Rex and Sarah dead in their room, and he is pushed by a shadow from the staircase, breaking the banister and hanging the same way he died in the game. Loomis' sister, Emma, gives his game to his best friend, Hutch. They, and his friends Miller, Phineus with his sister October, Swink and Abigail play the game together. When Miller and Phineus die the same way they died in the game, the survivors disclose that the game is based on the life of the evil Countess Elizabeth Bathory. She was buried alive in the tower of her real state in the Geronge Plantation. With the police chasing them, and after the death of October, the survivors reach the house and try to find the corpse of the Countess to destroy her fiend.

- How was it?

- I played this game. Called "Stay Alive."

Seriously, man,

the sickest shit since Fatal Frame.

It was creepy. Really creepy.

Are you gonna make it over here? Can you

come over? You wanna come over?

Dude, look, I'll come up this weekend,

we'll burn it solid.

- I'll see you this weekend.

- Late.

- Shit, man. Don't you knock?

- All right. Whoops.

- Shut the door, perv.

- I found you guys in the game. You got it good.

We haven't played for hours.


This is not real. Don't freak.

- Hello?

- Hello?



Rex! No!



- That was fast.

- Hi. How are you?

- Did you take care of the marina report?

- I was just about to.

Oh, don't bother.

He wants to see you right away,

and he's in one of his moods.

- Happy birthday, by the way.

- Oh, merci. darling.


- I was just gonna...

- Over a month.

That's how long

I've been working on this.

Right? That's, uh...

That's 100... that's 100 hours.

I'm sorry. I'll finish

the marina report as soon as possible.

The ma... The what?

- Marina report?

- Yeah.

Oh, man.


- Hutch.

- What?

You know what?

Have a seat. Enjoy yourself. OK?

All right, listen to me now, OK? I hired you

for one reason, and one reason only.

Now, the walk-through says

I dump the ammo and the boss dies.

I'm sorry. We're not still talking

about Silent Hill 4, are we?


OK. Damn. All right. Uh... I don't know what

else to tell you. You got the hyperblaster?

Do I look like an asshole?

Yes, I have the hyperblaster.

Right, OK. Yeah, dump it.

I mean, it's got unlimited ammo,

nullifies the... Hey, can I get tomorrow off?

Let me think about that.

No, no, no.

I need it to get to the final boss.

Beat her up.

It's the way God intended.

You know, Hutch, if you put as much effort

into clerking as you did into gaming,

you could end up like me someday.

You know that, right?


All right, you can take tomorrow.

How do I do it?

It's easier to kill her

without the blaster.

So lose it right before going down the

stairs. She'll die on her own. Game over.

All right. OK. Hey, man,

are you hip to this PDA sex thing?

- I haven't got into that.

- You've got a phone call, Hutch.

Thank you.

I think that's a vegetable.



Oh, Hutch. I'm so glad that you came.

It means so much to me.

Today we lay to rest

Loomis Crowley...

- Did you just take a picture of me?

- I did.

There are so many crying faces

at this funeral and you seem the saddest,

but you weren't crying,

so I took a picture.

- You and Loomis must have been close.

- Yeah, we were close.

I mean, we were so close, but...

Did you know Loomis?


I grew up with Sarah back in Georgia. I was

supposed to hang out with her that night.

Really? Yeah, so was I.

I always thought I'd be taking pictures

on her wedding day, not her funeral.

- Looks like you're up.

- Emma. Hi.

- Hi.

- How are you? God, look at you.

You're so grown-up.

How are you doing?

I'm OK. Um, here.

This is your brother's bag.

You don't want this?

No. Mom and Dad won't let me play those

video games. They were gonna toss 'em.

You know, they're too violent.

Besides, he would want you to have 'em.

Come here. Take care, all right?


Here. If you need to talk,

that's my number.

- Hey, sunshine.

- Hey.

Didn't think you'd be back so soon.

Give us a kiss.

- Sorry, Hutch. Are you OK?

- Yeah, I don't know. It's hard to believe you know.

Tragedy, Hutch.

I tell you, bro, first your parents, now this.

God dealt the straws

and gave you a short one, man.

You know, Phin,

the problem with your mouth
