Necrosis is an independent psychological thriller film directed by Jason Robert Stephens and stars Michael Berryman, Penny Drake and George Stults.[1]



During the winter of 1846, a group of ill-fated pioneers, known as the Donner Party, were on their way to California through a newly discovered mountain pass. They encountered the worst blizzard ever recorded, trapping them with little food or shelter.[2]

As days turned into weeks, and weeks into months, the members of the Donner Party slowly dissolved into madness, eventually turning on each other in what became a desperate, cannibalistic slaughter.[2]

The story begins in 2008 as six friends arrive at an isolated cabin to enjoy a long weekend in the snow. An epic snowstorm interrupts their vacation, trapping them on the mountain and resurrecting the haunting ghosts of the Donner Party. They struggle to find out whether these are these true demonic 'entities' or if it is simply 'cabin fever' that is bringing out their fears and paranoia, causing friends to turn against each other as their reality deteriorates around them.[2]



The film began principal photography on January 19, 2008 in South Lake Tahoe California. Additional scenes were filmed in Big Bear, California, and Ventura, California.[3] It was produced by Unknown Productions and distributed by American World Pictures.


The premiere was on 9 November 2009 and will coming of DVD on 20 April 2010.[4]
