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.

I purchased this film, shaver, along with pans labyrinth and the orphanage for some of my Spanish language students. I found this film to be not as of superior quality as the other two. it just seem to me that the plot line was not as dynamic and thick as the other two films. I think that often times we compare American horror films to the standard of European horror films and I find that most often the horror films produced in Europe or other Spanish speaking countries to be far more interesting and push the envelope a little more. I do also find it interesting that the main character in this is a teenager who is sensitive to light and growing canines is also from the movie the Devils backbone, which I have also shown my Spanish language students before as well. In the movie a doctor advises the boys mother to move out of town to an area where all of the region is in minimal daylight. Thus the boy and his mother move to northern Spain where he can live a normal life. Except for one thing and that is that the villagers are immediately convinced that The main character is a vampire. This is of course with one exception for the character Angela who the boy meets at school. The plot then twist when a sheep shows up dead and then some children die adding a scary factor to the plotline. The plotline then develops even more when it is discovered a legend about a feral child that lives in the area that might be responsible for the animal and child deaths. I have to say on the overall that I thought this film was decent but not superb like some of the other Spanish-language horror films I have seen before. Others such as pans labyrinth that, the Devils backbone, and the orphanage were far better than this one. I got the whole idea of the boy being allergic to the sun, but the enlarged canine teeth?Read more ›

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...

Terrifying. Beautiful cinematography. Really interesting story. Sad story. Pretty decent actors, I think. It's in Spanish with English subtitles, and I'm not fluent in Spanish, so maybe their acting is really bad and I'm just not seeing it. But definitely in my top ten. It's a great movie.

This is a very unique, interesting, original, creepy, spooky and a true little gem of a film that went under the radar. This is a Spanish speaking horror film with English subtitles. I have to admit this was perfectly made in the nostalgic horror story telling and most of all imagination department.

A beautiful woven fairytale type of setting in modern-day times. You have a young kid that suffers from photophobia, an intense allergy to light, especially sunlight. The old and new tease saying something in the sense of vampire. He's just a kid with skin problems and the sun burns him creating people to gossip.

The movie is brilliantly acted and vividly created in the hair-raising department. There's a darkness to it. An underlining creepy, evil campfire tale.

Your main character Santi moves to a new town where the days are short and the cloud cover hides the sun most of the time. In the new town Santi and his mother are outsiders. The home they live in, they discover that a German family used to live there but there's a mystery and suspense that has been denied the truth to the people.
