After six friends arrive at a mountain cabin for a long weekend, a monstrous snowstorm traps them. Soon the spirits of the Donner Party -- frontier settlers who resorted to cannibalism in a similar snowstorm -- begin to haunt them. As they start turning on each other, it's not clear whether the ghosts are real or the result of their fear.

The only familiar faces you will see in this Independent horror flick may well be that of Tiffany and James Kyson Lee(from Heroes) but don't let that influence watching this or not. The film starts off a little slow but the stories that are told about what happened with the Donner Party not only keeps you interested enough until the horror elements kick in but it also gives you a brief history into what really happened. Necrosis doesn't really break any rules or supply any new ideas to it's story, it is similar to many other horror films you have seen before as far as story goes but lets face it their isn't much original anymore even in theaters so I can over look that part of the film. For having a low-budget the production values were much better than I expected them to be and the acting was good as well, I have seen worse acting than this in films that cost more to make. The film doesn't contain a lot of blood and guts so if that is what you are expecting here you are going to be disappointed but this is not meant to be that kind of gore fest but the film still provides some very good scares along the way and it even mixes in a bit of humor as well. The story line jumps around a bit but I think that was intentional to keep the audience off guard, just when you think you know where it is headed the film tosses in another curve to throw you off. The effects were well done and the film had some terrifying images that will stick with you even after it is over. Necrosis isn't a perfect film but it is far from the worst either, it could of been better in spots but over-all there is enough going on to keep you interested and entertained. If you like horror that contains some good supernatural elements to it then I suggest giving this a shot, it is creeps and enjoyable.
