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
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

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty, but predictable. January 27, 2010
Eskalofrio (Isidro Ortiz, 2008)

I have seen it said in other reviews that Eskalofrio (in English, Shiver) avoids the trajectory of the American horror film. Here, of course, one should read the implicit "bland" and "boring" just in from of "American" in that phrase, and to be sure, the American horror industry, especially in the studio system, does smack of bland and boring on a regular basis. That does not mean, however, that every foreign horror film is better than every big-budget American horror film (I qualify this because even the meanest defender of all things foreign over all things American would not dispute, I hope, that there is much excitement, if not much talent, to be had in the indie, direct-to-video world where horror is thriving). Eskalofrio is a perfect example of this; in fact, it travels that exact American horror-industry trajectory, though it does so with slightly more grace than one would get from Hollywood.

Santi (The Devil's Backbone's Junio Valverde) is a teenager with a marked sensitivity to light and growing canines. His doctor advises his mother, Julia (Blame It on Fidel!'s Mar Sodupe, looking somewhat haggard here, but still, has the camera loved any woman's face more in recent years?), to move out to the country, where there are entire regions where the daylight is short. Thus, Julia and Santi pack up for one of those lovely, provincial villages in northern Spain, where Santi can live something akin to a normal life--except that the villagers are immediately convinced the kid's vampire. All except for Angela (Blanca Suarez, currently enjoying fame on TV in The Boarding School), the daughter of the local constable, who takes a shine to Santi. It doesn't help his case that a sheep showed up dead, throat torn out, soon after Julia and Santi arrived.

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