Necrosis Plot Synopsis:

In 2009, 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. But, are they true 'entities' or is it simply 'cabin fever' that brings out their fears and darkness, causing friends to turn against each other as reality deteriorates around them.

Necrosis (2009) Review

Necrosis (2009) is a 1h 30 min American psychological thriller horror movie that was shot in Big Bear City, San Bernardino National Forest, California, USA; Lake Tahoe, California, USA and South Lake Tahoe, California, USA. Director and co-writer Jason Robert Stephens (Vampire Night (2000), Decay (1998), Merchants of Death (1999)) failed upon executing this film into being a good watch. The movie contains bad language, minor, brief breast nudity, violence, ghost, hauntings, ghost child, possession, blood, hallucination, cannibalism, and claustrophobia.

Necrosis which is also known as Blood Snow starts with someone yelling in the year 1846 that hell’s gate has opened and then we skipped to present time where six people decide to go to a cabin near Donner State Park. The group decided to stay at no other place than at a cabin up in the mountains with zero cell phone reception and not to mention ton loads of snow falling with a generator that is on the fritz. The group discovered that they are staying near where the famous Donner Party tragedy occurred several years ago.

Jerry (James Kyson - NCIS: Los Angeles (2016), Sleepy Hollow (2017), Justified (2014), Heroes (2006-2010)) was the first one to start seeing ghosts while everyone else appears happy. The pioneer ghost warns Jerry to “save himself,” and the ghost also warns others in the group to save themselves later in the movie. Jerry became very paranoid until - no spoilers. Necrosis contained elements of a traditional horror movie which is a plus, but it was not enough to help the film escalate into an average horror movie. The girl in the opening scene singing gave me the creeps and led me to believe that I was in for a treat.

I assumed that Necrosis/Blood Snow was going to be at least a little gory, but there was not much blood to be seen. I could not help but think of Evil Dead (2013) several times while watching this movie because there were too many similarities. It was sad to see that this movie had potential but fell short in execution.
