Harris' best work since Stake land

"Shiver" was an entertaining film with great performances by Danielle Harris and John "wolf creek" Jarratt.

I was thinking it was going to be a torture porn flick when in fact it was more of a thriller about a serial killer and the one that got away and away and away.the supporting cast was good as well co starring Casper Van Dien and the return of one of my favorites,Rae Dawn Chong whom I though could have been better utilzed.

The story moves quickly and kept my interest.there is some gore but not as much as I had anticipated.We have some decapitated heads which we never see during the act but we get plenty of heads in sacks, heads in formaldahyde and heads falling on the floor.There are some CGI blood spatter effects that I thought would have worked better old school style,but it was effective enough.

Harris really shines in this film and her acting has never been better,she was completely believable as Wendy Alden the pint sized object of "the Griffin`s" (thats what the killer calls himself) affection and abuse.

All in all it was a good thriller that kept you on your toes and I really liked the climax.I recommend it to Harris fans and lovers of the genre.

"Shiver" is much better than expected!
Verified purchase
Being a huge fan of Danielle Harris, this film has been on my radar for some time. Despite some of the reviews I've read, this is actually a very good film, despite the budget. Danielle was top notch as usual (though I love her in even the less than stellar films she's done). The story was interesting and thrilling, and the performances were believable. I didn't find much of the film to be scary but it did build suspense very well. Overall, I'd definitely recommend this film to others. It may not be everyone's cup of tea but I'd say it's certainly worth a watch. I for one will be adding this to my cart immediately.

Great actor-waste of his talent

Horrible movie and horrible acting by a normally terrific actor, John Jarratt. I guess there isn’t much a good actor can do with terrible lines from a terrible script!

Good, Realistic Feel
Verified purchase
I've not yet read the novel this is based on, but I'd very much like to.
This would have been terribly easy to overdo. The killer, Gryphon (John Jarratt) is so exaggerated, and the transformation of his ultimate victim, Wendy (Danielle Harris) is so extreme that it would have been easy to do this as a Quentin Tarantino type dark comedy with all the acting stylized. Nothing against Tarantino, but this story I think was much better served by director Julian Richards' more restrained and realistic approach.
