Meet the ‘Donner’ Party in First Trailer

Arroyo Filmworks is proud to announce the completion of Donner Pass, the first feature film from Emmy award-winning director Elise Robertson. Featuring an ensemble cast of talented young actors alongside Hollywood veterans John Kassir (Jack the Giant Killer, Tales from the Crypt) and Eric Pierpoint (Transformers II, Holes), the story follows a group of teenagers who get snowed in near Lake Tahoe – the same spot where the Donner Party became snowbound and was forced to resort to cannibalism 150 years ago.

In 1846, a party of settlers 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 ski 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.
