5.0 out of 5 stars If you liked The Orphanage... November 22, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
n Shiver, Junio Valverde plays Santi (also plays Santi in Devil's Backbone) a kid who suffers from an allergy to sunlight that forces his mother to move to a small village in northern Spain. The village sits in the mountains and gets significantly less sunlight than the place they were living, so Santi is able to go out during the day and be a normal kid. When a classmate sees something in the woods, Santi and two other kids end up trekking into the woods to find it. One boy ends up dead and Santi is the suspect. DNA testing reveals that he was not the one to kill the boy, but then another man is killed and Santi happens to be nearby yet again. But this time Santi gets a good look at the killer and no one believes him.

A great horror flick! It's suspenseful and the acting is great. There's also a nice little twist at the end that could be considered somewhat predictable, but worked for me.

I recommend this movie. It is the rare combination of skillful direction and cinematography with a plausible, scary plot. Too many horror movies rely on blood and gore to mask the lack of craftsmanship, originality, and talent involved in their production. In Shiver, the acting is excellent, the scenery is beautiful, the plot is more plausible and artfully presented than most, and (most importantly) it delivers some serious chills without relying on the cliched nonsense we have come to expect from movies of this genre. It is an interesting, exciting, original cinematic experience created by a skilled group of professionals.

The version I watched was offered in Spanish with English subtitles. While some may not enjoy this format, I assure you that after a few minutes, and once you become involved in the story, it will be a worthwhile, rewarding cinematic experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars "How do you celebrate Midsummer?" "Very carefully..." December 31, 2010
Format:DVD
It's going to take more than a conveniently scheduled night school and a pair of sunglasses to assist Santi in coping with photophobia (not an actual fear of sunlight; just overly sensitive to it). A change in location might do the trick, but Santi's mother feels Lapland might be a bit on the extreme side. The consolation prize is moving to a remote village in northern Spain that is surrounded by mountains, thus limiting the country folk to daylight on a regular basis. Something else seems to surround said village... a fear, a superstition, if you will, of what walks through the woods... When legends begin to form into a possible reality, does the real evil reside amidst the wilderness, or from the new residents of the town? I mean xeroderma is a most understandable symptom from Santi's condition, but enlarged canine teeth? Yes, members of Spain's horror film gurus in the 21st Century (that Guillermo del Toro seemed to have started) have assembled again (producers Alvaro Augustin and Javier Ugarte; production designer Pilar Revuelta; Junio Valverde as Santi) to make another visually absorbing but, unlike the others, slightly disapointing. However, considering the pedigree of the filmmakers at hand, slightly disapointing still equates to an above average horror film, which includes some of the scariest deep woods scenes ever. Note: Audio and subtitles are available for both Spanish and English, but I would recommend to do without the English dub (which has that all too obvious soundstage aura and lacks a lot of enthusiasm in the dialogue) unless you absolutely abhor reading subtitles. 6.75/10

5.0 out of 5 stars Born To Be Wild... January 12, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
SHIVER is the tale of a boy named Santi and his mum, relocating to a small, rural village in northern Spain. They've moved in order to take advantage of the darker days of the canyons, due to Santi's medical condition. Upon arrival, things begin to happen that plunge them into mystery, savagery, and murder. Santi is well-played by Junio Valverde (THE DEVIL'S BACKBONE), and represents the misunderstood, lonely outsider, forced to deal w/ horrors that no one else believes in. He is suspected of the very crimes that he's trying to solve. This leads to a nice twist and a disturbing revelation. If you're looking for fear and suspense, SHIVER delivers...

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay, but not all that scary ..... September 2, 2010

The premise is really good and there are a few scary parts. The big twist in the movie was one of the best, but the story overall just didn't quite live up to the hype.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dynamic/Interesting Story November 2, 2009
Format:DVD
This film was not what I was expecting. I like foreign horror films, especially Spanish (like The Orphanage, The Nameless, Pan's Labyrinth(not horror, I know)), and it's probably because they have innovative storylines that do not lead to predictable endings. Always visually stunning, with great moody scores, they just seem to have a great grasp on capturing an eerie mood and dragging the audience in.

Shiver is no exception to mastering the sensory magic of foreign horror films. But Shiver is a departure in its storyline. Santi is allergic to light, so his mother moves out to rustic valley to help his health. Once Santi appears, strange things begin to happen in the woods with fatal results. What is happening, and how will Santi prove he is not the cause? Great twists and turns keep you interested and breaths new life into the horror genre.

Well done film with an innovative story that deserves a look. Recommended.
