Choose or Die – Storyline
Hal (Eddie Marsan), a married man with a dysfunctional family who is a collector of retro video games, receives a copy of an interactive fiction computer game called “CURS>R”. Hal installs the game and starts to play, expecting it to be nothing more than a classic 1980s text-based adventure game. But when the objects around him begin to interact with the game he realizes it is something more, and his family is harmed as a result.
Three months later, college student Kayla (Iola Evans) is working as a cleaner to pay for her studies. She provides new and old technology to her computer-geek friend, Isaac (Asa Butterfield), who in return helps her learn to code so that she can gain sufficient skills for her classes.
Kayla’s mother, Thea (Angela Griffin), has become a drug addict after the death of her son Ricky (Kaylenn Aires Fonseca), and also suffers psychological and sexual abuse from her rent collector, Lance (Ryan Gage), who supplies her with drugs and forces her into prostitution in exchange for not being evicted from her apartment.
One day while visiting Isaac after work, Kayla discovers the CURS>R game in his apartment, together with a phone number offering a $125,000 prize. She calls the number and gets a recorded message from the Terror Director (Robert Englund) telling her to complete the game and insert the number code at the end of it to win the money. Attracted by the offer, Kayla accepts the challenge, thinking it will be easy money and arranges a deal with Isaac to share the prize.
That night, Kayla starts playing the game in a café and discovers that it can interfere with reality in different ways – the game level ends with a waitress eating broken glass and dying. The next day, Kayla tries to stop the game by destroying the tape. She tells Isaac what happened, but he finds her story hard to believe.
Later, while Kayla is working a graveyard shift, her mother calls her desperate for help. Kayla discovers that CURS>R has managed to escape to the net and is following her, forcing her to choose ways to save her mother from a swarm of rats. Thea eventually falls from her bedroom window and, severely injured, ends up in hospital.
Later that night, Kayla goes to Isaac’s apartment and together they try to discover the mystery behind the game. They find a sort of code in the sound of CURS>R, in an unknown language, and theorize it is what allows the game to interact with the real world. Together they manage to survive the night after the game exploits Kayla’s trauma over the death of her brother, who drowned in a public pool. Isaac and Kayla hack the prize number to a storage facility where the game was created.
In recording sessions of the making of CURS>R, they discover that the creator of the game, Beck (Joe Bolland), found a curse in different symbols and embedded the codes into the game to gain more benefits by using the suffering of gamers. When they discover the code needed, the game traps Isaac and forces, Kayla, to choose in order to save him, but ends up killing him nonetheless.

The game orders Kayla to “beat the boss” and gives her a set of coordinates to follow that lead her to Hal’s house, now a cruel man who tortures his wife Laura (Kate Fleetwood) and son Gabe (Pete Machale). Hal explains that he never ended the game and after two levels it promised to leave them alone if he made more copies of it. The game then orders both Kayla and Hal to fight while reversing the pain each experience; ie, if Hal is hurt, Kayla feels it and if Kayla is hurt, Hal feels it.
An intense fight takes place, during which Hal is drowned and Kayla barely manages to survive. Kayla then receives the game prize, which enables her to take total control of the curse. She uses this ability to kill Lance, which heals both herself and her mother. It is then revealed that the building in which Kayla worked is owned by Beck, who asks her who’s next to suffer. Kayla answers that it will be only the ones who deserve to.
