Forgettable thriller set in New Orleans about a group of gamers (Jon Foster, Samaire Armstrong, Frankie Muniz, Sophia Bush and Jimmi Simpson) who race to unravel the mystery of a sinister video game -- possessed by a vengeful spirit -- after they start winding up dead, killed in the exact manner that they met their demise in the game. Director William Brent Bell cribs off Japanese horror films about haunted technology ("The Ring," "The Pulse," "One Missed Call"), padding his rickety, derivative script with cybergore, resulting in a mostly suspense-free film that few beyond its targeted adolescent audience will find engaging. Recurring violence, including a graphic hanging and other disturbing images, bloody video-game images, a brief kinky sexual encounter with shadowy suggested nudity, fleeting drug content, an instance of rough language, as well as crude language and profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
