Fans of Ewan McGregor, Kristen Stewart and James Van Der Beek (!) will be seeing double this spring, as arthouses and multiplexes host an array of indie films ranging from the travails of septuagenarian New Yorkers looking for love ("The Last New Yorker") to 13-year-old assassins on the hunt for their first kill ("Kick-Ass"). If real life is more your speed, there are new documentaries about reviving animation strips (the Disney doc "Waking Sleeping Beauty") and stripping down (the burlesque history "Behind the Burly Q"), while foreign wonders like the French crime epics "A Prophet" and "Mesrine" mix with Korean treasures "Mother" and "The Good, The Bad and The Weird."

Necrosis Moves Full Steam Ahead: A Movie Review

Director: Jason Robert Stephens.

Writer: Robert Michael Ryan, and Jason Robert Stephens.

Necrosis is a Brink DVD release that stars James Kyson Lee (Heroes), George Stults (7th Heaven), Tiffany, Penny Drake, and Danielle De Luca (Naked Fear). Already close to an April 20th, 2010 DVD and cable release Necrosis utilizes pacing effectively in this indie thriller. Action abounds in the film, which only mildly stumbles in the sound department.

The film attaches itself the the legend of the Donner party who were a group of 1800s travellers that were westward bound. Unfortunately, the Donner party became trapped in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and fed upon each other in a bloody orgy of cannibalism. Many of the characters in Necrosis do not fare much better as character Jerry becomes possessed by either the ghosts of the Donner party or by his paranoid schizophrenia. Either way few come out of this picture alive!

Tiffany Goes Horror in Necrosis

Wait a second, wait a second; first she gets naked, now she’s in a horror movie? Is it possible that 80’s pop icon Tiffany is actually … cool? I guess in this crazy mixed-up world almost anything is possible, no matter how far-fetched it may seem.

The film is called Necrosis, and it also stars James Kyson Lee of “Heroes”, George Stults of “7th Heaven” (don’t pretend like you didn’t watch it), Penny Drake from Zombie Strippers and features the one and only Michael Berryman in a cameo. A pretty bizarre lineup if you ask me, but then the film doesn’t sound exactly normal either.
