* ArtisticLicenseHistory: Elisabeth Bathory did exist in history but was Hungarian. She is infamous as a serial killer who was rumored to have murdered young girls and [[BloodBath bathed in their blood]] to keep herself youthful. In the film, her InUniverse story is set in New Orleans and her infamy is on a much different scale.

Alternately, it might be a case of the writer's using [[https://www.historicmysteries.com/madame-lalaurie-female-serial-killer/ Madame Delphine LaLaurie]] and giving her a more recognizable name.

* DownerEnding: For the world at large: [[spoiler:In spite of Hutch and co's struggles, Stay Alive has been released in stores, having apparently finished its beta testing and reached its release date by the end of the movie. As the GameStop clerk from earlier eagerly heads home with his copy, numerous voices are reciting the opening chant in unison as the game's opening plays, ending on a foreboding shot of Game!Elizabeth, implying that the movie's events are going to happen all over again for all of these players.]]

* GoneHorriblyRight: The creator of Stay Alive wanted to make a horror game unlike any other, using his obsession with Elizabeth Bathory and her life for inspiration. [[spoiler:It ends up being so authentic that it game ends up calling her vengeful spirit back from the grave to scare and murder all the players as she pleases.]]

* ShownTheirWork: Despite the things they got wrong above, some of their video game references are correct, which is because they hired [[EpicGames CliffyB]] as their consultant.

** A bit more fitting is this line from Hutch when he realizes that [[spoiler:Stay Alive continues playing and sets up their deaths regardless of whether it is paused or not.]]

* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: Hutch tells Miller that the final boss in the first ''VideoGame/SilentHill'' game will die if he confronts it without any ammo, so he should drop the hyper-blaster before the fight. The problem is that you couldn't drop items in the first game, so his advice wouldn't work.

* ChekovsGun: While everyone's playing the game, Phinneas discovers that while the Blood Countess can break the glass in players' mirrors, the mirrors can still be used by turning them around, as it turns out the the frames were made from reflective metal. [[spoiler:In the final confrontation against Elizabeth Bathory, Hutch uses the reflective metal on the back of his laptop to show Elizabeth her reflection, causing her to fly into a rage and try to break it like all the other glass surfaces she has broken throughout the movie. This gives him the opening he needs to set the room on fire.]]
