Kind of in the vein of The Decent comes Stay Out Stay Alive – another tale off climbing around in deep dark places where evil is sure to dwell – this time around it’s a gold mine that has been cursed by an Indian Chief. Here’s the synopsis:
“Shadowed by a haunting presence in the redwood forest, five young hikers discover an abandoned goldmine dating back to the Gold Rush and descend into madness and greed as the pursuit of easy riches consumes them. STAY OUT STAY ALIVE depicts the struggle of human nature and the curse of insatiable greed, and poses the questions “What would YOU risk – what would YOU sacrifice – for unimaginable wealth?” After an earthquake plummets Donna – one of the hikers – down a mine shaft where she is pinned under a rock, the group must choose between saving their friend or taking their time to unlawfully mine the forbidden gold for themselves. As the group degenerates into conflict, a ghostly remnant of the mine’s past ratchets up the horror of the unfolding events.”
The trailer actually looks pretty damn good – time to have a look.
Barbara Crampton is along for the ride – looks like she plays a Ranger that attempts to warn our sexed-up gang of youngsters about the perils that await them but – of course – they don’t listen.
Brie Mattson, Brandon Wardle, Sage Mears, Christina July Kim, and William Romano-Pugh round out the cast.
The film hits VOD, DVD, and Blu-ray on Nov. 26tth.
