Do Not Pass Go, Do Not Stay Awake

"I LOVE the horror genre, the good ones, the "bad" ones, even the cheesey '80s ones. But this movie is just AWFUL. Let me say that again, this movie is just AWFUL. The "plot" is so thin and less than interesting, you barely even know any of the character's names so don't expect to feel anything when they get killed (actually, you might pray for them to get killed because: 1) the acting is beyond awful and 2) it would create some action on the screen, and lastly...the special effects are really not very special. I've seen scarrier plug in animatronic Christmas figures.Don't waste any time or money on this movie. The producers didn't."
I'd just like to gloat for a moment about this:

"I got my copy of "The Stay Awake" for under $10 and it's now going for $98 online? Good lord, that's obscene. This is an OK movie, but it's by no means worth that much money and anyone that spends that much for it is obviously more insane than the people pricing it that way. And now for the story, well, a bunch of girls in some school are stalked by some serial killer's ghost that inexplicably ended up in Europe after being executed in the US. Even though this is a South African movie. Go figure. And you WILL be fighting to stay awake at times, although for some reason I really did like this, sort of. Anyway it is DEFINITELY not worth any $98."
