Does Tiffany really have that much name value??..Well, I guess we know the answer to that.
Directed By: Jason Robert Stephens (Vampire Night)
Well looks like I’m back dealing with The Donnar Party only this time instead of the story of that I’m dealing with a horror story based off that..It has potential right? No, not really..
Necrosis is the name of this movie but you’d never know by watching as it says “Blood Snow” at the start which baffles me but doesn’t baffle me as much as trying to make sense of this mess of a movie.
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.
Well if you want to look up a prime example of a horror movie that lacks any real heart I think you’ll find this one at the top of the list. The idea isn’t too horrible but it may borrow too much on other films to get an all around point for being original. The acting is alright with some people in it but I’ll say that Tiffany (yes THAT Tiffany, the singer) isn’t going to be winning any awards for her acting as she obviously phones it home. Which I’d say is pretty fitting for the film as it does the same.
Character development (not counting Tiffany and her character) did have slight promise as right up front it becomes a little hard to tell who’s going to be the last folks standing based on personality. However that quickly fades away and how well these folks take their friends getting killed when the killing starts its comical. It’s like, “Hey I spent a great deal of life knowing this person and now they are dead!..Oh well, you sure I’m not making any progress getting you in the sack!??”
Lost in this mess is Hills Have Eyes star Michael Berryman. Don’t get happy by seeing his name here all you old school horror fans because he’s wasted as well in this one. There’s a lot of things wasted. Actors, plots, motives, one scene where a person rushes in with a bag that is apparently soo important that even as they die they make a point to mention it gets wasted as they never even look to see just what was in the bag the man gave his life to bring. It’s never mentioned again after that scene. Is this a plot hole or some sorta editing error?? I wish I knew because it makes no sense.
Next time you want to make a movie where your crazy guy in a snowed in area wants to channel Jack Nicholson I’d suggest getting someone who can act. This Asian guy playing the part here just puts on his shocked face and stiffly walks through the performance.
But hey! I guess you can have a little fun with this movie by taking a shot every time you see CGI splatter from blood.
Avoid avoid avoid! Not at all worth seeing not even for a laugh. Tiffany might have some name value but I don’t see where she brings anything to the table besides a nice looking rack..Which you can see in the bare with a quick search on Google.
So if you are thinking of watching this movie, in the words of a funny fake horror movies trailer..DON’T!
