Share Article

Unknown Productions Inc. has finished with 3 weeks of principle photography with an ensemble of talented actors including James Kyson Lee (NBC Heroes), George Stults (7th Heaven) and Tiffany (1980's Pop Icon). The cast also includes Horror Movie Icon Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes) and character actor Mickey Jones (Penny Dreadful) in the Psychological Horror Film, Necrosis.

Unknown Productions Incorporated has wrapped production on the Independent Psychological Horror film, Necrosis. A few pick-up days and loose ends is all that remains left before their Post-Production journey begins. The Necrosis story follows a group of friends at an isolated cabin in the Sierra Nevada Mountains who become trapped by an epic snowstorm and are haunted by ghosts from the Donner Party. Writers, Robert Michael Ryan and Jason Stephens, wanted heavy snowfall and they got it. The cast and crew survived 2 weeks of relentless snowstorms on location in the Sierra Nevada Mountains to get the footage.

Filming mainly on-location, Necrosis didn't have the "studio" money for snow machines and high end special effects so they relied on Mother Nature.

"We got 12 feet of snow in 10 days" comments Director Jason Stephens, "there were days when I woke up and looked out the window and thought.... if this film wasn't self-financed, I would have called in and said - 'nope, snowing too hard today, not filming.....' but with our budget, we had to film everyday. We got it done and it looks incredible. There is no way anyone will doubt that the characters were trapped by a snowstorm. We actually were!"

The Lake Tahoe area received record amounts of snowfall during production. The Necrosis production dealt with blizzard conditions including winds gusting over 70 miles per hour and snowfall amounts measuring in the multiple feet per day instead of the typical inches per day.
