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.
The story revolves around a teenager with a rare allergy to sunlight who moves with his mother to a mountain village where shadows of the mountains filter out most of the sun's harmful rays - allowing the teen to have a more social home and school life. However, when police start finding dead bodies, the boy who must live in the dark is suspected of the murders. There is a mysterious being in the woods of the mountain which the teenager must discover in order to clear his name.
This was a great find I rented on Netflix, but ended up purchasing on Amazon.com for a friend of mine who said he also enjoyed the foreign film. There are some good movies coming out of Spain and other countries right now that are well made, have interesting cinemaphotography, and good actors. "Shiver" is one of them. Although the movie might not quite give you the shivers, the movie's name certainly defines the main character's mental state during the ordeal he and his family and friends end up going through.
