    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.

    • High definition digital transfer
    • Newly created and exclusive content
    • Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork to be revealed!

Shivers DVD

Great film. Great packaging. Great service. What more could one ask for?

Shivers

Nice steelbook, film is perhaps a lttle tame by modern horror standards, but worth it if you are a Cronenberg fan.

Shivers - Steelbook Edition

Arrived on time, no dents or damage to the steelbook as it was very well packed and wrapped. Good service and no complaints at all. Have been a customer for a few years.
