Shivers Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

BEING TERRIFIED IS JUST THE BEGINNING... Initially reviled in its native land (some critics took exception to the fact the film was largely funded by the Canadian taxpayer), Shivers is an intensely claustrophobic, subversive masterpiece and an essential entry in the oeuvre of one of the horror genre s most gifted auteurs. Some 40 years after its release, it still retains its power to shock. Starliner Island is an idyllic community. Cut off from the rest of the world, the luxury apartment block affords its occupants the chance to escape from the hustle and bustle... of the big city. But this isolation is to prove fatal when a new breed of parasite a combination of aphrodisiac and venereal disease which arouses sexual aggression in its hosts is let loose in the building, resulting in an orgy terror and mayhem. Known under a host of alternate titles such as The Parasite Murdersand They Came From Within!, Shivers is the startling debut full-length feature from director David Cronenberg which anticipates the body-horror concerns of his later films such as The Fly and Videodrome.

Canadian horror written and directed by David Cronenberg. The residents of Starliner Island seem to have an idyllic lifestyle - they live in a remote high-rise tower block with its own shopping complex, recreation facilities and even a private clinic. However, when a mysterious disease takes hold of the Starliner, random acts of sexual violence begin to occur. At the clinic, Dr St. Luc (Paul Hampton) battles to find a remedy for the encroaching virus before the entire island is consumed in a wave of violence.
