While Hayden Panettiere seems to be stuck playing cheerleader roles in movies outside of Heroes, James Kyson Lee seems to be making a name for himself in the horror genre. You can see James in the upcoming horror movie “Shutter”, a remake of the Thai movie of the same name, and now James has wrapped principal photography on another horror movie, this one called “Necrosis”, in which he has a much bigger role than “Shutter”. More about the film and an image of James from the movie below.
About the movie:
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.
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, cannabalistic slaughter.
Our 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. 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.
More than just a riveting tale of death, endurance and survival, the group’s nightmarish descent into madness begins as they relive the horrors of the Donner Party Massacre.
