Storyline

Santi, a young high-school student with a serious physical reaction to sunlight, is forced by his health to move with his single mother to a shadowy, isolated village in the mountains of Spain where the inhabitants begin to reveal themselves as strangely xenophobic. When terrible, violent events begin to occur, Santi becomes first a pariah at school and then strongly suspected by the police of hideous murders. Santi himself, however, wonders if he is not the next victim. Written by Jasha

Decent horror flick...."enjoyable"
26 June 2010 | by dude5568See all my reviews

Shiver is a story of a boy who suffers from photo phobia which forces him to move to a location with less sunlight & shorter days,unfortunately this place also hides something very terrifying and so the real story begins.The film was good with a some really terrifying sequences and an interesting story.It makes you feel like watching the Swedish masterpiece 'LET THE RIGHT ONE IN' in a different way,but the films differ very much on many grounds and i am sure that many would agree.Many of my friends who have seen it believe its the best Spanish horror flick of all time,i believe a horror fan(&otherwise also)should never miss such an interesting film which now has prompted me to search for other Spanish thriller/horror movies...definitely better than your average horror flick...
