A group of young hikers discovers an abandoned 19th century goldmine in Yosemite. An earthquake plummets one of the group members down the mine shaft where she is pinned under a rock. The group must choose between saving their friend by calling the park rangers for assistance, or taking the time to unlawfully mine the discovered gold for themselves.

Smartly written, cleverly staged supernatural thriller
13 June 2019 | by bts141See all my reviews

The Shining meets The Descent at The Treasure of Sierra Madre. Stay Out, Stay Alive is a well acted, crisply shot, creepily staged suspense / horror allegory about the corrosive effects of greed. Feature film writing / directing debut by long term ILM animator Dean Yurke, who uses VFX sparingly, building tension by what you barely see, but know is an ever present threat. Plenty of shocks but at the PG 13 level. A remarkable achievement by director, cast and crew.
