Director Isidro Ortiz | 2008 | 91 minutes | Horror | Spanish
Junio Valverde of THE DEVIL’S BACKBONE stars as Santi, a bullied teen who suffers from a rare and violent allergy to sunlight. When his condition worsens, he and his mother are forced to move to a remote village in the mountains. His arrival marks the beginning of a series of brutal slayings. Something is alive deep in the shadowy forest. Can a frightened outcast find safety in the darkness or does the ultimate terror wait in the most unexpected place of all?
Francesc Orella and Mar Sodupe co-star in this chilling Spanish horror thriller from acclaimed director Isidro Ortiz (FAUSTO 5.0) and features art direction by Pilar Revuelta, Oscar® winner for PAN’S LABYRINTH.
“Shiver is shot beautifully, though, and director Ortiz never lets the plot slow down once it picks up speed. It’s not a bad film by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s not anything you’ll be talking about for very long afterward.”
– Dread Central
“a well-made coming-of-age thriller that, for at least its first half, will have viewers suitably mystified and unnerved – even if they are somewhat less wild about the dénouement.”
– Little White Lies
