Freestyle Digital Media has set a Jan. 17 home-DVD release date for director Elise Robertson’s cannibal frightener Donner Pass. “Teen Wolf” recurring Desiree Hall stars as part of a group of snowboarding teens consumed by an ancient curse while snowboarding in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
The film’s official synopsis reads:
DONNER PASS tells the story of settlers in 1846 that became snowbound in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and had to resort to cannibalism to survive.
Some 150 years later, a group of teens on a snowboard trip discover that the curse of the Donner Party still haunts those mountains when members of their group start turning up not only dead, but half-eaten.
Nothing – and no one – is what it seems in this provocative dark thriller. And history doesn’t always stay in the past.
Donner Pass was picked up by Freestyle Digital Media at the American Film Market in November.
Hall is best known for playing Beacon Hills’ sexy school nurse Jennifer on MTV’s new “Teen Wolf” series. The pretty redhead has also guest starred on the TV shows “NCIS: Los Angeles,” “CSI: Miami,” and NBC’s short-lived Jimmy Smits-courtroom drama “Outlaw.” Donner Pass is Hall’s feature film debut.
